Dear all

Aflatoxin detected in pistachios kernel from Iranpistachio & pistachio product from  USA for your info and action. 

Aflatoxins and its health effect

Aflatoxins are one of the most potent toxic substances that occur naturally. Diet is the major way through which humans are exposed to aflatoxins. Aflatoxin has been classifid as a group one carcinogen (IARC).  It has been proved that these aflatoxins are immunogenic, teratogenic and they retard the growth in children. Exposure to large doses (>6000mg) of aflatoxin may cause acute toxicity with lethal effect ( example - acute hepatocellular injury) whereas exposure to small doses for prolonged periods is carcinogenic (liver cancer).

Berdasarkan pembacaan saya kita perlu mengelakkan daripada memakan apa-apa jenis kacang yang telah berkulat, kerana toxin ini terhasil daripada kulat yang membiak pada kacang.
