Aflatoxin is a natural poison emitted by several species of fungi. They infect grain, and exploit insect damage. Millions of people are affected by these toxins that invade world food staples, mostly with a higher incidence of specific cancers, like liver cancer. IITA is an organization committed to improving food staples in the developing world. Dr. Ranjit Bandyopadhyay and his team have discovered a fungal species that out-competes the toxic species, and is being distributed under the Aflasafe label. This product has great potential in assisting in food security and long term public health goals.
