The health economics of Aflatoxin

In 2004, several hundred Kenyans became severely ill, and 125 died, of acute aflatoxicosis: a disease of liver failure associated with consuming extremely high levels of aflatoxin in food (Lewis et al. 2005; Strosnider et al. 2006). Since then, over the last six years, greater global public attention has been drawn to aflatoxin and its associated health risk.
