Moulds are everywhere in our environment. Some are harmless but others can prove dangerous, even fatal. Some can produce dangerous molecules called mycotoxins, invisible to the naked eye but which act insidiously. They are now proven to be toxic and are a potential source of diseases like cancer in consumers.
Which moulds are dangerous? Are there at-risk foodstuffs and more exposed populations?
This work deciphers these food risks in everyone's daily routine, in the food choices whether from the local, international, organic or fair trade market. It unveils accessibly the nature of these toxins and suggests means to counter their effects.
