Storage Surveys and How They May be Used Both to Detect and Estimate Fungal Contamination in The Diet

  • G. A. Gilman

Abstract

Whether or not proof will eventually be forthcoming regarding the possible association between fungal toxins and liver cancer in man, is still open to question. One thing that is certain, however, is that losses due to fungal deterioration can be considerable and the consumption of damaged foodstuffs is to be discouraged for many reasons. Maximum effort should, therefore, be directed to the prevention of such damage, to which end a thorough knowledge of post-harvest handling and storage methods is essential.
