Aflatoxin and possible link to food allergy - effects on intestinal immune system
I've been doing a "little" research into the possibility that mycotoxins such as aflatoxin play a direct role in the development of food allergy.
To make a long story short, the immune system characteristics (specifically the intestinal immune system) of atopic people are similar if not the same as the effects of mycotoxins on the intestinal immune system.
I think I've found some pretty convincing evidence that they are playing a role. Let me know what you think. Just keep in mind that I'm not a medical professional, and the information on my page is not medical advice. If someone out there finds any errors, please let me know.
Please read my web page. I cite all my sources (and there are quite a lot of them...) I haven't yet added links to the sources, but I plan to add them eventually.
