Aflatoxins

Alternative title
Aflatoxins: Chemistry in Its Element
Synopsis
Why did thousands of turkeys drop dead across England in 1961? Why is eating peanut butter on a stick of celery better for you than spreading it on toast? This podcast answers both questions by investigating what aflatoxins are and how they cause DNA mutations inside liver cells that lead to hepatocellular carciroma. [6 minutes]
