These days it is widely believed by experts that most cancers are caused by environmental factors. The epidemiology of most of these suspected factors is still equivocal. One such factor which has been widely studied is aflatoxin, a chemical produced by the fungus .

This paper attempts to summarize some of the historical and epidemiological evidence regarding aflatoxins and disease.
