The most important agriculture oriented mycotoxins are aÃ¯Â¬Âatoxins, possible for hepatic cancer, childhood impairment and also causes acute toxicosis; fumonisins, are linked with esophageal cancer and neural tube defects (NTDs); while immunotoxic deoxynivalenol (DON) and other trichothecenes, cause gastroenteritis; and ochratoxin A (OTA), has been connected with kidney diseases.
