Aflatoxin

Tuesday 25 April 2006 9:30-9:45 (Radio 4 FM)


Aflatoxin is a poison produced by mould that grows on damp crops. It hit the headlines when it was named as one of Saddam Hussein's biological weapons of mass destruction.

But the truth is that it's a low key killer that causes malnutrition and infant mortality throughout rural Africa. Jolyon Jenkins meets Chris Wild, a man who is attempting to solve the problem.
