After alleviation of hunger, health is the ultimate goal of most agricultural research. New data in aflatoxin research reveals the extent to which this is true. Aflatoxin, a potent poison that contaminates groundnut and other crops, is very common but difficult to detect. A sample survey by ICRISAT researchers in Andhra Pradesh examined the extent of aflatoxin contamination in groundnuts, chilies and various spices (ginger, black pepper, turmeric and coriander). The results revealed that a frighteningly large number of groundnut byproducts like chikkies (peanut crunch candy) were contaminated.
