They are naturally occurring mycotoxins produced by the fungi species Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Most frequently, aflatoxins are found in maize and cottonseeds, and of course in their by-products. Less frequently, aflatoxins are encountered in soybeans and any type of distiller&rsq...

OK. Quite a nice article, but difficult to evaluate. There is no mention of milk production, which would be important as all health limits on M1 are based on concentration per litre milk, not per animal. Using your numbers above and the higher 6.2% transformation (carry over is a very poor term) this would give an M1 level of 10.5 µg per cow per day, reducing to 6.9 µg. Assuming 25 litre production, this gives milk concentrations of 0.42 µg or 0.28 µg per litre; both significantly over the EU maxiumum of 0.05 µg per litre (Commission Regulation 1881/2006).
More detail please!!
