Mycotoxin has acute or chronic toxicity to humans and animals, causing damages to liver, kidney, never tissues, hematopoietic tissues and skin tissues of the organism. Experiment shows that the mycotoxin has a strong carcinogenicity.
Mycotoxin has great damages to poultry, causing chicken spirit low, feed intake decrease, eggshell quality poor and so on. Because toxins are deposited in the gut and live, the autopsy will show that glandular stomach enlarged, papilloma and liver broke
The feed is easy to become moldy when the temperature and humidity are suitable in the environment. Mycotoxin enters into the body of the chicken, causing damages to liver, kidney, immune system, reproductive system. So mycotoxin cannot be distinguished by eye.
A little number of mycotoxins such as aflatoxins have great toxins. In addition, the toxicity of mycotoxin can gradually accumulate to liver and gut.

The results show that prevent mycotoxin more cheaper than treat the disease, The harm of chronic poisoning is greater than acute poisoning. Mycotoxin cause great effect to organism, so need to add feed additive.

Measures for mycotoxin:
1. Toxin adsorption. The separation of mycotoxin and feed will not only adsorb mycotoxin, but also absorb nutrients, so it is not recommended to add too many nutrients in the feed.
2. Control of raw materials: Save the control of environmental humidity and put a certain amount of dry lime
3. Environment management: clean the processing room and the tough.
4. Detoxification toxin: adding bile acids in the feed
Deoxycholic acid and ursodeoxycholic acid can also promote the liver cells to secrete a large amount of thin bile so as to protect liver and gall bladder.
After adding bile acids in the feed, it is obvious that the laying hens have a good spirit, increase feed intake and improve the quality of eggshell. Bile acids can also promote the absorption of fat and fat-soluble vitamins and improve the content of calcium, egg production and eggshell quality in the body.
