- ... Aspergillus spp. are ubiquitous fungi that grow on stored grains. Some species produce toxins that can harm human and animal health, leading to hepato- and nephrotoxicity, immunosuppression and carcinogenicity. Major fungicides used to prevent fungal growth may be toxic to humans and their repeated use over time increases levels of resistance by microorganisms. Nanotechnology is an emerging field ...
