Hello. It is unknown how much a human would have to eat in order to get ill (as we can't feed humans on purpose). Nevertheless, there is a great deal of evidence to strongly suggest that humans do get liver cancer from fairly small amounts of aflatoxin. THe toxic effects of aflatoxin probably take a fairly high dose. There are several good books on this topic if you do a literature search. Look up Groopman. hope this helps,nk
