Most of the microorganisms create matter that has a toxic effect upon the environment, other microorganisms and people. These types of matter are called toxins and the nomenclature is derived from the place of action, as well as what they are a byproduct of. Maitotoxins are quite dangerous toxins which are created by mold. Mold contaminates cereals (corn, wheat, rice…), bread, peanuts and others. After they settle, they create maitotoxins which are very dangerous if consumed. Their action could even be manifested by a cancerogenic state.
