More than 300 types of mycotoxins are produced by one-fourth of the cereal crops infected. The foodstuffs containing aflatoxins are indiscriminately being consumed by people developing various ailments, diseases and even cancer innocently. Aflatoxins (Afs) have been the most widely studied mycotoxin worldwide. The disease caused by the ingestion of aflatoxins is collectively called aflatoxicosis. They are mostly found in peanuts, mouldy maize grains, rice and perishable dairy products. There are four major types of aflatoxins (AFB<sub>1</sub>, AFB<sub>2</sub>, AFG<sub>1</sub> and AFG<sub>2</sub>) found in nature mainly produced by the <em>Aspergillus flavus, A. parasiticus </em>and<em> A. nomius</em>. Aflatoxin B<sub>1</sub> has always been a potent carcinogen classified by the WHO in Group “A” as causing cancer in humans. It induces mutation in the p53 gene to develop hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in humans. This is the third leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Keeping view in mind the present paper is an attempt to review the research done so far in the field of aflatoxins in humans. The review focuses on occurrence, epidemiology, historical glimpses, chemical nature and the types of aflatoxins, detection and detoxification, diagnosis, clinical symptoms and the treatment of aflatoxicosis in humans.</p> <p><strong data-id="_bold-2">Keyword</strong><strong data-id="_bold-3">s</strong><strong data-id="_bold-4">: </strong>Aflatoxins, Occurrence, Detection, Detoxification, Aflatoxicosis, AFB<sub data-id="_subscript-6">1,</sub>AFB<sub data-id="_subscript-7">2</sub>, AFG<sub data-id="_subscript-8">1 </sub>, AFG<sub data-id="_subscript-9">2</sub>, Hepatocellular Carcinoma</p> 2023-05-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Mohammad Salim, Shafikun Nisha, Mohammad Shahid Masroor, Shagufta Parween
