Aflatoxins are divide on B1, B2, G1, G2 groups.

Contaminating of environment by pesticides and aflatoxins, distributing them in products of vegetable and animal origin, creates potential threat for human health, which in turn provides economic losses because of diseases and death rate of agricultural animals.
