Most of the food items that have been so investigated were in fact purchased from open markets. None of several onthe-table food samples analysed showed a zero value for aflatoxins (20). The average Nigerian no doubt ingests a reasonable dose of aflatoxin on ·a daily basis. This is borne out by the fact that normal "healthy" Nigerians, adult and children, regularly excrete aflatoxins in their urine (20,21). Excretion of aflatoxin has also been demonstrated in breast milk (personal communication).

ABSTRACT The induction of papillomas (and carcinomas) in mouse skin can be experimentally subdivided into the stages initiation, conversion and promotion While initiation is most probably related to gene mutation, conversion is required to render initiated skin sensitive to the tumor promoting effect of agents which induce hyperplastic transformation of skin and sustained epidermal hyperplasia.
