taining the main results of the research in the area of mycotoxins and toxigenic fungi in relation to food safety was made and distributed to partners and other interested persons.

The African conference in Accra (Ghana) focused on the transfer of information for reducing the impact on mycotoxins in tropical agriculture, whose proceedings are summarized in the present volume. The conference was a medium to exchange information on current situation of mycotoxins in food and export crops, detection methods, institutional agreements and policies associated with public health and trade. The goal of the conference was to recommend priority actions in the areas of technical, institutional and policy options for improving public health and trade through management of mycotoxins in pre-harvest

Nutrition is a matter that people spend their careers learning about and requires volumes of books to explain. My objective is to instruct you how to consume a healthy nutritional diet that aids your body in burning off fat instead of storing it. You do not require overwhelming science to get this.
