Scientists: Russian Grains Might Be Hit with Dangerous Fungus

Researchers argue that the last grain harvest in Russia may be hazardous to people due to possible infection of the Fusarium fungus, which can release large quantities of mycotoxins.

      By getting into the food through pastry or beer these hazardous substances can cause poisoning, while their prolonged use provokes chronic diseases.

      In the middle of the 20th century, the defeat of cereal fungus led to mass poisoning in the Central Region of Russia and the South Urals. The first symptoms resembled drunkenness. As a consequence lots of people were diagnosed with septic angina, leading to changes in blood composition.
