Ugali: KOT react to report linking maize to cancer cases


The relationship between maize consumption and the risk of cancer is causing alarm and rightfully so.

Ugali is a staple food loved by all Kenyans and the report conducted on women at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) in Eldoret suggests consumption of aflatoxin in food increases the risk of cervical cancer.

The new study published last Thursday in the journal Open Forum Infectious Diseases, found women with high aflatoxin concentrations in their blood were also likely to have cancer causing HPV strains.

Numerous reports have linked aflotoxin to our favorite meal, and KOT are up in arms about it. Back in 2012, a similar report linked GMO maize strain to cancer with scientists urging authorities to be serious.

KOT are now questioning what they should or shouldn’t eat. Read some comments from Twitter.
