Mode of action of foodborne (natural) toxins

Food may contain a wide variety of natural toxins or compounds that may be of concern when exposure exceeds safe limits. These include natural food additives, mycotoxins like aflatoxin B1, phytoestrogens like (iso)flavones, glucosinolates/isothiocyanates, furocoumarins, tropane alkaloids and compounds from food packaging materials like bisphenol A, phthalates and mineral oils (MOAH and MOHS). The research on this topic is on the mode of action of these toxins, and their risk or risk-benefit assessment.
