As far as I know, peannuts are a potential allergen and are also too high on omega 6, throwing the already poor omega 6 to 3 ratio even more into dangerous grounds. Does this cause cancer? Not sure, but this ratio seems to be responsible for many diseases.

did some batch get contaminated with aflotxins?
In africa this can be a problem, in europe the fod should be tested before sold to say the batch is not contaminated.

peanuts sometimes contain a contaminant that is the most carcinogenic substance known to man.its a byproduct of mold that grows on peanuts.it causes liver cancer.

I'd be worried about red meat more than nuts.

Everything in moderation. If you are going to worry about every little thing that can cause "an increase in the risk" you might as well just put yourself out of your misery as like Ritzol said, its everything.

Just don't worry about and enjoy life.

aflotoxin.

in the UK they test for it,
its a result of peanuts been left in damp humid conditions. In africa the food safety policy are not implemented in the same way as modern countires so it will still get sold.

"its a result of peanuts been left in damp humid conditions. "

so when i leave mine in damp humid conditions the same thing will happen?
I often have eaten peanuts that were kinda damp when i was away from home and brought them

Worry about something a little more dangerous to your health, and stop stressing over peanuts. They're not going to give you cancer, it's bunch of bull****. Moderation is the key to everything. Ya too many peanuts probably aren't good for you, but too much sex isnt good for you either. I think you're stressing way too much. Take a deep breath and relax man.

Yes eatting peanuts causes cancer. But keep in mind not eatting them causes cancer too. :scratch: :scratch: :scratch:

Don't worry about peanuts too much. You don't have to worry about most foods as long as you eat it in moderation. If you want to worry about cancer stop 2nd hand smoking (going to clubs/bars) and stop going any where near a car exaust.

For the love of God, eat the peanuts. So many more things to worry about than that. And if your peanuts are moldy looking and you eat them, I'm worried about you.
