According to the Women's Health Letter, buying nuts and seeds from bulk bins in health food stores could make you sick. Nuts sometimes get a common mold that has a by-product known as aflatoxins.  Aflatoxins are among the most potent carcinogens known to man.  It is believed aflatoxins are responsible for the majority of liver cancer cases in the world. Aflatoxins are not detectable as they are completely colorless, tasteless, and odorless.  To protect yourself and your family buy only prepackaged nuts.  Australia and the United States have the highest standards of inspection, storage and packaging so buying nuts from those countries are your best choice.
