Deoxynivalenol, 3-acetyldeoxynivalenol, 15-acetyldeoxynivalenol, nivalenol and zearalenone are mycotoxins contaminating wheat dust. Mycotoxins are toxic upon ingestion and considered potentially toxic when inhaled. Whereas dietary exposure to mycotoxins is controlled in food, data on occupational exposure by inhalation by grain workers are scarce. The objectives of this study were to determine the incidence of those mycotoxins in aerosols generated during grain harvesting and unloading and the risk of exposure of workers. Personal sampling revealed that working in a cab was an efficient protective measure. However it was not sufficient to avoid chronic exposure to multiple mycotoxins, in particular during cleaning activities.View this paper.
