Chromatography technique (TLC).
Results: There were 100 from 150 samples of blood containedAflatoxinB1and Patulin. The highest
percentage blood samples contamination with Aflatoxin B1 was (18.181 %) at age group (11-30) years and
Patulin was (20 %) that collected from persons at age group (11-20) years,the percentage of blood samples
that contamination withAflatoxin B1 and Patulin that collected from the female was (52.727 % and 53.33%).
