Kojic acid is a mycotoxin that appears to be responsible for
wood alcohol build up. In other words, the toxic effect prevents
you from detoxifying wood alcohol. This leads to pancreas
damage, invites pancreatic fluke infestation, and typically results
in diabetes. I find it in potatoes; don't eat potato skins. If you are
a potato lover fix your own so you can peel them and remove any
gray parts. I have also found it in regular coffee.
