Introduction: Aflatoxins are usually produced from Aspergillus Flavus and Aspergillus Parasiticus. This toxin is found in the most of foods, such as rice. The aim of this study was to survey the relation between rice consumption with Aflatoxin M1 excretion rate in women of Yazd using biomarkers.

Methods: This was a cross sectional-descriptive study that was done in 2014. Eighty five women were selected among women who referred to health centers of Yazd. ELISA method was used to measure Aflatoxin M1 in urine samples.

Results: The results show that from total number of 85 women, 94% were excreted Aflatoxin M1. There was a significant difference between rice consumption (p=0.015) and type of consumed rice (p= 0.023) with excretion of Aflatoxin M1.

Conclusion: According to the results it can be concluded that with increasing rice consumption, daily intake of Aflatoxin increases. Therefore the amount of Aflatoxin in rice consumption by women of Yazd is high and a lot of people are exposed to high concentration of Aflatoxin and health hazards related to it.
