Abstract :

The fungi effects were investigated using male albino rats (100 g) body weight which was ingested at five concentrations
(0.03-0.18Canidia/g) each fungi for two months relative to normal control. The body weight rats and weight organs (liver – brain
and kidney) were paralleled in two fungi after treatment. In the case of B. bassiana, there was slight effect in total proteins, total lipids,
glucose 6- phosphate, acid phosphate and alkaline phosphate, but M. anisophial had no effect on rats. The results of the present work
advice the need to use fungi in stored products insects and safety exposure of human.
