Dec. 11, 2010 - PRLog -- Selenium is an essential trace mineral found in soil, water and some foods that forms and important part of our immune defense function.  According to Dr. Ray Sahelian, selenium is necessary for the production of antioxidants, which reduces free-radical cell damages.  These antioxidants are beneficial to the effects of the damages done by free radicals in people with chronic disease.
Selenium has been approved by the Food and Drug Association (FDA) for cancer reduction.  "Selenium may reduce the risk of certain cancers.  Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer.  However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive."  This is very exciting news about the benefits of this nutrient even though the results are "limited and not conclusive".  Recently the Journal of the American Medical Association, in a study,showed a 50 percent reduction in cancer deaths, including cancers of the lungs, colon and prostate.  It showed that early stages of cancers were better halted, and that age made no difference.  The young as well as the old benefited from this essential mineral.
As well as possibly altering the genes that cause cancer, selenium also has been shown to reduce the risks of thyroid disease, infertility and arthritis.  Because of its antioxidant effect studies have indicated that it may delay or prevent kidney disease in diabetics.  Diabetics may also experience the effect of the reduction of overall plasma glucose levels which may result in the delay or prevention of neuropathy, retinopathy and lower extremity arterial disease.
Selenium is found naturally in animal protein, fish, and vegetables such as onions, garlic, cabbage, tomatoes and broccoli.  It is also found in sea vegetables, cereal, bread, wheat germ, brewer's yeast, eggs and the Brazil nut.
