SELENIUM

Selenium is an essential micro-nutrient whose best source is seafood given its gradual disappearance from intensively farmed soils. Selenium is toxic in extremely high doses but regarded as safe at normal supplement levels of 50-200 micrograms/day. A potent antioxidant, Selenium is an important co-factor for the body's natural antioxidant glutathione peroxidase system. Selenium in partnership with Vitamin E protects against cancer and prevents lipid peroxidation. Selenium is an effective detoxifier of heavy metals and boosts immune function against bacterial and viral infections.

The most important recent study on Selenium came from the University of Arizona where researchers were looking at the relationship of Selenium to specific skin cancers in 1,312 volunteers with an average age of 62 and a history of skin cancer. Each participant received either 200 micrograms of yeast-Selenium daily, or a matching placebo.

After the study had been in progress for 10 years, researchers found that, although incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer had not been influenced by the supplement, new cases of life- threatening cancers were 37 percent lower among those taking Selenium with highly significant reductions in the incidence of colorectal and prostate cancer. The probability was less than 1 in 1,000 that this beneficial effect occurred by chance. Possibly more significant, the study found that the total cancer death rate was 50 percent lower in the treated group, with mortality from lung cancer significantly and substantially reduced.

A second lesson from the study was that larger than previously used doses of Selenium, 200 mcg per day in the form of Selenium yeast, were extremely well-tolerated with no side effects or other evidence of toxicity, contrary to earlier reports and concerns that such high doses of Selenium would be toxic. Most Americans get less than 100 micrograms of Selenium a day without supplementation, as the trace mineral occurs naturally in food, but in reduced amounts secondary to gradual depletion from soils.
