Selenium's principal function is to inhibit the oxidation of lipids (fats). It is an essential trace mineral which functions as an antioxidant. Selenium protects the immune system by preventing the formation of free radicals, which can damage the body. Selenium aids in the production of antibodies and helps maintain a healthy heart and liver. This trace element is needed for healthy pancreatic function and tissue elasticity.
Selenium supplements may reduce cancer rates a new study shows (1997): "Men and women taking selenium supplements for 10 years had 41 percent less total cancer than those taking a placebo, a new study by Cornell University and the University of Arizona shows." "Although more than a hundred of animal and dozens of epidemiological studies have linked high selenium status and cancer risk, this is the first double-blind, placebo-controlled cancer prevention study with humans that directly supports the thesis that a nutritional supplement of selenium, as a single agent, can reduce the risk of cancer," said Gerald F. Combs Jr., a nutritional biochemist and Cornell professor of nutritional sciences."
*"Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of Selenium may reduce the risk of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive."
