Why we need selenium

Selenium is a vital antioxidant that protects cells from damage. Selenium is also required for the regulation of blood clotting in the body. Selenium produces natural anti-clotting effects and a selenium deficiency causes both abnormal blood clotting and hemorrhaging. Two things come to my mind when selenium deficiency is suspected: Number one is mercury amalgam fillings as selenium binds with the constantly off-gassing mercury vapors from metal tooth fillings. The second thing that comes to mind is the rapid depletion of selenium in the body when it is attacked by viral selenoproteins. This is the main reason that Ebola and other hemorrhagic fevers produce characteristic hemorrhaging with the formation of blood clots. (You see hemorrhagic problems more among populations that suffer nutrition deficiencies.) Selenium deficiency also produces immune deficiencies that lead to cancer and many chronic immune system related diseases. Many viruses like HIV also deplete selenium and exacerbate immune problems. For the most part though, megadosing selenium would do more harm than good. Try taking 200mcg a day for general health – a little more if you have a mouthful of mercury and/or are fighting cancer.
