Selenium

Before the 1970s, selenium was generally
considered in the same toxic category
as arsenic, lead, mercury or other heavy
metals. The problem was and remains,
selenium is not selenium when it comes
to nutrition. The right selenium is selenomethionine.
Its essential status arises
from the fact that it is protein based.
The other biological form of selenium is called selenocysteine, an enzyme catalyst
of biochemical events. This distinction
came to the fore the day investigators
started dealing with Keshan’s disease, a
human condition characterized by dilated
cardiomyopathy.
