Cancer prevention & Selenium:
Data collected from 27 countries revealed that increased dietary consumption of selenium was associated with lower incidence of cancers of the large intestine, rectum, prostate, breast, ovary and lung, as well as leukemia.

selenium supplementation has been found to stimulate
the activity of white blood cells. Selenium may have also have anti-viral properties by enhancing the body’s cellular defenses. Selenium is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies among AIDS and HIV-infected individuals.
