Selenium and AIDS
How is selenium related to AIDS?

A recent study of 262 patients with AIDS has shown that
AIDS patients who took 200 micrograms of selenium
suppressed the deadly virus in their bodies and
boosted CD4 immune system cells in their bloodstreams.

About 10 years ago, researchers have identified a link
between selenium deficiency and shorter life spans for
people infected with the virus that causes AIDS.

Selenium can be found in meats, fish, grains and Brazil
nuts.Deficiency of selenium leads to muscle disease,
infertility, heart disease, thyroid problems and faster
mutation of influenza viruses into more virulent forms.
While, Overdose of selenium can cause gastrointestinal
problems, hair loss and nerve damage.
