Importance of Selenium in the Environment and Human Health contains a number of recent studies of the effect of selenium on environmental and human health. There are several issues related to environmental selenium and human health. A link has been noted between selenium status in soil-plants-human body, such as plants that extract selenium from the soil parenthetically, the influence of selenium content on food, the necessity for selenium supplementation in the common population, and the therapeutic effects of selenium in various diseases. This book explores the connection and interrelationships between selenium in the environment, plants, agriculture, biology, human health, animals, and molecular and biochemistry processes. It is an important book for research organizations, governmental research centers, academic libraries, and R&D facilities affiliated to recent research and studies of the effect of selenium on environmental and human health.
