About the book
This book welcomes all recent researches on the study of selenium effect in environmental and human health. Generally, Selenium (Se) is a mineral of fundamental importances for human health as well as living plants. So Selenium status in general population is very important due to its remarkable benefits to the human body as antioxidant, hormonal regulator, anti-carcinogenic. On the other way, Selenium can be toxic leaving representing a multitude of disciplines from academic, industry, and governments for sharing their extraordinary innovative and unique knowledge on this Selenium results. More ever, Selenium is perhaps the naturally occurring trace rare-earth metallic element of extreme concern worldwide. The excess amounts of Selenium can be lead to toxicosis and teratogenisis in plants and animals, while the permanent effect of Selenium insufficiency can be even more noteworthy. Both excess and deficit are known to cause a wide range of clinical manifestations. Even though a large body of evidence provides vas information about Selenium, the exact molecular mechanisms of its effect in physiologic and pathologic conditions remain unknown. There are several issues related to environmental Selenium and human health, the link between Selenium status in soil-plants-human body such as plants extract Selenium from soil parenthetically and the kind of soil influences the Selenium content in food, necessity of Selenium supplementation in common population, therapeutic effects of selenium in various diseases. This book aims to explore the connection and inter-relationships between Selenium in environment, plants, agriculture, biology, human health, animals, molecular, and biochemistry process.
