Selenium: Benefits, Uses, Side Effects
KOSA Acupuncture in Gaithersburg, MD describes “FOOD BEHIND CURTAIN – SELENIUM”
What is selenium?(1)
It is a trace element that is naturally present in many foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. What is nutritionally essential for humans, is a constituent of more than two dozen selenoproteins that play critical roles in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, and protection from oxidative damage and infection.

It is a critical part of a major antioxidant enzyme that humans and animals produce to protect delicate cellular components against damage from oxygen free radicals.
Selenium deficiency – Wikipedia(4)
It is also necessary for the conversion of the thyroid hormone thyroxine (T4) into its more active counterpart, triiodothyronine, and as such a deficiency can cause symptoms of hypothyroidism, including extreme fatigue, mental slowing, goiter, cretinism, and recurrent miscarriage.

Dangers of GMO and Roundup;
There are literally no minerals and iron in the above GMO, plants (crops, vegetables and fruits), which used herbicides (Roundup) and foods made with these.
Glyphosate, which is the main ingredient of Roundup makes bonds to enzymes.
Taking selenium may reduce breast cancer
KOSA Acupuncture understands that breast cancer is the indication of unhealthy stomach and liver.
According to KOSA Acupuncture’s theory, liver is in charge of muscle, sinews, vision, eyeballs, anger and reproductive organs in addition to conventional medicine’s opinion.
Therefore, selenium deficiency may cause hypothyroidism, PMS, uterine fibroids, headache, migraine, irregular menstruation, tremor, muscle spasm, diabetes, and etc. not to mention breast cancer.
Peter J Glidden, ND(5) says “If every girl in this country took 200 mcg of selenium in one generation we’d eliminate breast cancer by 82 %.” (from 4 min 35 sec) in his interview, which he says “Chemotherapy is a Waste of Money”.
