Antioxidants, such as selenium, are substances that help our bodies to destroy harmful free radicals that are produced quite naturally in and around the human body and which, if allowed to proceed unchecked, can harm tissues and organs.
As a vital component of the body's antioxidant defence system, a key player in thyroxine metabolism and an invaluable nutrient in reproductive health, falling dietary intakes of selenium are a real cause for concern.
Dietary intakes of selenium in the UK during the 70's were nearly twice the level we consume today. Moreover, official figures show that the selenium intake for 80% of adults in the UK is now below the recommended daily intake.
The situation is due in part to the reduction in imports of selenium-rich, high protein wheat used for bread making from North America, coupled with the wide usage of selenium-antagonistic artificial fertilisers and acid rain exposure.
