Does Bioavailable Arsenic Affect Nutritional Selenium? - A brief review of Se nutrition
U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR
This review describes basic functions of Se-metabolites and some
effects of nutritional Se-deficiencies. It suggests that physiological depletion of low dietary Se by bioavailable As
may exacerbate the etiologies of several human diseases and, perhaps, those of wildlife. Descriptions of the
geochemistry of either Se or As bioavailability are detailed elsewhere.
