Selenium and Cancer Rates

Selenium and Cancer Rates

I am always very grateful for the good information shared by Dr. Mercola but I found this report on selenium particularly interesting. He really gives a nice breakdown on the different types of selenium and how the different forms of selenium have been found to reduce the risk of some cancers.

By Dr. Mercola Micronutrients are incredibly important and vital to your health, but are you getting enough, and perhaps even more importantly, the right form? Mark Whitacre, Ph.D., is a leading expert on one of the most important micronutrients, selenium. Selenium is a trace element a Swedish chemist, Baron Jöns Jacob Berzelius, discovered almost 200 years ago. Today, modern scientists recognize it as an essential mineral for human health, with potent anti-inflammatory, antiviral and anti-cancer activity. There are fewer than 100 selenium Ph.D. biochemists in the world. Whitacre received his master’s degree in nutrition at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, in the late 1970s — a time when selenium was quickly becoming a hot topic. “After I finished my master’s degree at Ohio State, I went to Cornell University to get my Ph.D. in nutritional biochemistry and to study under Dr. Gerald F. Combs Jr. [who] was probably the leading authority in selenium research, and probably still is,” Whitacre says. During his Ph.D. research at Cornell in selenium biochemistry, Whitacre researched the biochemical role of selenium in pancreatic cells. At the time, researchers were just starting to discover the biological necessities for selenium. Selenium in Health and Disease Prevention Selenium serves two very important and interrelated...

Micronutrient Therapies: Modern Living With Kathy Ireland® Features Hardy Nutritionals® I was so pleased to see David Hardy interviewed by Kathy Ireland. Both have been great champions for health for many years! Here is the interview. David Hardy, founder of Hardy Nutritionals® and formulator of Daily Essential Nutrients and Daily Self Defense™ micronutrient therapies sat down with one of Forbes Top 50 Most Successful Women, Kathy Ireland, on the set of Modern Living With Kathy Ireland® as sponsored programming, to discuss the scientific evidence and clinical applications for Hardy Nutritionals® products.

During the segment, a patient, who also happens to be a practicing therapist, shares her experience with Daily Essential Nutrients, Hardy Nutritionals® clinical strength micronutrient formula.
