Selenium Toxicity

.

Almost every American is taking supplements without knowing the reactions they are causing. Most do not know the ingredients they take daily for years, then they see neurologists for muscle weakness and neuropathy. 90% of the causes of neuropathy are unknown – selenium is one.  Muscle weakness, another. Doctors don’t ask to review labels on supplements.

.

The biggest issue (no pun) is insulin resistance that leads to diabetes and obesity.
