This cutaneous condition: known as Selenium Deficiency, can be Discussed here.
Persons finding themselves or loved ones distressed in their lives because of Selenium deficiency may like to share how they cope in order to help others world-wide searching for experiences.
Selenium deficiency promoted by climate change
As a result of climate change, concentrations of the trace element selenium in soils are likely to decrease. Because the selenium content of crops may also be reduced, the risk of selenium deficiency could be increased in many regions of the world. This was shown by a recent study which used data-mining to model the global distribution of selenium. Ref. Source 2o.
Selenium protects a specific type of interneurons in the brain. Exactly 200 years after the discovery of the trace element selenium, researchers have shown for the first time why this chemical element is indispensable for mammalian life. As integral part of the enzyme GPX4, selenium protects a subset of neurons from cell death during postnatal development. Source 4b.
