Natural Rescue Remedies for Anthrax

Selenium

Natural Sources for Selenium

Foods containing significant amounts of selenium include wheat germ, Brazil nuts, other nuts, oats, whole-wheat bread, bran, red swiss chard, brown rice, turnips, garlic, barley, and orange juice, broccoli, mushrooms, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, onions, and radishes. Other non-vegetable sources for selenium are: brewer's yeast, fish, and organ meats.

However, these foods won't give you an adequate intake if the soil they were grown in was poor in selenium. Unfortunately, most of us have no way of knowing what kind of soil our food was grown in, so supplements may be a good idea. Here is a breakdown on the selenium content of various foods:

High-Selenium Foods  Medium-Selenium Foods  Low-Selenium Foods 
Fresh-water and salt-water fish (red snapper, salmon, swordfish, tuna)

Lobster

Shrimp

Oyster

Organ meats (beef liver and kidney)

Nuts (especially Brazil nut)

Garlic

Radish

Onion

Chives

Sunflower seeds

Medicinal mushrooms (reishi, shiitake)
