Study: Selenium May Stop Zika Birth Defects | Kit Daniels – Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!

The dietary trace mineral selenium may reduce severe birth defects caused by Zika, a recent University of North Carolina study revealed.

The study, which was released in July but received scant media attention, says that Zika mimics a genetic disease known as PCCA by lowering selenium proteins known as selenoproteins.

“This research strongly suggests that selenium, a dietary trace mineral with a proven ability to improve clinical outcomes in HIV/AIDS and several other viral diseases, could also be useful in reducing the risk of neurological disorders and fetal abnormalities caused by Zika virus, including microcephaly, a birth defect characterized by small head size,” cell biologists Ethan Will Taylor and Jan A. Ruzicka stated. “…Low dietary selenium status could be a risk factor for Zika-related neurological and fetal abnormalities [experienced by pregnant women].”
