The importance of selenium in nutrition was studied starting in 1979, on the occasion of the discovery of Keshan’s disease, typical of areas of China and characterized by cardiovascular disorders (cardiomyopathies) in childhood and in women of childbearing age. The cause was related to the selenium deficiency in the soil of those areas. The importance of selenium in nutrition was then resumed in the following years by the WHO (World Health Organization- 1996).
