Selenium and climate change

Based on more than 33,000 soil samples and environmental data from around the world, a model finds links between climate and the concentration of selenium (Se), an essential micronutrient for human health, in soil, and predicts overall decreases in soil Se concentrations, particularly in agricultural areas, by 2080-2099 under moderate climate change, potentially increasing the prevalence of Se deficiency in humans. - Read at PNAS
