Since fish is a food rich in selenium in Sweden, selenium status among healthy adults was studied after a change to a diet containing 150-200 g of fish per day. In two experiments the fish diet was maintained for 6 and 11 weeks. The mean increase in plasma selenium was 0.13 mumol/l (13%). Most of the increase was evident already after 3 weeks. In previous studies of the same individuals this diet caused a delay in primary haemostasis and a decrease in platelet aggregability. There was no… CONTINUE READING
