Selenium isn’t a mineral that we hear much about, but it is an essential part of our body’s immune system function, particularly in terms of oxidative stress levels in the body. The ebola virus compromises the immune system, and essentially causes the body to attack itself. High levels of oxidative stress make this takeover even easier, so a lack of selenium may speed up the fatal nature of this terrible viral infection. Some of the foods with the highest levels of selenium include tuna, oysters, Brazil nuts and sunflower seeds.
