An essential trace element, selenium acts as an antioxidant to protect cells from the free radical damage that causes aging and is linked to many age-related diseases. Karam El-Bayoumy, from Penn State College of Medicine (Pennsylvania, USA), and colleagues performed proteomic analysis of both regular and selenium-enriched yeast. Finding that selenium-enriched yeast produced a change in 37 proteins, a number of which are involved in the carcinogenesis process, the team urges for preclinical animal models and pilot human clinical trials to ascertain the potential beneficial anti-cancer effects.

Kidney SOS
Individuals who consume a diet high in sodium or artificially sweetened drinks are more likely to experience a decline in kidney function. Brigham and Women's Hospital (Massachusetts, USA) researchers studied data collected on more than 3,000 women participating in the Nurses' Health Study. They found that:“in women with well-preserved kidney function, higher dietary sodium intake was associated with greater kidney function decline...
