Incorporation of dietary criteria into national criteria for trace elements will occur only after a sufficient database of information is generated from dietary toxicity studies. Recent findings with environmentally relevant forms of mercury (methylmercury) and selenium (selenomethionine) in birds have shown that mercury and selenium may be mutually protective to the toxicity of each other in adult birds but synergistic in combination to the reproductive process in embryos. Further studies are needed to examine the relationship between selenium, nutrition, and other trace elements that may be toxic by compromising cellular antioxidative defense mechanisms.
