Abstract Selenium was measured in red blood cells, serum and hair of children and in breast milk of mothers in seleniferous areas of Venezuela by means of neutron activation analysis. Signs of selenosis were observed only in a few cases. Reduction in the rate of growth is discussed with respect to unequal local nutritional conditions during the growth period.
