Chronic selenium poisoning, commonly known as "Alkali Disease", is quite common in most of the states in the Great Plains area. Since the discovery that selenium is the cause of "Alkali Disease", as a result of a survey by Franke and others (1) in 1934, and the isolation of selenium from toxic grains by Robinson, there has been a great deal of work reported on the effects of selenium on the animal body. A summary of the work reported in studying selenium poisoning was published by Moxon (2) in 1937.
