Solution to two problems - A search

Birds have flu and humans have AIDS (in some cases). The antioxidant Selenium can be inserted as se-met or Se-cys into the protein (NAR, 1988; JBC 1990, IJEB 1994). The direct Se has teratological effects on chick embryos and causes damage to the system(Padmaja 1994 and Sandhya 2008 published elsewhere data). However recent reports (2002-2007) said that because of the feeding of chicks on Se-feed it will be possible to reduce the bird flu viral protein synthesis and also AIDS viral protein synthesis may be blocked by feeding the eggs of the hen that fed with Se feed. Here the Se may be present with egg protein.Therefore it is necessary to learn about the procedure to how to do this experiment and how to reduce the farmers burden by saving the birds from flu and also AIDS patients where this particular problem is prevalent. Any solution to this? Advise not for Se pills etc.
