I agree with Vito, it seems that prolonged high exposure, such as 1 ounce a day long term can cause complications. Not to mention, selenium occurs in other foods as well so one would have to only eat these nuts and no other selenium rich foods (chicken, eggs, fish, etc). Not sure if I can post links but on this site Selenium at the bottom it states that we should limit brazil nuts to 2 a day to avoid getting too much selenium. It seems that whether the mineral comes from a whole food or a supplement, it could nevertheless produce undesired effects. I still think they should come with a warning :P I bought a big bag but I'm sticking to 1-3 a day now
