There are things we should know about the etiology of disease. According to Healthline, for every one mineral or trace mineral that a person is deficient in, this can generate different symptoms in the body.


Some of these diseases are also present at birth. The following are causes of diseases and congenital defects that you should know:


1. When someone is deficient in foods that are rich in selenium, this can generate different deficiency symptoms in the person's body. This can cause mood swings, depression, confusion, and anxiety.

Selenium can be found in natural foods like seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, and grains. To avoid selenium deficiency symptoms, include them in your diet.


2. Zinc deficiency can generate different symptoms in a person's body. It can cause a loss of the sense of smell and taste, failure of wounds to heal, and severe body odor.


It can cause depression, hair loss or alopecia, anemia, and weakened immunity. Men can have a low sperm count due to zinc deficiency. One of the strategies for bolstering your sperm count is to introduce the kind of food that is rich in zinc into your diet.

You can blend ginger into their smoothies and drink it. This is rich in zinc. Try to avoid polished rice and instead take brown rice or ofada rice, which is rich in zinc. Eat cucumbers, carrots, and fresh tomatoes. All of these things help to boost the sperm count.


3. Some congenital birth defects are associated with zinc deficiency. If a woman of childbearing age is deficient in zinc and gets pregnant, when she delivers her baby, there is the possibility that the mother's zinc deficiency could create certain problems in her offspring.

This is one of the causes of the problems some babies are born with. They come to this world with these defects in their bodies. The reason they have these defects is that when their mother was pregnant with them, she was deficient in zinc.


The parents unknowingly create problems that the children will live with for the rest of their lives. One of those congenital birth defects is what is known as a cleft palate or a cleft lip.

A child is born and the lip is cleft or sliced. The palate is that tender thing that looks like cartilage. This can also be cleft. When a child is born with a cleft palate or cleft lip, one of the causes is zinc deficiency in the mother when she was pregnant with that particular baby.
