Could changes or transmutations of elements in the Earths environment by an Electric Universe catastrophe event, or just a change in our local solar system circuit, help stimulate the conditions for plagues and diseases that have swept round the world or effected certain areas? Or famine that could lead to plagues?
If chemical elements like selenium, zinc, iron could be electromagnetically or biological transmuted then an increase or decrease from the normal ranges could cause mass extinctions.
The element selenium appears to have varied in its concentration around the catastrophes known as the Devonian, Triassic and Ordovician mass extinction events.
Would an EU plague have to be caused by a catastrophic event or could it be triggered by electromagnetic events such as comets, like the Justinian Plague of 562 AD?
Elements deficiency: plagues and diseases?
Selenium is also used for preventing serious complications and death from critical illnesses such as head injury and burns. It is also used for preventing bird flu, treating HIV/AIDS, and reducing side effects from cancer chemotherapy.

The reason: Ebola and other deadly viruses, including the human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1), might be stimulated by deficiencies in the mineral selenium. And Zaire-where the Ebola and HIV-1 viruses first appeared-may be a viral "hot zone" because of low selenium levels in the soil and widespread selenium deficiencies among people living off that land.
Too strange to be true? To the contrary, a similar connection has been established in China, where a common virus mutates into a dangerous form when it infects people deficient in selenium.
Selenium, an essential mineral, functions as an antioxidant and a component of another antioxidant, glutathione peroxidase. Deficiencies of either substance impair the body's immune system and ability to fight infections. But if recent research is any indication, the role of selenium in disease prevention may be much more profound than previously imagined.
Is Selenium Deficiency Behind Ebola, AIDS and Other Deadly Infections? | Dr Passwater
These diseases are most common in certain parts of China where the intake is low because the soil is extremely deficient in selenium. Studies in Jiangsu Province of China have indicated a reduction in the prevalence of these diseases by taking selenium supplements. In Finland, selenium salts are added to chemical fertilizers, as a way to increase selenium in soils.

Large increase in 1 element is bad for your health
However, too much manganese in the diet could lead to high levels of manganese in the body tissues. Abnormal concentrations of manganese in the brain, especially in the basal ganglia, are associated with neurological disorders similar to Parkinson's disease. Early life manganese exposure at high levels, or low levels, may impact neurodevelopment. Elevated manganese is also associated with poor cognitive performance in school children.
... Calcium, phosphorous, and manganese work closely together in the body. For this reason, you may need more manganese if you are getting more calcium and phosphorus.

Micro micronutrients means massive famines?
Called micronutrients because they are needed only in minuscule amounts, these substances are the “magic wands” that enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones and other substances essential for proper growth and development. As tiny as the amounts are, however, the consequences of their absence are severe. Iodine, vitamin A and iron are most important in global public health terms; their lack represents a major threat to the health and development of populations the world over, particularly children and pregnant women in low-income countries.

Animal and plant famine elements
And do some devastating plagues and famines go hand in hand as the health of the animals and plants is also destroyed by their loss of micronutritents, trace elements and elements that are essential not just for human life but cell, plant and animal life.
Could a massive electromagnetic change or instantly transmute elements and chemical compounds in rocks, plants, animals, humans?
Could it be that element changes or element transmutations to animals and plants may be all that is needed to cause famine and plague?
Animal proteins are a good source of zinc. Beef, pork, and lamb contain more zinc than fish. The dark meat of a chicken has more zinc than the light meat.
Other good sources of zinc are nuts, whole grains, legumes, and yeast.
Fruits and vegetables are not good sources, because the zinc in plant proteins is not as available for use by the body as the zinc from animal proteins. Therefore, low-protein diets and vegetarian diets tend to be low in zinc.

Selenium is a mineral. It is taken into the body in water and foods. People use it for medicine.
Most of the selenium in the body comes from the diet. The amount of selenium in food depends on where it is grown or raised. Crab, liver, fish, poultry, and wheat are generally good selenium sources. The amount of selenium in soils varies a lot around the world, which means that the foods grown in these soils also have differing selenium levels.
