Natarajan M., Selvam V. and Dr. Swaminathan S.*

ABSTRACT

Silicon (Si) is the second most abundant element in earth’s crust next
to oxygen. Although a neglected element, it has many applications in
many diverse fields, from construction industry to the most advanced
computer components as well as in human health and diseases.
Silicones which are products manufactured when Si is combined with
carbon, hydrogen and oxygen is the form medically used for many
human health, especially in implants. Silicon also plays significant role
in health and diseases of renal, cardiovascular, bone metabolism and
breast implants. Research done in the past has identified the
implications of silicon in Kidney, Cardiovascular, bone and implants
for humans. This mini review highlights a condensed research findings
done during the past two decades on the beneficial/toxic effects of
silicon in the above mentioned organs. There are lacunae about silicon
in other areas of human health such as diabetes, endocrine, Infertile

the beneficial effects of this important mineral.
