Re: Folic acid. Where is public education?
Whilst the article on folic acid and its potential dangers is important, perhaps equally so is the lack of knowledge about taking folic acid supplements before pregnancy and in the first trimester. This seems to have now dropped out of education in schools or the wider community, much as the public health advice on vitamin D is 'news ' to most people. See NHS Choices, vitamin supplementation, for the advice available. But why does the NHS/public health not use social media, etc, to push this message?
