First, I like the new format with a leading summary. Very helpful!
This post caught my eye in particular because negotiating my mother's folic acid intake is of concern for me. The cheapest way to get the iron supplement most helpful to her is through prescription. The only form available through prescription is loaded with folic acid! So, in order to control costs AND attempt to control her folic acid level (which her doctor checks fairly frequently), I buy both the Rx and OTC versions and alternate them per dose. In the meantime, the more I read about folic acid, the more confused I become. In addition, because she has anemia due to chronic disease, her B12 levels are also important!
Thank you for researching this and posting all sides of the issue...this post is a great help to me; I'll be bookmarking it.

Thanks a lot for sharing your findings. I think you're doing something great here. Keep up the good work! I have bookmarked this site.


Very nice post - good summaries of many studies. The older I get the more beneficial this information becomes.
