Are You Taking your B's? Do They Make a Difference?

Yes, they do!
In 1998 the March of Dimes teamed up with the Center for Disease Control to deliver a public health message: woman of child bearing years should take 400 mcg of the vitamin daily. It is a simple act of preventative medicine that cuts the risk of neural tube defects like spina bifida more than 50% in developing fetus’s.
Awareness of the supplements benefit have increased dramatically, while in 1995 only ½ of woman ages 18-45 even knew what folic acid was, that figure has jumped up to 77%. By 2004 the number of woman taking their daily dose rose up to 40% and all time high. Did this folic-acids advice reduce birth defects as intended? As a matter if fact the CDC reports that 2 major types of neueral – tube defects have dropped by 25%!!
