Nice information, many thanks to the author. It is incomprehensible to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is overwhelming. Thanks again and good luck!
I also want to say here about it.
The significance of folic acid deficiency is compounded further by the following attributes:
An association of folate deficiency with elevated homocysteine, leading to increased arteriosclerosis risks
The reduced incidence of neural tube defects with folate supplementation
The role of folate in the occurrence of cancer
Hence, folic acid clearly is of consequence in public health in the United States, especially because heart disease and cancer constitute the number 1 and number 2 causes of mortality in the United States. This article explores the mechanisms and manifestations behind folate deficiency, as well as its ramifications with regard to health and disease at large.
