FOLIC ACID SUPPLEMENTATION AND CANCER
IS THERE A LINK?
These studies, as are virtually all nutritional studies, are performed using Synthetic Supplements. Most likely, they are the same kind of Nutritional Supplements that you are taking. Is there really a difference between Synthetic Nutritional Supplements and Whole Food Supplements? You bet your sweet bippy there is! It is the reason that studies on specific Nutritional Supplements frequently show no benefit (HERE, HERE and HERE are a few examples). Allow me to explain.
Even though all vitamin companies will tout their products as "natural", this is far from the case. The vitamins found in "enriched" foods like the flour mentioned above, are cheap, super high potency, synthetic fractions of what God built into real food. For instance, women get duped into taking really crappy calcium supplements that contain mega amounts of ground up chalk (HERE) ---- and maybe some Synthetic Vitamin D ---- and are told it will prevent Osteoporosis. WHOLE FOOD NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS are different. The truth is, unless you are actually looking for a drug-like effect from the synthetic fraction (for instance, I.V. Ascorbic Acid for cancer), Whole Foods or Whole Food Supplements are the only way to go. I would suggest you glance at the link above to understand this concept better.
