    Folate deficiency creates more problems in connection with cell division and DNA replication than previously thought, a study shows.

    Once a person lacks folate, the resulting damage is irreversible. The researchers therefore encourage people to be more aware of the level of folate in the blood.
    Folate is a type of vitamin B found in, for example, broccoli, spinach, peas, mushrooms, shellfish, and fruit such as bananas and melon. The Danish Health Authority recommends that pregnant women and women trying to get pregnant take a daily supplement of folic acid.

    Excellent pont, Grulla. Thanks for clarifying.

    I went to school with a friend whose older sister has a NTD (aka "spina bifida"). Despite spending her life in a wheelchair, she led a relatively normal life as a writer and illustrator. She is still alive, sharing a home with her siblings.
