Great news has been reported again to support the ever mounting evidence of how taking a multivitamin can decrease risks to diseases such as cancer.
Published in the journal Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics, the study found that multivitamins fortified with folic acid could lower the chances of contracting brain tumors by 27 per cent, leukemia by 39 per cent and neuroblastoma by 49 per cent. There is no need to ask the question why childhood cancers are occurring at an alarming rate. We know nutritional deficiencies are a real problem today.
It has been known for about 15 years that mothers could reduce the risk of their babies being born with Spina Bifida, a malformation of the spine, by as much as 80 percent by taking folic acid prior to and during early pregnancy.
Everyone beginning at birth should be taking supplements to not only decrease risk to illness and disease, but to augment what appears to be an inadequate intake of daily nutrients. Most people do not consume an optimal amount of all vitamins by diet alone., Need a speaker to stimulate your group or organization?
