This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

400 MCG FOLIC ACID DAILY PLUS DIETARY FOLATE MAY BE MORE THAN NEEDED for the prevention of neural tube defects, James Mills, MD, National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, indicated at a March 3-4 meeting of the Panel on Folate and Other B Vitamins of the Institute of Medicine's Food & Nutrition Board in Washington, D.C. "Four hundred micrograms folic acid, in addition to what you eat, is certainly going to be adequate" to prevent NTDs; "whether we need less than that is going to be the critical issue," Mills said.
