Description

Dr. Saraiya traces the history of folic acid from the 19th century and reviews the contributions of Dr. Lucy Wills and Dr. Yellappa Subbarao for reducing fetal wastage and solving the mystery of folic acid. Further research established the Importance of folates in embryonic development, the genesis of megaloblastic anaemia, prevention of early birth defects especially neural tube defects. L methyl folate is superior to folic acid. Preconceptional use of folic acid will reduce fetal wastage.
