Folic acid and B12 for heart disease – (08-23-01)By
Cost-effectiveness of Vitamin Therapy to Lower Plasma Homocysteine Levels for the Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease
This article supports the use of fortification of processed grains with folic acid and B12 from a cost effectiveness standpoint. However, this is just another perfect example of science trying to best nature. I have a novel idea…how about saving the money used to fortify nutrient-stripped grains and use it to educate the difference between whole grains and refined carbs? That the concept of “enriched” does not mean better. That refined carbs increase risk of HTN, diabetes, many types of cancer, heart disease and just about everything else, while whole grains protect against all of these. So many times we want to throw money at the problem without fixing the underlying problem.
