Too Much Folate in Pregnant Women Increases Risk for Autism, Study Suggests – John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
Our “Best Article of the Week” comes to us from John Hopkins School of Public Health discussing new research concerning excess levels of folate as well as serum B12 in pregnant women and potential autism risk.
While the implications of this research are concerning, as practitioners we know that it’s important to take a step back and evaluate this information in order to get a clearer sense of what it means for our clients and their individual risks.
The preliminary findings regarding the research will be presented May 13 at the 2016 International Meeting for Autism Research in Baltimore and understanding more about the populations of women with elevated values, such as methylation difficulties and other factors such as folate in the diet, will be useful in order to more fully understand the link to autism.
Research that presents specific information pertaining to the health of our clients, especially when it comes to prenatal care, will always be vital. Evaluating forthcoming data, however, to provide more conclusive and explanatory rational is just as critical when applying it to our client’s individualistic needs. In other words, seeing the whole picture, which won’t leave you missing the forest for the trees.
