Not sure if this is the best place for this post, but I'll start here. I am trying to investigate if there may be a link between folic acid deficiency and fetal chromosomal abnormalities. I have done a lot of reseach already - i have a son with cleft lip and palate and i have nutritional issues, we think it's linked. i have oodles of studies i have found. anyways, i have read that there are studies linking folic acid deficiences with down's syndrome (mercola has an article and there are many more out there). What i want to find out is if folic acid can be linked to other chromosomal abnormalities besides down's.
my sis just had a m/c at 14 weeks, due to turner's syndrome. i had the same thing at 12 weeks. no family history of chromosomal problems that we know of. we both want more kids. most '"mainstream" info says that chromosomal problems are random or genetic. i *wonder* if there can be a nutritional component to it. trying to find out info to back up my theory!
