Anyone else see the CNN crawler about concerns about taking folic acid late into pregnancy? That's all it said. Oh so annoying if they aren't going to give more details. Nothing on their website either!!!

I did google folic acid and found today's Times article linking high amounts of folic acid and breast cancer. Fortunately they had good details. Most women take 0.4 mg (that's what is in your PNV). The study looked at 5mg. Those women had a slight increased risk of breast cancer.

Just thought I would pass that along so no one else would have to spend the day worrying.
