Yay for Marmite!
Not all kids decide to have parents who want to eat Vogels though, or who can afford it.

With the decline in cooking skills you can't assume that people know how to make a sandwich any more anyway. :p

Helemets may stop your neural tubes from getting broken during a prangle.

Folate works differently. In layman's terms it blows out the neural tubes of the foetus, ejecting defects like spitballs. The protective effect is quite large, I don't recall how much.

There has been $hit you dont know about in your bread for decades . . . folic acid is the least of your worries!

How about that "nice" chlorine gas we used to bleach and break down the protien in flour so your lovely cakes can be nice and fluffy!

The other additives and ad mixtures so that Bulk Fermentation (the long way to make bread) can be dissed so Mechanical dough Development can take over to churn out your loaves in likkidy split time . . . .

Or the genetic modification of wheat for like the last 50 years to create a higher yield, higher protien flour.

Bring on the folate!

Bakers work crazy stupid hours.
If they make frolic acid compulsory nobody will ever buy bread again.
=} Mass closures of bakeries across the land.
=} Instead of riding their unicycles to work at 3am along state highways they will get regular jobs as accountants and traveling salesmen, almost certainly driving cars
=} =} DRAMATICALLY INCREASING THE RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC FORCING GOOD HONEST COMMUTING CYCLISTS OFF THEIR BIKES.

Stop the madness

Piss easy to get enough folate in your diet if you eat real food.

If not, and you're thinking of having a baby just pop some supp's a few months before trying.

Not my fault if the junkfood generation is too stupid, lazy and ignorant to look after themselves.
