Folic* Acid For All - Yay Or Nay? (*just For Oli)

Postby Conners on Mon 13/Feb/12 12:36pm

I see the discussion around the mandatory addition of folic acid to bread is heating up again.

http://www.voxy.co.nz/health/views-soug ... d/5/113862

So what say the vorbii?

Disclaimer: I'm also using this as a sauce of statistics to use in conjunction with the compulsory helmet law dabate. I'm sure there will be a correlation in there somewhere....

Folic acid? Source? Your argufying abilities aren't bolstered by this evidence.

Somehow food became a psychosocial thing rather than a fuel thing. What we need the govt to legislate is a one-food-fits-all like cars - run on one fuel sauce > CarboProtrient (TM) ?

Just keep it simple - flavoured liquid or solid.

Studies have shown that the folic acid law will result in no-one ever having babies ever again! It will end the human race as we know it, rats, SUV drivers, unicyclists and cockroaches will rule the world!! Will no one think of the Children!!!!

compulsory hash oil in everyone's bread I say, make everyone chill out a bit :D :D

Of course, would mean cycle helmets would have to remain compulsory with all those stoned drivers out there :o

Yeah chuck it in. Folate makes you ride faster, it is used for red blood cells and other good stuff.

Mothers (and preferably fathers) need to have enought at least a month BEFORE conception. By the time they are aware of the pregnancy it is too late. Given the very high rate of unplanned pregnancies in NZ it is just not fair on the kids, neural tube defects are no joke.

Folate is already a mandatory supplement in USA, Canada, Australia, Chile.

We've already had a generation of stupider than normal NZers because the Min of Health moved a decade or two too slow on iodine after our iodised salt consumption patterns changed. The surveys showed that many breast-fed babies have missed out on the iodine they needed to grow their brains because NZ mothers were often malnourished themselves.

I'll find some links from the UFO guys for balance later, no time now. :satan:
