Folic acid folly

So, what is the difference between folic acid and folate? One big difference is that folic acid can cause increased risk for cancer and folate can actually lower your cancer risk. Folic acid is the synthetic version of naturally occurring folate. The more of the synthetic folic acid you take, the higher the risk for developing cancer – and especially breast cancer. If you are taking the synthetic folic acid, your body has to convert it to usable folate by using enzymes. The more folic acid you take, the more enzymes you need to convert it. Some people lack the proper enzymes to convert the chemical version to usable folate and are folate deficient despite the fact that they take lots of folic acid. Take activated folate – especially if you are pregnant or could become pregnant.
