I recently became pregnant and was told by 2 midwives to make sure my prenatal vitamin contains FOLATE and not FOLIC ACID. Yours is one of the articles I found while researching the subject. When I went for my pregnancy confirmation appointment at my regular OBGYN she prescribed me prenatal vitamins. I requested that they contain FOLATE and not FOLIC ACID. I was told by her that I need to stay off the internet and listen to her and not Google. I’m shocked by the utter lack of education in the medical field, and my own doctors refusal to say anything other than that there is no difference between the two. Neeedless to say I forwarded her this article and have since found another OBGYN. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and keeping my little bean safe.

On a total population basis (accounting for Americans who do not use the internet at all), that means that 68% of all . adults are Facebook users, while 28% use Instagram, 26% use Pinterest, 25% use LinkedIn and 21% use Twitter.
An article on March 9 about changes in the SAT referred incorrectly to two universities’ policies on the SAT. The test is not optional at the University of Georgia or at Johns Hopkins. The same article erroneously attributed a distinction to Wake Forest University. It was the first Top 30 national university in the . News & World Report college rankings to announce a test-optional admissions policy; it was not the first educational institution to do so. (Several institutions adopted a test-optional policy before Wake Forest.)
