Effects of Folic Acid on Blood Cells
Abstract:Folic acid, a water-soluble vitamin, prevents anaemia, depression and certain types of cancer. Recently, it was found that overdose of folic acid can cause severe heart and kidney problems. Hence, the present study was designed to investigate the role of folic acid in cell disruption, abnormal cell proliferation and to determine if folic acid needs a co-factor such as iron to prevent cell death.
