  • Folate-Deficiency Anemia

    BACKGROUND: The United States implemented mandatory folic acid fortification of enriched cereal grains in 1998. Although several studies have documented the resulting decrease in anemia and folate deficiency, to our knowledge, no one has determined the prevalence of folate-deficiency anemia after fortification.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
