Spina Bifida is the nation's most common, permanently disabling birth defect. Every woman of child bearing age should include .04mg(400mcg) of folic acid in her daily diet. By doing so, she can reduce her risk of Spina Bifida and other neural tube birth defects by as much as 70%.   Web: www.sbagno.org
