The epidemiology of neural tube defects: a review of dietary intake and related factors as etiologic agents

The epidemiology of neural tube defects: a review of dietary intake and related factors as etiologic agents
Although efforts are currently under way to clarify the role of dietary intake and/or supplement use in the development of neural tube defects in man, clear associations have not yet been made. Most studies have examined dietary intake/supplements immediately prior to or shortly after conception. However, it is possible that a state of chronic malnutrition contributes to these defects rather than an acute deficiency near the time of conception.
