Folate deficiency linked with higher risk of early miscarriage

According to a study of Swedish women by researchers at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), pregnant women who have low blood levels of the vitamin folate are more likely to have early miscarriages than are pregnant women who have adequate folate levels. Folate occurs naturally in beans, leafy green vegetables and citrus fruits. Folic acid is also known to lower risk of neural tube defects (NTDs).

The study appears in the current issue of the "Journal of the American Medical Association." More information is available at from the NICHD Web site, http://www.nichd.nih.gov, or from the NICHD Clearinghouse, 1-800-370-2943; E-mail NICHDClearinghouse@mail.nih.gov.
