The neural tube (which forms the spinal cord) is completely closed by the beginning of your 6th week of pregnancy (dating from the first day of your last menstrual period). After the neural tube has closed, a neural tube defect cannot occur. --- Folic acid is taken to prevent neural tube defects. Thanks for reading this:) Source is: http://www.otispregnancy.org/pdf/hyperthermia.pdf

Good post, E. Folate also occurs naturally in collard greens, lentils and chickpeas. The FDA requires it be added to whole grain breads and cereals. The Granola in my kitchen cupboard says one serving has 100% of the minimum daily requirement.

That's true. Fortunately, many foods are fortified with folate b/c I thinks so few people realize the early improtance of folic acid. Thanks Viv:)
