Medical professionals believe that folic acid pills should be made mandatory worldwide.
The Emory Institute, the G4 Alliance, and the global disease prevention group Spina Bifida collaborated on a study paper that was published in the international journal Lancet.
Both the mother and the baby benefit from folic acid consumption throughout pregnancy. On the one hand, in youngsters, the process of head shortening is slowed, and spinal cord abnormalities are eliminated. Only 60 countries have added folic acid tablets in flour, corn, and rice after 30 years of research shown that they are safe in every way.
Many organisations have urged the World Health Assembly, which is meeting on the sidelines of the World Economic Conference, to move quickly and pass a global resolution regulating a wide range of folic acid-containing foods.
According to Dr. Vijay Conchrela of the Emory Institute, just 25% of the world's population has access to folic acid. Folic acid prevents against the dreadful disease spina bifida and can help youngsters all around the world with scalp problems. He believes that a worldwide resolve and effort can benefit the entire world. It will also aid in the achievement of UN objectives or the SGD.
