Document Abstract:
Preventative medicine may make it possible to improve the quality of health in an ageing population and simultaneously alleviate the burden upon already stretched NHS resources. One simple, non-invasive and cost effective intervention would be to fortify bread with folic acid. This is an essential vitamin, often deficient in the population. Deficiency contributes to a number of preventable chronic diseases. This article provides a brief outline in favour of enrichment of bread with folic acid.
