Abstract

The release of Australian research earlier this month showing that potentially millions of babies can be prevented from miscarriage and neural tube and other congenital defects, through dietary interventions, has prompted us to provide a brief report on these results in the hope that the early dissemination of this information can be used by family doctors to reduce the burden of congenital anomalies for regional children and their families. Currently and prior to these new research results, approximately 50 of all congenital anomalies have not been able to be linked to a specific cause, though there are known genetic, environmental and other risk factors for many such defects. We have provided the outline of this new research and a review of current knowledge in the hope that it provides some insights into unidentified causes.
