Folic Acid Supplements Don't Affect Cancer Risk, Review Finds
Date:1/25/2013

cancer risk from folic acid supplementation were not confirmed by this meta-analysis," Clarke said. "It remains to be seen whether any beneficial or harmful effects on cancer incidence will eventually emerge with even longer treatment or follow-up."

In an accompanying commentary, Cornelia Ulrich, director of the National Center for Tumor Diseases and German Cancer Research Center, and Joshua Miller, from Rutgers University, said it's important to note that folate may protect against the development of cancer, but also cause existing cancer cells to grow.

This is particularly important, they added, because 1 percent to 4 percent of Americans exceed the tolerable daily limit for total folic acid intake (1 milligram per day) by consuming both fortified foods and supplements.
