Date:3/15/2011

en aged 18-45 years conducted by March of Dimes® and Bayer found that nearly half of women (43 percent) are unaware of the health benefits of taking folate or folic acid daily. Further, 67 percent reported they do not take a supplement containing folate or folic acid daily, with more than half (52 percent) saying they don't take a supplement containing folic acid at all. The survey also found that women who were knowledgeable about folate were more likely than those who were not knowledgeable to ever take a supplement containing folate or folic acid (76 percent versus 32 percent).

"For more than a decade, March of Dimes® has been committed to educating women of reproductive age about the importance of folate and folic acid. We are thrilled that Bayer is joining us in these efforts through Girlfriends for Folate," said Janis Biermann, MS, senior vice president, education and health promotion, March of Dimes. "According to 2001 data, nearly half of all pregnancies in the U.S. are unplanned. If all women planning or capable of becoming pregnant took the recommended amount of folate or folic acid before and during early pregnancy, it is estimated that up to 50 percent of NTDs could be prevented."  

If women have questions about folate or folic acid supplementation, they should speak with their healthcare provider.

Bayer Gives Back with Exciting National GFF CompetitionGirlfriends for Folate kicks off with a national competition to identify the U.S. region with the most "GFFs." Women can join the GFF movement by registering at www.GirlfriendsforFolate.com. For every woman who becomes a GFF, Bayer will give $1, up to $25,000, to 2011 March of Dimes March for Babies®, the organization's largest fundraiser that raises funds to improve the health of babies. Through education, like raising awareness about the importance of folate and folic acid intake, and community programs, March
