This time it is folic acid. In a new study named “Folic Acid for the Prevention of Colorectal Adenomas,” which was published this month in the Journal of the American Medical Association it was found that high doses of folic acid did little to reduce precancerous colon polyps in those prone to them and may actually increase the risk of developing such growths.
Once again, like so many other studies the name of this study is misleading due to the inclusion of one word. ‘Prevention’. The participants in the study already had the condition that folic acid was supposed to prevent! How can you have a study about prevention when you are using people who are not representative of the general population?
This ‘principle’ is quite common in many studies in which the authors have already determined in advance what they want the results to be. Almost all the negative studies about natural products are as a result of using the specific ingredient on subjects who already have a disease or condition.
Natural ingredients are all about preventing the disease and/or condition in the first place, and then they should always be combined with compatible ingredients to maximize their efficacy.
So, if you see this study reported in your local media take it with a ‘grain of salt’.
