Maternal Nutrient Supplementation Counteracts Bisphenol A induced DNA Hypomethylation in Early Development
The average person may not be quite aware of the massive toxic load we are all exposed to on a daily basis (for a good scare, visit, (www.EWG.org). While we cannot eliminate our exposure, we can become cognizant and reduce our exposure as well as use diet and supplementation to mitigate the effects of this toxin exposure. In this mouse study, it was determined that Bisphenol A, a compound routinely found in plastics, damaged DNA. However, this damaged was avoided by folic acid supplementation.
So, the best combined effect would be to reduce exposure while taking a good quality prenatal with adequate levels of folic acid.
