A Bill to amend the Bread and Flour Regulations 1998 to require flour to be fortified with folic acid.
What are people's views on this? - Do we need to petition against this? - I understand that Folic Acid (vitamin B9 or M) can have an adverse effect on people's ability to absorb B12 into their bodies, which concerns me greatly, as this could be extremely bad for anyone with existing B12 deficiency levels; although I realise that many of us are probably already eating foods with this additive (quite probably without even realising it).
