Folic Acid in Bread

So now the Government wants to put Folic Acid in bread. All the time and effort sorting out how to supplement our diet so that we get the proper amount of nutrients should be better spent on promoting a healthy and varied diet.

People – you can get all the nutrients you need by eating freshly prepared food, by eating a range of fruit, vegetables and meats (sorry veggies).

As long as we continue to peddle the magic bullet approach to food and nutrition then all we encourage is ignorance and laziness.

Folic Acid is naturally occuring in green leafy vegetables – how hard is it to prepare spinach for crying out loud?

And there is enough crap in commerical mass-producd bread as it is – for example: link

It's the same bloody principle that Bush approaches climate change with – "everything's screwed, but don't worry, technology will help us out".

It took thousands of years to develop the culinary knowledge we have lost in a generation – that's a horrific legacy for the future.
