More Reasons for Folic Acid
Folic acid, a supplement well-known for helping women have healthier babies and promoting heart health, may have even more great health news up its sleeve. A new study from a medical center in Italy indicates that folic acid may be a key to fighting cancer of the throat.
The doctors were interested in studying how folic acid affects laryngeal leukoplakia because they had already discovered that people with this type of cancer had lower blood levels of folic acid than those people who did not have the cancer (this cancer results in precancerous lesions in the larynx, or voice box). What they found was that supplementing with folic acid stopped the precancerous spots from turning into cancer, and in some patients it disappeared completely. The study involved 43 people with laryngeal leukoplakia. The patients all had blood tests and were found to have low blood levels of folic acid. They were given folic acid for six months. The patients all took much more folic acid than is normal – five milligrams every eight hours. Their throat cancer was checked every 30 days, and at the end of the study the doctors found that in 12 of the patients the laryngeal leukoplakia disappeared, and in 19 of the patients the laryngeal leukoplakia shrank. The others had no change for better or worse. The patients were then studied for a year, and in three of the patients the laryngeal leukoplakia came back. Although the researchers are pleased, they say that more studies need to be done to find out why the folic acid worked as it did. They plan a larger, longer study of folic acid supplements in people with laryngeal leukoplakia.
