Einstein in the News

U.S. News & World Report (via Healthday) interviews Peter Bernstein, M.D., about a new study that suggests folate may not reduce the risk of premature birth. The Norwegian study, which found no correlation between folate intake and a decrease in preterm births, contradicts previous studies showing that women taking folic acid reduced their risk by as much as 70 percent. While this new study is interesting, Dr. Bernstein still recommends all women take the recommended 400 mgs of folic acid daily. Dr. Bernstein is professor of clinical obstetrics & gynecology and women's health at Einstein and a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Montefiore Medical Center. (Friday, February 11, 2011)
