Neat Research Findings - Vitamins, pregnant rats, offspring


#1

I thought it was interesting, I wonder if any pregnant women would stay on a soylent diet? Also, above RDA vitamins affecting offspring in positive ways…

Interesting. This reminded me of a study I just read about in a class I’m taking. The study was from over a decade ago at Duke. Rats were given supplemented B12, folic acid, choline, and betaine. The rats produced offspring with different colored fur and a reduced susceptibility to obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
