Folic acid occurs naturally in many foods, including broccoli, asparagus, chick peas and brown rice.

Folic acid is being tested to see if it can lower a woman’s risk of cervical cancer. A trial is looking at whether supplements can stop or delay the development of the disease in women infected with human papillomavirus or HPV, implicated in 99 per cent of cervical cancers.

The new trial follows research showing that women with high levels of folic acid have a lower risk of becoming HPV positive.

Folic acid, known as folate in its natural form, is one of the B-group of vitamins and is found naturally in small amounts in many foods, such as broccoli, asparagus, chickpeas and brown rice.

In the U.S.trial, women will take a daily supplement for a year to assess its protective effect.

Researchers believe low levels of the vitamin reduce the effectiveness of the immune system, increasing the risk of infection with HPV.

Comment from Leslie –

Yes, this is the whole point, – HPV is a virus – strengthening the immune system is the best way to beat any viral infection. Big Pharma is having a hey day off our bodies because of all the crap that we ingest – and are subjected to in our environment. Our bodies and immune system become fatigued – worn out if not given the proper vitamins/minerals.

HPV is treatable – so is Herpes – remember how hyped up that was years ago? And someday we will figure out how to treat cancer without destroying the rest of the body.

It seems to me that the food industry and Big Pharma are all in cohoots to make a bloody nickel off our ailing bodies.

This is a wake up call people – if you do not want mass vaccinations, forced medical care then start taking care of yourselves and eat healthy. Otherwise you will get sucked into a Kafakaesk system with no hopes of return. Just ask any Gardasil Mom – or daughter afflected with brain damage since receiving the vaccine.
