On Monday, February 25th 2008, Meera Dossa , a naturopathic doctor at The Pacific Wellness Institute, Toronto, was featured on Global News Ontario as part of their health segment. As Global was doing a story on the importance of folic acid, Dr. Dossa was approached to speak about the recommended dietary intake values and actual food sources of folic acid. Although it is common practice to supplement women in their child-bearing years with folic acid, Dr. Dossa also discussed other populations who are at risk and quantified what 400 mcg of folic acid, the daily recommended intake, would look like in terms of food. This segment later appeared on the 6 o’clock news.
