Research Shows Multi-Vitamins are Good for Pregnant Women

If you know someone who is pregnant, ask them if they are taking your multi-vitamins. That is because now more than ever, a study of more than a thousand children points to how important a little pill is every day for a child to be.

Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill say they have evidence from studying all those kids that shows a multi-vitamin reduces the chance of Neuroblastoma, the most common cancer among infants. The study found kids whose mothers took a multi-vitamin during pregnancy were 30% to 40% less likely to get the disease, because a multi-vitamin includes Folic Acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin A. The bottom line, if you are even thinking about getting pregnant, it is a good idea to put a multi-vitamin into your daily routine.
