Folic Acid
I have cancer in multiple places in the body. Uber chemo therapy at this point but also taking Vitamin B tablets which contain folic acid. Have read many for and against arguments of folic acid being good and bad for cancer and would like your views please.
Many thanks

Dear Paddy
You should discuss this with your oncologist - some chemotherapy medications are not compatable with Vit B1. Folic acid is usually beneficial.
