"(my daughter) found out that she had (an MTHFR mutation) from both sides of the family... I am in my 70's and feel for all of you as my ambition when young was to have a happy healthy family... Since finding out more about this condition I would like to help others to know that it also causes other problems among which are heart, stroke,and other blood related problems. Looking back on mine and my husbands family history that certainly bears this out! Everyone on my maternal side died of heart attack or stroke. His side all heart disease.You got this mutation from someone older and being the caring people you certainly would like your parents to know the dangers. Dr. rec. one baby asprin and 1 ml. folic acid taken at night (most h/a start early am). I am so surprised at the number of doctors and others in the medical field who do not know anything about this easy to remedy mutation, which is so potentionally dangerous. I am wondering if this doesn't cause cleft pallette and other birth defects! Couldn't some of you youngsters get this attention in the newspapers or on the TV news? You could possibly save many heataches and even little lives."
