Here's a link to the letter to the editor that my friend and I submitted to the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition. The gist of it is that research, especially over the past 10 years or so, points to mechanisms explaining how a rise in folic acid intake could have caused increases in autism spectrum disorders and inattentive-type ADHD and that we would be prudent to consider using folate supplements that don't inhibit the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase the way folic acid does.

Update: All 50 of the free downloads from the publisher are already gone, so here's a 30-second slide show video I made from part of the letter and its supporting references.
