Dietary folate is found in leafy green vegetables, chick peas and lentils. Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate found in many supplements that may increase your risk of colon cancer and other cancers. Try to avoid folic acid in supplements and choose supplements with natural Folate or Folinic Acid.
