On the Sciblogs podcast this week we look at the debate heating up on folic acid and whether we should make it mandatory for bakers to put it in bread, to help prevent babies developing neural tube defects. We talk to the scientists about the latest science on folate and fortification as the Government seeks feedback from the public on the issue.
We talk to Sciblogger Dr John Pickering for making a $100 dialysis machine. Currently dialysis treatment costs up to $80,000 per patient per year. Why is it so expensive and how could the price be brought down.
And we hear the scientist behind needleless injections describe how he took the pointy end out of getting a jab.
PLUS, we wrap up the science papers making headlines this week.
