B12 is NOT folic acid

The episode “Are alternative meats the key to a healthier life and planet” has an egregious error stated by presenter. She says “vitamin B12 is also known as folate or folic acid “ This is not true. Folate and Folic Acid are different forms of B9. Cobalamin is the alternative name for B12. This could have dangerous consequences because a listener might take folic acid thinking they are preventing B12 deficiency. You must correct this episode or remove it.

Great science for the layman

My favorite podcast for keeping up with what's new in science. It is presented in a way that is thorough and also accessible to the layman.
