Lack of folic acid in the human body can lead to abnormal red blood cells, increased immature cells, anemia and decreased white blood cells. Folic acid is an indispensable nutrient for fetal growth and development. Lack of folic acid in pregnant women may result in low birth weight, cleft lip and palate, and heart defects at birth.
