Vitamin A and birth defects

On the Vitamin A page, no mention is made of the link between high vitamin A intake during pregnancy and an increased rate of birth defects. This should be updated.

Dear Daveed
I will mention this to the people in charge of the site, but need to point out that I have always cautioned pregnant women NOT to take supplements with a high vit A content during pregnancy precisely for this reason. These articles can be accessed at 'Diet', 'Eating throughout life' and 'Pregnancy'.
Best regards
