DDT, a pesticide that impairs fertility and can contribute to miscarriages, was banned in this country in 1972. But because it remains in soil for decades, and some countries still use it, DDT can still affect you through imported foods or foods grown in contaminated soil. Now, a study of Chinese women has found that getting adequate B vitamins can reduce DDT damage, enhancing fertility and viable pregnancies.

The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that a deficiency in any of the B vitamins poses a risk, and B12 and folic acid more so than the other B vitamins.
