Hydrocephalus and Spina bifida

Hydrocephalus (water in the head) or spina bifida (split spine) are two related illnesses caused majorly by lack of folic acid in the deities or bodies of mothers during pregnancy. This affects the unborn children, most times leading to hydrocephalus or spinabifida. Hydrocephalus means a build-up of fluid around the brain. The condition is caused by the inability of cerebrospinal fluid to the drain away into the bloodstream.
