Where in the genes is the spina bifida located?

Spina Bifida is not located in any gene. Spina bifida is not a genetically inherited disorder. There are people or families that are more likely to have a child with spina bifida because of their environment. They are more likely to eat certain foods than others because that's what their parents cooked and that's what they know how to cook or that's what they have to eat. Spina bifida is caused by a lack of folic acid (folate). Folate neutralizes valproic acid which is the biggest indicator for spina bifida. In other words, we don't know why but if there are higher than normal levels of valproic acid in your body in the first 15-26 days after conception, your chances of having a child with spina bifida go up. The only way to prevent it is for women of child bearing age to take a multivitamin with folate everyday even if they are not trying to conceive. Most women don't know they're pregnant when the defect occurs.
