As if West Oakland residents didn't have enough to worry about, what with the cancer and all (see below), now their sperm could be ghastly, mutated wormy things. Actually, that goes for all of us.

Folate is most commonly found in liver, leafy green vegetables, and citrus fruits. So let's recap, West Oakland: eat lots of oranges, and try not to breathe.
