The US has an aggressive policy of fortifying food with folic acid, and requires that all flour, rice, pasta, cornmeal and other grain products are enriched with 140 μg folic acid per 100 g. Similar programs have been initiated in Canada and a number of countries in South America and the Middle East, but are unusual in Europe. One could speculate, therefore, that folic acid supplementation could be a major factor contributing to the perceived excess capecitabine toxicity noted in the US.

You are paying for this expertise use it not the opinion of a bunch of random people on the internet. Further more, if your Oncologist's office has a problem answering your questions I would seriously look at finding a new one you are the consumer here they work for you.
