Italians are known to have a high prevalence of SNP defects in the MTHFR gene which is a key enzyme for processing dietary folate to the active methylfolate form. A deficiency in methylfolate can induce a deficiency in vitamin B12 since methylfolate is used recycle spent B12 back to the active form.
