To the Editor: In their meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials of folic acid supplementation and risk of cardiovascular disease, Dr Bazzano and colleagues1 provided a clear description of their inclusion criteria and study selection process. Using multiple databases when searching for studies that meet meta-analysis inclusion criteria may help avoid selection bias.2 Failure to search multiple health databases can result in missing up to half of the relevant literature.3
