Antibiotics can cause child obesity

According to a recent study by a team of Pediatricians, the report stated that children who intake medical drugs at the age of two, are more likely to suffer from obesity. These are just the findings yet and the reports are yet to be confirmed.

A team of researchers targeted the data of health records of children between 2001 and 2013. The data was collected of antibiotics that continued with the children in this period, until they reached 5 years of age. The team found that children who took two courses of antibiotics had little chances of being obese, than the ones who took four courses of prescribed drugs, till the age of five.

One of the professors of University of Pennsylvania – Charles Bailey mentioned in his comments; “We think after antibiotics some of the normal bacteria in our gut that are more efficient at nudging our weight in the right direction may be killed off and bacteria that nudge the metabolism in the wrong direction may be more active.”
