Taking antibiotics during pregnancy increases risk for child becoming obese

18 noviembre 2014

A study just released by Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health found that children who were exposed to antibiotics in the second or third trimester of pregnancy had a higher risk of childhood obesity at age 7. The research also showed that for mothers who delivered their babies by a cesarean section, whether elective or non-elective, there was a higher risk for obesity in their offspring.
