Antibiotics Can Lead to Obesity to Babies

According to the co-author Leonardo Trasande of the New York University School of Medicine who conducted a study which was published in the International Journal of Obesity on the links of antibiotics to babies who are younger than six (6) months and obesity, “We typically consider obesity an epidemic grounded in unhealthy diet and exercise, yet increasingly studies suggest it’s more complicated“.

He further stated that “Microbes in our intestines may play critical roles in how we absorb calories, and exposure to antibiotics, especially early in life, may kill off healthy bacteria that influence how we absorb nutrients into our bodies, and would otherwise keep us lean”.
