    Was this study sponsored by the AVN? I'd like to know before I spend time reading the article. -

    Default Re: Giving babies antiboitics linked to obesity

    Is there anywhere in that which suggests children who need antibiotics shouldn't have them?

    It's interesting at least. Though I'm already hesitant to give anti-biotics unless absolutely necessary. Or taking them myself. (More so from an anti-b resistance pov though)

    The importance of a gut health is really undervalued. Antibiotics wipe the gut lining and destroy all good bacteria, which are essential for good health. I'm not superised that poor gut health is linked to obesity.

    It's interesting.
    However as others have said, doctors don't usually give out antibiotics willy nilly in young babies.

    No proof, just a theory.. not even worth mentioning.. I would focus more on the overuse of abs in developing resistance to superbugs and the fact we'll all be screwed soon. There is already strains of stds that can't be wiped out with abs... itchy stuff.

    Perhaps one day there will be a study on the link between irresponsible parents feeding their kids crap and obesity in kids...

    Thats just your theory!
    I'm going with the antibiotic theory. Cause it's been published so it has to be true. Even if there isn't a link between the two yet.
