Health News: Childhood Antibiotic Use Linked With Obesity

On February 3, 2017 Preventdisease.com published an article written by Life Choice's founder and CEO Eldon Dahl, Doctorate of Natural Medicine, titled "Childhood Antibiotic Use Linked With Obesity"

The article begins by stating "last year, the American Gastroenterological Association published a study analyzing the effects of antibiotics taken before age 2 on obesity levels by age 4. They found that young children who had been exposed to antibiotics before age 2 had a 25 percent relative increase of being obese by age 4."

It continued by saying "the risk is strongest with 3 or more repeated courses of antibiotics. Frank Irving Scott, MD, MSCE, assistant professor of medicine at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Aurora, and adjunct scholar, Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, stated, "Antibiotics have been used to promote weight gain in livestock for several decades, and our research confirms that antibiotics have the same effect in humans. Our work supports the theory that antibiotics may progressively alter the composition and function of the gut microbiome, thereby predisposing children to obesity as is seen in livestock and animal models." "
