Antibiotics during 1st months linked to obesity
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Giving children antibiotics in the first months of their lives could put them at risk for obesity, according to new research.
A study of more than 11,000 children found that babies who had antibiotics during their first five months were 22 percent more likely to be obese by the time they were 3 years old.
On the other hand, children who had antibiotics between 6 months and 2 years of age didn't have any increase in obesity. The study focused on British children.
