C-section babies more likely get become overweight, study says
May 28, 2013 (WLS) -- Babies born by Cesarean section may be more likely to become overweight as adults than children born naturally.
Researchers tracked more than 10,000 infants as they grew up and found that, at first, C-section babies had lower birth weights. However, by age 11, they were twice as likely to be obese than babies that had traveled through the birth canal.
The research is in the International Journal of Obesity..
