Children Born In Cesarean Section Are Higher Risk To Obesity
Study on babies found that children born by cesarean-c section are at higher risk of becoming obese compared to children born naturally. Comparing naturally delivered children with cesarean delivered children, c-section babies-children becoming overweight or obese in childhood are 40% high.
Chances of cesarean babies-children becoming overweight or obese in childhood are more high if the mother was overweight or obese. An overweight mother is often associated with overweight or obese children, regardless of how the child is born, but the effect was stronger among women who delivered via cesarean section.
The researchers found that the difference is due to the beneficial microbes found in the birth canal that newborns are exposed to during a natural delivery and these microbes benefits child’s health, including enhancing metabolism and training the immune system.
