Antibiotic Use in Infants Ups Risk for Childhood Obesity

According to the Danish National Birth Cohort study (Int J Obes [Lond]. 2011;35:522-529), children who were exposed to antibiotics in the first 6 months of life had an increased risk for overweight at age 7 years. However, it is not clear whether antibiotic exposure at an older age is related to subsequent increase in body mass.
Unless the kids are fed more Calories than they burn, there is no way that they are at higher risk for obesity.

Bulls**t research.
