Scientists warn mothers not to give birth by caesarean because it increases the risk of obesity

Scientists warn mothers to prevent being born with caesarean because it increases the risk of obesity and disease

  • Research shows that the first bacteria of newborns come into contact with the playing role
  • Lifelong health is determined when they pick up bacteria along the birth canal
  • Professor Tim Spector of the King & # 39; s College in London said that more awareness is needed

Mothers need to avoid caesarean sections because they increase the risk of childhood obesity and disease, scientists said.

Research shows that the first bacterial newborns come into contact with an important role in determining lifelong health.

Babies born naturally are exposed to a range of beneficial bacteria during the birth canal. But children who are freed by caesarean section are not exposed to these microbes, which puts them at risk for weight gain, asthma and immune disorders.

Professor Tim Spector, of King & # 39; s College London, said that more awareness is needed of the & # 39; disadvantages & # 39; of caesarean sections – which now make up a quarter of the births in Great Britain.

When he spoke at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists & # 39; conference in London, he said: & # 39; Every mammal gets its microbes when they pass through the birth canal. & # 39;

He said that obesity is not determined by calorie intake, but by these microbes, and adding: & # 39; The more different microbes you have in you, the healthier you are. & # 39;

Professor Tim Spector, of King & College London, said that more awareness is needed of the "downsides of caesarean sections" that now make up a quarter of the births in Britain
