Taking antibiotics during pregnancy increases risk for child becoming obese -- ScienceDaily

A study just released by Columbia University's Mailman School of Public
Health found that children who were exposed to antibiotics in the second
or third trimester of pregnancy had a higher risk of childhood obesity
at age 7. The research also showed that for mothers who delivered their
babies by a cesarean section, whether elective or non-elective, there
was a higher risk for obesity in their offspring.
