Antibiotic Use in Infants Causes Disease Later in Life

Interesting new datahappy_baby is linking antibiotic use in infants (a common practice) to allergies, infectious disease and autoimmune disease later in life.  Limiting overprescribing of antibiotics, paired with appropriate probiotic use in infants will help to prevent unnecessary suffering as children mature.  Fortunately today there are simple and effective lab tests available to look at the gut ecology in children and adults, to determine if there is an unhealthy alteration of gut bacteria, and what probiotics (if any) to use.

In health,
