Antibiotics trash children

Antibiotics are important medicines, but their excessive use leads to a large number of health threats.

According to a new study, greater use of antibiotics than it should lead to another problem - weight gain.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg have found that children who regularly use antibiotics during their childhood gain weight faster than those who do not, reports International Journal of Obesity.

Dr. Brian Schwartz, a professor at Bloomberg School and his team have analyzed data from more than 160,000 children between the ages of 3 and 18. They have accumulated weight and weight data to set the thickness index as well as the use of antibiotics by comparing year after year

The results showed that at age 15, children who had taken antibiotics seven or more times during their childhood weighed 1.5 kilograms more than those who had never taken antibiotics. About 21 percent of the participants, 30,000, have received antibiotics seven or more times during childhood.

Schwartz says these findings imply that thickness comes as a result of antibiotic use and it varies depending on how strong antibiotics are.

Scientists had previously reported this on the basis of animal testing.

According to the researchers, the reason for this is that antibiotics affect some microorganisms that live in the human body.

In the end, scientists say that this does not mean that antibiotics are not used, but only that grass makers should be more accurate in describing the drug they create.
