Is Your Child Being Developmentally Delayed By Antibiotics?

We all know that many things can delay a child’s development. Sometimes it seems miraculous that children develop at all. Now we can show that antibiotics delay the gut’s development, affecting the entire child.

We know that antibiotics disrupt gut bacteria, and we know that disrupted gut bacteria lead to adult illnesses. So the researchers were simply connecting the dots between antibiotic use and adult illnesses.

“Researchers demonstrated that an infant’s age could be predicted within 1.3 months based on the maturity of their gut bacteria. This finding could lead to a clinical test and interventions for children whose microbiome is developmentally delayed due to antibiotics”

The greatest difficulty will be in finding a group of children with untouched, completely functional gut bacteria to use as a control group.
