Startling Study Reveals Connection Between C-Section Deliveries and Food Allergies In Children
6The accurate time of diagnosis
The study actually pointed out that the first time diagnosis of a food allergy among the children was 1.6 years. Some were even diagnosed within a few months whereas some received a diagnosis at 12.8 years of age. They also pinpointed various factors that put children at risk of food allergies which was the pulmonary and asthma issues.
7Other factors affecting the data
The extensive study served as strong evidence of the relation between the theory of vaginal microflora and the results which were not coincidental. Authors also observed that rates of breastfeeding, antibiotic consumption and nutrition also affected their data. However, the study pointed out more towards the association of birth type and development of the immune system in children post delivery.
8Cesarean deliveries delayed immune system development
According to June Blustein of New York University Wagner School who authored a study in c –section, “It has previously been implied that mode of delivery is a significant determinant of postpartum adaptation of the immune system,” the authors explain. “Cesarean delivery seems to delay and alter the development of the offspring’s immune system, subsequently increasing the risk of [allergic] disease[s].”
9Health problems linked to c-section
Other health problems linked to c section births were asthma, obesity, diabetes and chronic health issues. June further stated “To me, that evidence says that it is reasonable to believe that cesarean has the potential for long-term adverse health consequences for children.
10The procedure of C-section is altering human evolution
C-section births are increasing all around the world because more and more women are electing to undergo a caesarian delivery rather than face the pangs of childbirth. The benefits in medical terms are of course a lot and c-sections prevent fatalities for both mother and child. However, another study proved something very controversial. It says that c-section is changing human evolution.
