Bring on the asthma

Want your child to have a higher risk of asthma? Then be sure to load them up on antibiotics before their first birthday… Infants on antibiotics before their first birthday can have an increased risk of developing asthma, according to new research published in The Lancet. What antibiotics do is impair viral immunity and produce genetic anomalies that bring yet even more antibiotic use in early life and consequent higher risk for the development of asthma. Early life antibiotic prescriptions also bring the development of atopy, or allergic diseases. Just about any visit to the pediatrician can result in a prescription for antibiotics – and what’s a “responsible parent” to do but give that baby the medicine. This damning study found that children with wheezing who were treated with an antibiotic in the first year of life had double the chances to experience severe wheeze or asthma exacerbations and be hospitalized for asthma.
