    (CNN)Children younger than two who are given antibiotics are more likely to have a number of ongoing illnesses or conditions later in life, a new study finds.
    Babies and toddlers who received one dose of antibiotics were more likely to have asthma, eczema, hay fever, food allergies, celiac disease, problems with weight and obesity and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder later in childhood, according to the study published Monday in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
    Multiple antibiotic treatments below the age of two was associated with a child having multiple conditions, the study found, with the illnesses differing due to the child's gender, age, type of medication, dose and number of doses.

    What a coincidence! I watched a programme called Searching for Superhuman last night which was on this very subject. So the information must have been around for a while, as it takes time to plan and make a documentary. The lady who used to live next door had kids with all these problems. They were all Caesarian births ( also discussed in the doc) and constantly needed antibiotics. The fact that they were allowed lots of sugary stuff probably had something to do with it too.
