Mothers’ Good Bacteria Protects Child From Asthma, Allergies

Submitted by Ashok Rao on Mon, 05/31/2010 - 05:44. Health Update

A research has said that infants delivered vaginally get protective
bacteria as they go through the birth canal.

According to Professor Patricia Conway, of the School of Biotechnology
and Biomolecular Sciences at the University of NSW, babies born by
surgical incision through the abdominal wall and uterus, however, are
more prone to asthma, allergic infections and virus as they miss out
on getting mothers' good bacteria.

Prof. Patricia said that the bacteria, left on the baby's skin, could
then colonize the intestine and help inoculate newborns against
hospital bugs.

Professor Conway stated that gut flora was also vital for originating
a balanced immune system.

"With a C-section, the newborn baby misses an opportunity to pick up a
lot of mum's good bacteria," she said.

She added, "This can have long-term health implications, as the
development of a good intestinal ecosystem is necessary for health and
immunity to allergies, from childhood right through to
adulthood." (With Inputs from Agencies)
