Cesarean section deliveries already linked to an increased risk of childhood asthma may double the risk of preschool child obesity, U.S. researchers say. Dr. Susanna Huh of Childrens Hospital in Boston and colleagues said the study involved 1,255 mother-and-child pairs. A Cesarean section delivery was associated with a doubling in the odds of obesity by the time the child was age three, irrespective of birth weight and after taking maternal weight and several other influential factors into account.
