Disinfectant Cleaners Could Be Making Children Obese
(Undated) — Certain antibacterial household cleaners could be contributing to childhood obesity. A new study out of Canada shows that when infants are exposed to certain products there is a change in the child’s gut bacteria that makes it harder for the baby to convert food to energy. Scientists at the Canadian Medical Association Journal report that children digest foods differently depending upon what sort of cleaning products are used in the house. They found that in homes where eco-friendly cleaning products were used, the children were less likely to be obese than their anti-microbial exposed counterparts.
