Antibiotics that kill gut bacteria also stop growth of new brain cells

Antibiotics
 
This is probably 100th post on Antibiotics from my wall. Reason I repeat it is to make parents and would-be parents aware about the long lasting impact.
 
We see out GUT as gutter and treat it like a slave.
We don’t care to control food habits of our children.
We hardly cook as per the science of cooking.
We eat more processed food then ever!
 
Result? Unforeseen impact.

Antibiotics strong enough to kill off gut bacteria can also stop the growth of new brain cells in the hippocampus, a section of the brain associated with memory, reports a study in mice published May 19 in Cell Reports. Researchers also uncovered a clue to why– a type of white blood cell seems to act as a communicator between the brain, the immune system, and the gut.
 
“We found prolonged antibiotic treatment might impact brain function,” says senior author Susanne Asu Wolf of the Max-Delbrueck-Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, Germany. “But probiotics and exercise can balance brain plasticity and should be considered as a real treatment option.”
