(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new study say babies born by C-section are more likely to be obese as adults than babies born naturally.
Researchers say most of the C-section babies they studied had lower birth weights.
But, by the time they were 11-years-old they were almost twice as likely to be overweight or obese compared to children born naturally.
Scientists believe this is due to C-section babies not being exposed to an important bacteria during birth.
