Mouth bacteria in toddlers may predict obesity, study says

Bacteria in a toddler's mouth might help predict later obesity, new research suggests. Scientists at Penn State University found the composition of microorganisms in the mouths of 2-year-olds offers clues to the child's future weight.

Swabbing a child’s mouth for bacteria could predict how likely they are to become obese

A swab of a toddler’s mouth may predict their odds of growing into obese children, a new study suggests. Scientists at Pennsylvania State University discovered that the harmless microorganisms living in a two-year-old’s mouth were less diverse if they had gained more weight more quickly than most since birth.

Your Child's Mouth Could Reveal Their Obesity Risk

Scientists believe the bacteria that live in a toddler’s mouth could provide clues as to whether they will become obese. Existing research suggests the microbes inhabiting the guts and mouths of obese adults differ to those without the condition, but less is known about this pattern in children. So biologists at Pennsylvania State University set out to investigate what a child’s microbiota could say about their weight.

Child Weight Gain Trajectories Linked To Oral Microbiota Composition

Gut and oral microbiota perturbations have been observed in obese adults and adolescents; less is known about their influence on weight gain in young children.
