Infants delivered by caesarean section and those who do not breast-feed may not develop healthy gut bacteria needed to help regulate digestive and bowel functions and the immune system, Canadian researchers report. These microbes serve an important role in infants by "telling the immune cells not to overreact to certain bacteria but to react to others," said researcher Anita Kozyrskyj of the University of Alberta.
