Study: Daycare may protect children from future stomach infections
from Globe and Mail
Kids starting daycare may be at increased risk of stomach bugs during the first year but then have few infections later on, according to researchers in the Netherlands. The results suggest that daycare may ultimately protect children from stomach infections over time. So-called acute gastroenteritis is an important cause of illness and doctor visits in developed countries, particularly among preschoolers in the winter, said senior author Marieke de Hoog of the University Medical Center Utrecht.
