New research helps debunk the theory that babies born by C-Section tend to be heavier than babies who enter the world via the birth canal.
A previous study linked Cesarean Sections to an increased risk for childhood obesity.
It's a finding confirmed in recent research from Brazil, until the scientists factored in birth weights and the mother's body mass index, smoking status and income levels.
The link between C-Sections and childhood obesity disappeared.
Researchers say it may be that obese women simply require C-Sections more often.
