No mention of whether or not they bothered to test these children for specific infections and used appropriate antibiotics. Yeah, I am sure a child who has no access to clean water or nutrition is probably susceptible to infection which may inhibit growth. Clear the infection and what nutrition they are getting will probably be better accessed. Did that occur to these researchers? Doesn't sound like it.

Wow! Less than an ounce of weight gained each month. That is an improvement over what???

Do they try to heal the gut once the antibiotics have wiped out everything?

Ha! They don't even do that in first world countries. I'm always amazed when I overhear pharmacists at the drugstore telling people that their antibiotic prescription might cause diarrhea, without even mentioning probiotics.

I guess clean water is old school, too.

I just realized that the FDA recently recommended that pharmaceutical companies label antibiotics to prohibit use in farm animals. So will third world children now provide a substitute market?
