Reference: Salminen et. al. 2004. Influence of mode of delivery of gut microbiota composition in seven year old children. Gut 53 (9): 1388-1389 

Due to low gut bacteria diversity and imbalanced gut profile (dysbiosis), C-section has been associated with higher risks of asthma, allergies, inflammatory bowel diseases, obesity and type 1 diabetes in the long run. 2
