File this one under, “really now?”
A small, preliminary study done at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children suggests that the month in which a child is born may affect their odds of becoming celiac.
Before you go about planning your next child, however, let’s take a closer look at the study. It’s worth noting that the study has not yet been published in a peer-review journal or confirmed by other similar studies, according to doctorslounge.com.
Taken at its highest level, the study indicates that children currently younger than 15 and born in the “light months” of March through August are slightly more likely to be celiac.
