In brief: NEC

The answer is no.
Although the exact etiology of necrotizing enterocolitis (nec) remains unknown, research suggests multiple factors - inefficient blood circulation; infectious agents like bacteria, viruses, and fungi; immaturity and dysfunction of the immune system. Regardless of the triggering mechanisms, the resultant outcome is significant inflammation of the intestinal tissues.
