Yogurt Might Help Men Avoid Colon Cancer

We know yogurt can be good for you, but what about life saving?

A new study suggests yogurt can help men avoid Colon Cancer. “Men who had two or more servings of yogurt a week had a 26% lower risk of developing precancerous growths in their colon, a new study reports.” states  US NEWS.

Unfortunately researchers did not find the same cancer fighting benefits for women.

Yogurt is a fermented food which contains a lot of probiotic cultures that strengthen the digestive tract including Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus casei. 

Researches do warn the study doesn’t prove yogurt prevents colon cancer, but only that there appears to be an association.

“Specifically, the findings suggest that Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, two bacteria usually found in yogurt, may reduce cancer-causing chemicals in the colon.” states the article.
