Experts have suggested that a serve of yoghurt a day could help prevent breast cancer. Academics at Lancaster University in the UK found natural-based yoghurt contains milk with similar healthy lactose fermenting bacteria to the cultures found in the milk of breastfeeding mothers. The study found the healthy bacteria reduced the risk of breast cancer in mothers by 4.3 per cent for every year of breastfeeding, and suggests that yoghurt containing similar bacteria could be a “simple, inexpensive potential preventive remedy”, according to experts.
