Eating Yogurt Reduces Bladder Cancer Risks
Eating two servings of yogurt a day significantly reduces the risk of developing bladder cancer, researchers in Sweden say.
Scientists said eating yogurt daily reduces the risk of developing bladder cancer by 45 percent in women and 36 percent in men. There was no similar benefit by eating other dairy products, The Daily Telegraph reported Saturday.
The Karolinska Institute followed 80,000 patients over nine years. Their findings were published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
