Probiotics and Breast Cancer

Progurt Team - Thursday, February 02, 2017

Besides fighting cancer directly, Probiotics might be possible to increase the abundance of beneficial bacteria at the expense of harmful ones, Dr Gregory Reid and his collaborators from the American Society for Microbiology reported.

The American Society for Microbiology is the largest single life science society, composed of over 47,000 scientists and health professionals. ASM's mission is to promote and advance the microbial sciences. The motivation for the research was the knowledge that breast cancer decreases with breast feeding, said Reid. “Since human milk contains beneficial bacteria, we wondered if they might be playing a role in lowering the risk of cancer. Or, could other bacterial types influence cancer formation in the mammary gland in women who had never lactated? To even explore the question, we needed first to show that bacteria are indeed present in breast tissue.” (They had showed that in earlier research.)

The full study is available online at: http://aem.asm.org/content/early/2016/06/06/AEM.01235-16.full.pdf+html.
