Drinking Milk Daily Fights Bowel Cancer

Children, please note – drinking milk everyday can keep bowel cancer at bay, says a new study. Researchers in New Zealand have carried out the study and found that children who drink half-a-pint of milk daily are 40% less likely to suffer bowel cancer as adults, the American Journal of Epidemiology reported.

According to them, milk has a powerful protective effect against cancer and the key to its anti-cancer effects lies in daily consumption over long periods. "Our results suggest daily consumption of milk in childhood may reduce bowel cancer incidence, possibly by the action of calcium," professor Brian Cox, who led the study, said.

In their study, the researchers discovered that the subjects were 40% less likely to suffer a tumour later in life if they had milk every day for six years or more.
