ER physician Dr. Travis Stork shares that something he eats every day may also help to lower the risk of lung cancer.
A study from Vanderbilt University looked at 1.5 million people and found that those who eat yogurt every day, combined with eating a diet high in fiber, lowered their risk of lung cancer by 30 percent.
In addition to possibly helping to prevent lung cancer, The Doctors note that yogurt is full of protein, calcium, may lower blood pressure, helps to prevent type 2 diabetes, and contains important probiotics -- which keeps your healthy gut bacteria in place and flourishing.
Dr. Travis has previously said that yogurt is preferred way to get probiotics, but other foods that are rich in probiotics include:
