Consuming more yogurt and fiber may protect against lung cancer development, a global study of nearly 1.5 million adults suggested.
After adjustment for various known risk factors, individuals who ate higher amounts of yogurt -- roughly 3 oz per day for men and 4 oz per day for women -- had 19% lower risk of lung cancer compared to non-yogurt eaters (HR 0.81, 95% CI 0.76-0.87). For fiber, people in the highest intake quintile had a 17% reduced lung cancer risk versus those in the lowest intake quintile (HR 0.83, 95% CI 0.76-0.91), reported researchers in JAMA Oncology.
