Probiotics, so often recently added to food, it turns out, really very useful, as recent studies have shown. By definition WHOprobiotics are bacteria with antagonistic activity that provide normal microflora. Another benefit that experts had not previously realized was the ability of these microorganisms to reduce the harmful effects of radiation.
The study was conducted on cancer patientsthat suffered radiation therapy. Researchers divided all subjects, and there were several hundred, into two groups. One of them took a sufficient amount of foods with probiotics, the other did not. After the treatment, the health of the first group was significantly better than the second. This was especially true for those patients who suffered from diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, cancer of the prostate gland, cervix, as well as many other organs.
Thus, experts strongly recommend that patients with cancer who are about to undergo radiation therapy saturate their body with probiotics. The following information was published in the official test report: "As a result of radiation epithelium can be destroyed, which leads to the spread of bacteria throughout the body. The consequences of this spread can be the most deplorable, up to sepsis".
According to experts, probiotics are generally needed by all people, regardless of whether they have any disease or not. This can significantly reduce the risk. If a person has never consumed such products, then before radiation therapy this should begin to be done: this way you can help your body cope with difficulties.
Researchers also added that today there is every reason to believe that probiotics can reduce harm and side effects even when you receive a really large dose of radiation that exceeds the dose with radiation therapy. It was even suggested that those affected by the Fukushima accident would significantly help reduce the incidence and mortality of eating probiotic foods.
