A broccoli-based yogurt could prevent — and even treat — colon cancer, according to a new research.

Researchers in Singapore found that yogurt made with the 'superfood' killed 75 percent of tumors in mice, and more than 95 bowel cancer cells grown in a laboratory.

Broccoli - Chemical - Sulforane - Yogurt - Contains

Broccoli contains a cancer-fighting chemical called sulforane, while yogurt contains probiotics - bacteria that helps maintain a natural balance of organisms in the stomach and intestines.

Based on these findings, researchers believe broccoli-based yogurt is a 'disease busting formula' that can be used as cancer prevention and to get rid of remaining cells after surgical removal of tumors.

Aspect - Strategy - Lifestyle - Regimen - Matthew

'One exciting aspect of our strategy is that it just capitalizes on our lifestyle, potentially transforming our normal diet into a sustainable, low-cost therapeutic regimen,' said researcher Matthew Chang, professor at National University of Singapore.

Professor Matthew Chang and Dr Chun-Loong Ho engineered a harmless form of bacteria called E. coli Nissle, which is found in the gut.

Techniques - Surface - Bowel - Cancer - Cells

Using genetic techniques they developed it into a probiotic that attached to the surface of bowel cancer cells and secreted an enzyme to convert a substance found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables into a potent anti cancer agent.

In tests it killed almost all bowel cancer cells grown in a laboratory.

Combination - Yogurt - Veg - Percent - Tumors

Then, strikingly, the combination of yogurt and veg killed 75 percent of tumors in mice with the disease.

The tumors that were detected in the rodents were also three times smaller than in a group not fed the mixture.
