That’s a headline you don’t see every day.
The Scientific American reports that a recent study indicates that eating probiotic yogurt (the kind with bacteria that assist with digestion) has beneficial effects in mice. They become leaner and healthier. Their fur is thicker and more shiny. The males have larger testicles and more success at reproduction. The females have larger litters and do a better job weaning their young.
An earlier study suggested that mice that eat probiotic yogurt handle stress better.
I’m not exactly a mouse, but I might add something to my diet.
