Lactic Acid Bacteria

 
Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB)
Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) represent a heterogeneous group of microorganisms that are naturally present in many foods and possess a wide range of therapeutic properties – Science Direct.

Study: LAB have antitumor properties that inactivate or inhibit carcinogenic (cancer -causing) compounds in the gastrointestinal tract, stimulate the immune response, and reduce the enzymatic activity of β-glucuronidase, azoreductase, and nitroreductase, which are known to convert pre-carcinogens into carcinogens (Vamanu etal., 2006)… they prevent tumor cell via the activation of immunity by immune cells to fight with the tumor cells, delay the onset of tumor or increase the survival rate.
