It is well known that gut bacteria play an important role in number of digestive and other related body metabolism even few research supports gut bacteria also play a key role in stress management and may affect obesity and diabetes like trouble.

Researcher from University of California - Los Angeles Health Sciences led a work which supports gut bacteria play an important role in prevention of few cancer types.

This interesting research works recently appears in journal PLOS ONE. Researcher isolated one of most common gut microbes named Lactobacillus johnsonii 465 which has few well know most common use apart from medicinal value like can make yoghurt and other fermented milk products. The strain of this bacteriam play an important role in reducing infection of inflammation which is almost related with cancer,

The team researcher used mice as sample animal having mutation in gene called ATM which make these mice susceptible for certain neurologic disorder ataxia telangiectasia which in turn associated with leukemia, lymphomas and other cancers, They divided theses mice in to two group which include one group is inserted by isolated gut bacteria and at the results mice having gut bacteria the lymphoma took significantly longer to form.

According to researcher, Robert Schiestl, professor of pathology, environmental health sciences and radiation oncology at UCLA and the study's senior author.

"Together, these findings lend credence to the notion that manipulating microbial composition could be used as an effective strategy to prevent or alleviate cancer susceptibility,"
