Yoghurt: For Health, Life and Beauty

Yoghurt is believed to be an invention of the Bulgars from Central Asia. It still plays a major role in the Bulgarian diet. A study conducted by Russian scientist and biologist Illya Mechnikov in the 1900s found that the long average lifetime of the Bulgarians was due to the local yoghurt ( Lactus Bulgaricus ) being consumed in large quantities.
A new study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says that the potential attributes of yoghurt include the ability to make the immune system more resillent. This increase in resistance is due, in part, to the live and active cultures found in yoghurt. Yoghurt may prevent HIV infections. Brown University scientists in the US have genetically modified bacteria found in yoghurt to release a drug that blocks the virus HIV. As of now tests have only been conducted in the university and the laboratory but trials on human will soon begin, in fact already begun.
Yoghurt is an excellent option for those who are Lactose intolerant and cannot consume other milk products.
