If you want to reduce your risk of bladder cancer, experts say eat yogurt.According to a new study out of Sweden, two servings of yogurt a day can reduce the risk of bladder cancer by 45 percent in women and 36 percent in men.

Other dairy products, though, did not provide the same benefit.

More research needs to be done, but experts say cultured milk products, like yogurt, contain lactic acid bacteria which have already been shown to suppress bladder cancer in rats.
