Ward off colds with yogurt - by Emily Main

Ward off colds with yogurt

Start bolstering your immune system for fall and winter by downing a cup of probiotic-rich yogurt every day. Those good bacteria strengthen your immunity and have been associated with a 42 percent lower risk of getting upper respiratory infections, such as colds. The strains of probiotics are found in fermented dairy products such as yogurt and kefir.  And while you're downing those, lay off the excess sugar, antibiotics, and stress, all of which can kill good bacteria in your gut and make you more susceptible to cold-weather ailments.

Here is another one of those items that we eat a lot of in my household.  Never knew that yogurt of all things could help prevent colds.  We eat quite a bit of it in my household which might be why we have yet to have gotten sick this year.  Oh boy maybe I should knock on some wood somewhere ;o)
