Dr Gergor Reid went to Africa, to villages where many people had AIDS and he gave the sick people a probiotic containing Lactobacillus Rhamnosus and to his surprise the CD4 immune cell count of the 68 people with AIDS who took the probiotic, improved more than the control group of people, who only took a prescription drug antiviral therapy.

When scientists tested Rhamnosus on animals with colon cancer, they discovered the probiotic ‘significantly reduced tumour incidence, multiplicity and volume’, compared to the control animals (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27447122).

Interestingly, a large supermarket in Mullumbimby, now sells a Swedish style probiotic that contains not only Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, but several other beneficial bacteria, that have also shown helpful effects.
