    Mice That Eat Yogurt Have Larger Testicles

    Probiotics may endow rodents with a "mouse swagger"
    By Elie Dolgin on May 1, 2012


    Last summer a team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology set out to better understand the effects of yogurt on obesity. They were following up on the results of a long-term study from the Harvard School of Public Health that had suggested yogurt, more than any other food, helped to prevent age-related weight gain. The M.I.T. team, led by cancer biologist Susan Erdman and evolutionary geneticist Eric Alm, wanted to replicate the work in mice. The researchers took a group of 40 males and 40 females and either fed the animals a high-fat, low-fiber, low-nutrient diet meant to mimic junk food or fed them standard mouse meals. They then supple*mented half of each diet group with vanilla-flavored yogurt.

    Their goal was to understand how a probiotic diet affects rates of obesity and its related compli*ca*tions, including cancer. But “the most entertaining aspects of all this were things we didn’t anticipate,” Erdman says.

    First, the scientists noticed that the yogurt-eating mice were incredibly shiny. Using both traditional histology techniques and cosmetic rating scales, the researchers showed that these animals had 10 times the active follicle density of other mice, resulting in luxuriantly silky fur.

    Then the researchers spotted some*thing particular about the males: they projected their testes outward, which endowed them with a certain “mouse swagger,” Erdman says. On measuring the males, they found that the testicles of the yogurt consumers were about 5 percent heavier than those of mice fed typical diets alone and around 15 percent heavier than those of junk-eating males.
    More important, that masculinity pays off. In mating experiments, yogurt-eating males inseminated their partners faster and produced more offspring than control mice. Conversely, females that ate the yogurt diets gave birth to larger litters and weaned those pups with greater success. Reflecting on their unpublished results, Erdman and Alm think that the probiotic microbes in the yogurt help to make the animals leaner and healthier, which indirectly improves sexual machismo.

    The findings could have implications for human fertility. In ongoing work, a team led by Harvard nutritional epidemiologist Jorge Chavarro has looked at the association between yogurt intake and semen quality in men. “So far our preliminary findings are consistent with what they see in the mice,” Chavarro says

    I can honestly say after eating a container of triple zero with my protein for a few days, my balls seemed extra plump..lol Sounds odd but seriously. Didn't notice any hair growing back thou.. Or shininess.

    I'm not sure what country you are in

    but in the USA our cows are abused and fed corn as feed. there were 3 guys arrested in FL recently for animal cruelty for hitting the cows and forcing them into the vices to be milked. so i do not support the dairy industry at all.

    I'm a bit worried about these researchers. 'Mouse swagger'... sounds kinky

    Yogurt is a good source of probiotics but unless it's made from raw milk from grass fed raised cows - I wouldn't consume it.

    Commercial dairy comes from sick cows that are abused and pumped full of drugs.

    more bad news..

    even though the glycemic index is moderate only 15-20 on dairy, the insulin spike you get from it is 90-95!! that means dairy is just as bad as sugar when it comes to insulin spikes. i get it if you are bodybuilding and want to just get 'big and strong' but for health consuming dairy daily will lead to insulin resistance and insulin problems

    i see a lot of fat females eating yogurt every morning, and it isn't doing them any favors

    It makes me gassy but I eat it anyways. It tastes good and is a healthy supplement to things like sour cream?

    It it makes you gassy that's a red flag that your body is not digesting it properly.

    Eating foods you have a food sensitivity to is going to cause a lot of inflammation and GI issues.
