Mursik Causing cancer

With speculations from some group of people that mursik causes cancer, they are totally wrong. Health researchers are advising you to enjoy as much fermented milk as you can.

According to the new study they warn anyone to limit intake of sausages, alcohol, salami, and eggs.

The study that was conducted at the Kenyatta hospital proved that fermented milk
especially the Kalenjin famous Mursik does not cause cancer of the large intestines at all.
Some studies in the past posed that high intake of Mursik cause cancer of the digestive track especially in the Rift valley among the Kalenjin community. The study also stated that these products may help against diseases.
Fermented milk has been associated with the high presence of the bacteria Streptococcus infantarius (Sii) suspected to cause cancers of the digestive system. 
However, the study suggests fermented milk may interact with the suspect bacteria to protect consumers against tumors of the colon and rectum called colorectal cancer.
