Camilla Urbaniak (left) and Dr. Gregor Reid (right) have provided evidence that bacteria may play a role in both the development and prevention of breast cancer.
Dr. Gregor Reid, a scientist at Lawson Health Research Institute, and his Western University PhD student, Camilla Urbaniak, have previously shown that live bacteria are present in the breast tissues of healthy women. This proves the existence of a breast tissue microbiome. In past studies, Reid and Urbaniak have also proven that human milk contains beneficial bacteria.
