I have recently been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and am about to start a course of chemotherapy.
I have just been given a diet sheet concerning the safety of food when the immune system is virtually knocked out by the chemo.
It recommends yoghurt, but then at the end of the sheet says you should not take probiotics or yoghurts such as Yakult or Actimel. I have never eaten either of the latter, and normally eat organic live yoghurt or kefir.
Does anyone know if it could be be dangerous to eat kefir while undergoing chemotherapy? I would far rather continue taking it.
