"Our results suggest daily consumption of milk in childhood may reduce bowel cancer incidence, possibly by the action of calcium," the Daily Express quoted associate Professor Brian Cox, who led the research, as saying.

Experts believe calcium helps kill off cancer cells and accumulating a supply in the system can help to ward off the disease.

The team discovered pupils were 40 per cent less likely to suffer a tumor later in life if they had milk every day for six years or more.he study was published last week in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
