See below: Strong objective evidence for the effectiveness of probiotics is lacking. These are not likely to do harm and you may take these if it makes to feel better. You may consult this site for more information on this topic: http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/acidophilus/evidence/HRB-20058615 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.
