Élie Metchnikoff (1845 – 1916 a most distinguished Russian biologist, zoologist and protozoologist, best known for his pioneering research into the immune system) drank sour milk every day based on this theory.
"Mechnikov also developed a theory that aging is caused by toxic bacteria in the gut and that lactic acid could prolong life. Based on this theory, he drank sour milk every day. He wrote three books: Immunity in Infectious Diseases, The Nature of Man, and The Prolongation of Life: Optimistic Studies, the last of which, along with Metchnikoff's studies into the potential life-lengthening properties of lactic acid bacteria (Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus), inspired Japanese scientist Minoru Shirota to begin investigating a causal relationship between bacteria and good intestinal health, which eventually led to the worldwide marketing of kefir and other fermented milk drinks, or probiotics.
In honor of this great and illustrious researcher, The Russian Empire created the prestigious Mechnikov Medical Academy in St. Petersburg. One of the most prestigious institutions in the training of physicians and senior professionals in Russia.":

Back on the "Élie Metchnikoff" trail reading his "The Prolongation of Life: ..." by way of lactic acid. Had to note this:
"Soured milk, because of the lactic acid in it, can impede
the putrefaction of meat. In certain countries, accord-
ingly, meat is preserved in acid skimmed milk with the
result that putrefaction is prevented.":
