In America, colon cancer is the second leading cause of death due to cancer. The biggest problem with this type of cancer is that the symptoms start to manifest very late and people don`t notice anything in early stages.
Even though it causes thousands of deaths each year, this type of cancer is very treatable if caught on time.
The coconut oil can destroy most of the cancer cells in only 2 days. Coconut oil is getting more and more attention in the last couple of years, by scientists and the public. This oil has been used for thousands of years all around the world, because of its numerous health benefits.
The coconut oil is the richest source of fatty acids known to man, due to the high content of saturated fats- almost 90% of the fatty acids are saturated. These kind of acids are usually found in seeds and fish.
This oil was scientifically proven to help with the negative side-effects of chemotherapy and improve the life of cancer patients.
A study which was published in the Cancer Research journal claims that the lauric acid found in coconut oil has cancer-fighting properties. Almost 50% of the coconut oil is lauric acid and, according to the research team from the University of Adelaide, it completely destroyed more than 90% of colon cancer cells after only 2 days of treatment, during the in vitro experiment. Other studies have been quoted in order to support these findings.
Not only cancer cells, the lauric oil was found to be able to destroy any harmful pathogen in the human body. This study demonstrated how the lauric acid literally poisons the cancer cells by causing oxidative stress and reducing the levels of glutathione.
Many scientists will deny the findings as uncertain because the experiment was performed in vitro, meaning on cancer cells outside their normal biological system. But these experiments and researches cost lots of money and without the support of pharmaceutical companies, it will be very hard for any research team to perform them.
