The American Cancer Society expects 95,270 new cases of colon cancer in America this year. The majority of these patients are treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery, all of which have notable side effects. However, imagine there was a more natural and safer treatment. Well, according to this study, researchers discovered completely natural and safe cure for cancer.
We are all aware of the health benefits of the coconut oil, and it is considered a super food by some people. Coconut oil has lauric acid which has anti-cancer properties and which is a component of breast milk. This medium-chain fatty acid stimulates the immune system and also has antimicrobial properties.
Coconut oil is basically anti-everything and pro-health. It is on the top of the list of foods which are anti-inflammatory and it also has antioxidant, anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-carcinogenic and anti-bacterial properties. It has the ability to control insulin levels and blood sugar levels, it reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, eliminates harmful fungi like candida, and it also helps in maintaining healthy weight.
Colon Cancer and Coconut Oil
According to a study which was issued in the Cancer Research journal, the lauric acid which is found in coconut oil possesses anti-cancer properties. Approximately 50% of the coconut oil is consisted of lauric acid and according to researchers from the University of Adelaide, it can eliminate more than 90% of all the cells of colon cancer in just two days. These researchers also added that there are other studies which corroborate their discovery.
Throughout the in vitro studies, the experiments are conducted in a petrie dish, or the procedures are performed in a controlled environment, which is outside of a living organism. The studies in which the researchers perform their procedures in living organism are called in vivo studies. The study about colon cancer and coconut oil was performed in vitro, and for this reason some people might reject the findings. Doing research is very costly and researchers find it hard to raise the necessary amount of money if they are not supported by a pharmaceutical company.
The American Society for Nutrition stated that clinical studies proved that the medium-chain fatty acids which are found in coconut oil are beneficial for preventing and treating diseases like cancer, Chrohn’s disease, gallbladder disease, virus related diseases (herpes, hepatitis C, mononucleosis, etc.) and osteoporosis. In previous studies, it was proven that coconut oil can reduce the side effects of chemo and can ameliorate life for cancer patients.
Further Research on Coconut Oil
The medium-chain fatty acids which are found in coconut oil are also beneficial for treating diabetes, drug resistant epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. When Dr. Mary Newport decided to give her husband coconut oil every day his condition drastically improved. Dr. Newport explained that the ketone bodies found in coconut oil aid the brain’s recovery following a loss of oxygen. They can also diminish cancerous tumors and can help the heart to recover following an acute attack.
