Latest statistics show that colon cancer has become one of the most common cancer types around the world, affecting both men and women equally. This dreadful disease is taking more lives every year and modern medicine doesn’t seem to be anywhere near a cure yet. However, a group of researchers stumbled upon an amazing discovery that left them shocked and in disbelief. They discovered that coconut oil can kill 93% of colon cancer cells in just 2 days!
The researchers that conducted the study from the Adelaide University of Australia, found that lauric acid, which makes up 50% of coconut oil, can destroy more than 93% of colon cancer cells in humans in only 48 hours. The study involved in vitro experiments in petri dishes, as well as in vivo in rats. Both experiments gave the same results.
The study found that lauric acid destroys cancer cells while causing oxidative stress. This significantly reduces the level of glutathione, which cancer cells depend on.
The real problem is that research of this kind is enormously expensive and unappealing to sponsors because natural cures can’t be patented. This simply holds no interest to pharmaceuticals companies to finance such trials, despite the fact that they target the wellbeing of the entire population.
Lauric acid, which is also found in mother’s milk, is a fatty acid that strengthens the immune system and has strong anti-bacterial properties.
Coconut oil has also been proved to reduce the side-effects of chemotherapy and improve overall health of cancer patients.
In the 1960’s, food manufacturers wanted consumers to buy their margarine and hydrogenated oils. Thus, they had to harm the reputation of the products people had always used in their homes to prepare their food. It was said that coconut oil caused health problems, while it was its replacements that were the real problems.
- Many medical experts and researchers don’t think coconut oil is the natural remedy for cancer, but all the scientists who work in this field should know that Nature has provided many tools to fight this terrible and dangerous disease. This means that we should invest more in the medical researches and studies of these natural remedies.
