We all know that coconut oil is amazing for your hair and your skin; it is also an excellent alternative to vegetable or other cooking oils. What most people do not tell you is that is has an amazing effect on cancer!
Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers among both men and women. Cancer is way too common these days, and modern day treatment often gets you nowhere. In fact, chemotherapy is the most commonly used treatment for cancer and it has terrible side effects! Chemotherapy is often thought to be the worst part of the entire struggle of cancer. However many natural remedies have proven to be effective in treating many different types of cancers, they have always been shutdown by corporate pharma companies saying there isn’t enough evidence.
Thankfully, coconut oil has proven to be extremely effective on cancer. Coconut oil specifically works its magic on colorectal cancer. A great example comes from a study that shows there is an active anti-cancer component in coconut oil that constitutes 50 percent of its makeup. It’s called lauric acid, and in a study published in the journal Cancer Research, researchers at the University of Adelaide discovered this component completely exterminated more than 90 percent of colon cancer cells after just two days of treatment in a colon cancer cell line (CRC) in vitro.
The study also reports/cites studies that postulate and indeed support the position that lauric acid can induce cancer cell death both in vitro and in vivo. For this study, the researchers used the rat small intestinal cell line as a model of normal intestinal epithelial cells, which again, “demonstrated that lauric acid induced considerable cell death.” Although there is still much to learn, there is obviously some potential here.
