Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer mortality in America. Unfortunately, most people with colon cancer do not have any symptoms in the early stages of the disease making them much more susceptible to it.
Although this cancer is responsible for thousands of deaths every year, it is highly treatable if you catch it in the early stages.
There is hope!
There is a reason that cultures around the world have been using it for thousands of years. The benefits of coconut oil have filled entire books. There are very good reasons for this!
According to one study conducted by the Adelaide University of Australia, researchers have found that lauric acid, a saturated fat found in coconut oil, was able to destroy 93% of the colon cancer cells that it was tested on, over a 48-hour period. Making coconut oil a promising alternative treatment to colon cancer.
Both in-vitro and in vivo studies have been conducted on the efficiency of lauric acid on cancer cells, and each one provided equal results.
Coconut oil has also been shown to help decrease the harmful side effects of chemotherapy and improve the quality of life for cancer patients.
The treasured oil has also been found to have benefits that exceed its cancer-killing properties, as multiple clinical studies conducted by the American Nutrition Association have shown.
According to the studies, the fats found in coconut oil “can be useful in the curing and prevention of conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, viral diseases (mononucleosis, hepatitis C, herpes etc.), biliary tract diseases, Chron’s disease, and cancer.”
Coconut oil’s health properties have long been demonized due to its high-fat content, however, the type of fat that it is made up of has led many experts to disregard this sentiment, and its use as an alternative treatment for cancer is still being studied.
