Some analysis done every year, show that there are more than 95,000 new cases of colon cancer and 40,000 new cases of rectal cancer in the United States. Colorectal cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers ans it can be deadly.
Almost half the patients who get this diagnosis then die of it. This is due to, among other things, the fact that conventional treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy aren’t always successful with all cancer types. On top of that, they also have various side effects.
American Scientists have made a discovery in a published study in the Cancer Research Journal at the University of Adelaide that the lauric acid contained in coconut oil has cancer-killing properties.
In only two days, this component exterminated 90 percent of the cancer cells. The experiments were performed in a Petri dish, under hermetic conditions and were not carried out on a living organism.
Lack of financial resources prevented the scientists from performing studies on living organisms. In that case will be shown exactly how strong a cancer-killing property has coconut oil.
The reason for this is because pharmaceutical companies are not interested in financing this because this will probably reduce the huge profits they are making by selling their products.
But coconut oil has many other positive effects on health. The lauric acid found in coconut oil, which is actually also a component of breast milk, strengthens the immune system.
According to the American Society for Nutrition, several studies have shown that coconut oil protects you from other diseases and it can even cure them.
It has proven particularly useful with osteoporosis, viral diseases (for example, hepatitis C, herpes), gallbladder infections, Alzheimer’s, chronic illnesses and cancer. Furthermore, coconut oil helps to mitigate the side effects of chemotherapy.
So, coconut oil, as it turns out, is a silver bullet in combating various diseases. But even in the cosmetics industry, it is a popular remedy for skin blemishes. In addition, many women swear by the ultimate effect it has on making hair silky and shiny.
