One of the most frequently diagnosed cancer these days is colorectal cancer. Each year, there are around 95,000 new cases of colon cancer and 40,000 new cases of rectal cancer in the United States. Almost all of the patients that are diagnosed with this type of cancer, die at the end.
The reason for this is almost always the fact that conventional treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy aren’t always successful with all the types of cancer. Except that, they also have a lot of side effects.
There was a study made by some American Scientists, in the Cancer Research Journal at the University of Adelaide, which showed that the lauric acid contained in coconut oil has cancer-killing properties. In just 2 days period this component exterminated 90 percent of the cancer cells. all those experiments were performed into a Petri dish, under hermetic conditions and were not carried out on a living organism.
But the lack of financial means has prevented further studies about the positive cancer – killing effects that coconut oil properties have. The main reason for that was that there has not been shown much interest by the pharmaceutical companies, who had obviously wanted to sell their products.
But, besides everything, the oil from coconut has a lot of other positive effects on our health. There was a lauric acid found in coconut oil, which was also component of breast milk, and it helped in strengthening the immunity.
According to some studies in the American Society for Nutrition, there has been shown that coconut oil can protect you from a lot of other diseases and it can cure them as well. It has been also proven to be particularly useful in the cases of osteoporosis, viral diseases (for example, hepatitis C, herpes), gallbladder infections, Alzheimer’s, chronic illnesses and cancer.
Coconut oil also helps to mitigate the side effects of chemotherapy.
So, it turns out that coconut oil is very useful and it is also a silver bullet in combating different types of diseases. It is even popular as skin blemishes remedy in the cosmetics industry. In addition, there are a lot of women in the world that swear by the ultimate effect it has on making hair silky and shiny.
