Thousands of people in the US die from colon cancer every year. In fact colon cancer is the second type of cancer with the most mortalities.
This type of cancer is highly treatable if discovered early, but unfortunately most don’t have any of the symptoms in the early stages.
Coconut oil is one of the richest sources of saturated fat with almost 90% of the fatty acids in it being saturated. Besides being very beneficial for numerous other health conditions, coconut oil also decreases the harmful side effects of chemotherapy and improves the overall well being of patients.
Based on a research at the University of Adelaide, lauric acid which constitutes about 50% of the coconut oil’s fatty acids can completely exterminate more that 90% of colon cancer cells after only two days of treatment.
The luric acid has been praised as capable to exterminate any harmful pathogens in the human body. In this study, the luric acid actually poisoned cancer cells and unleashed tremendous oxidative stress, while at the same time reducing glutathione levels.
Because this experiment was performed on cells outside of their normal biological system due to the fact that performing more detailed research cost a lots of money, some discount this findings.
