Latest statistics show that colon cancer has become one of the most common cancer types around the world, affecting both men and women equally. This dreadful disease is taking more lives every year and modern medicine doesn’t seem to be anywhere near a cure yet. However, a group of researchers stumbled upon an amazing discovery that left them shocked and in disbelief. They discovered that coconut oil can kill 93% of colon cancer cells in just 2 days!
The researchers that conducted the study from the Adelaide University of Australia, found that lauric acid, which makes up 50% of coconut oil, can destroy more than 93% of colon cancer cells in humans in only 48 hours. The study involved in vitro experiments in petri dishes, as well as in vivo in rats. Both experiments gave the same results.
The study found that lauric acid destroys cancer cells while causing oxidative stress. This significantly reduces the level of glutathione, which cancer cells depend on.
The real problem is that research of this kind is enormously expensive and unappealing to sponsors because natural cures can’t be patented. This simply holds no interest to pharmaceuticals companies to finance such trials, despite the fact that they target the wellbeing of the entire population.
Lauric acid, which is also found in mother’s milk, is a fatty acid that strengthens the immune system and has strong anti-bacterial properties.
As found in the clinical studies of the American Nutrition Association, the fats 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 has also been proved to reduce the side-effects of chemotherapy and improve overall health of cancer patients.
The Once Demonized Source of Fat…
In the 1960’s the manufacturers of margarine and hydrogenated oils needed to find a way to convince the consumers to forgo the natural source of fat and start buying their product. In order to do so they started discrediting this long-used oil telling people that it causes health issues and numerous medical conditions, steering them towards their artificial fat sources. All the while, ignoring the fact that it was their trans-fat products which were to blame for the numerous health issues.
Although pharmaceutical companies turn a blind eye to natural remedies, one thing is indisputable – nature has a cure for almost any existing disease. The sad thing is that without medical research and approval, they remain unknown to people whose health depends on them.
