Colon cancer has a great take over the world. In America colon cancer is second most death causer. This type of cancer is very hard to detect because its symptoms are vague and without any conspicuous symptoms. For this reason, colon cancer is frequently detected in late stages and hence it is more difficult to be successfully treated.
We all know that early detection of the cancer is crucial for successful treatment, so any sign or symptom of its development should be given much attention. Common symptoms of colon cancer include bleeding with bowel movements, thin and watery stool, abdominal ache, bloating, and constant urge to have bowel movement when there is no need to have one.
Colon cancer can lead to many deaths per year, but if its detected early it can be highly treatable.
Coconut Oil Can Kill Colon Cancer Cells!
Coconut oil has been used for centuries by cultures around the world and lately it has started to get the attention it deserves in modern society as well. It’s beneficial in the treatment against a number of diseases making it one of the healthiest natural ingredients in the world.
Coconut oil is rich in healthy saturated fats, making it an excellent source of fatty acids, commonly found in fish and seeds. Almost 90% of the fatty acids in coconut oil are saturated which makes it one of the best sources of saturated fats found in nature.
Recent research have shown that coconut can help relieve the harmful side effects of chemotherapy, and improve the quality of life for cancer patients, which is why many recommend it as an additional treatment to chemo.
“According to a study published in the journal Cancer Research, the lauric acid in coconut oil has anti-cancer properties. Lauric acid constitutes about 50% of coconut oil, and researchers at the University of Adelaide discovered that it completely exterminated more than 90% of colon cancer cells after just two days of treatment in a colon cancer cell line in vitro. Researchers also cited other studies that support their findings.”
Coconut oil was found to not destroy the cancer cells only, but to eliminate other harmful pathogens present in the body as well. It was shown that the lauric acid found in coconut oil causes oxidative stress and reduces glutathione levels, resulting in elimination of cancer cells.
Many scientists will deny the findings as uncertain because the experiment was performed in vitro, meaning on cancer cells outside their normal biological system. But these experiments and researches cost lots of money and without the support of pharmaceutical companies, it will be very hard for any research team to perform them.
