Colorectal cancer is one of the most prevalent forms of cancer among men and women, but although there are many natural remedies that prevent this disease, medical officials continue to believe that there is not enough research to support these facts.
Since science still dominates the pharmaceutical industry and the largest number of research is funded by pharmaceutical companies, they are mainly focused on financial gain, rather than on human health. However, this does not mean that they do not conduct great and important researches which are regularly published in prominent scientific journals.
Excellent example of this is from the University of Adelaide, Australia, where researchers found that lauric acid (which makes up 50 percent of coconut oil) destroys over 93 percent of colon cancer cells in humans in only 48 hours after treatment, according to The Raw Food World.
The powerful coconut
The potential of coconut oil to fight cancer has only recently been discovered, but its power in the treatment of many diseases has long been known. As a natural means, the coconut oil is a real remedy against many viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. It is good for digestion, liver, and skin as well as for wound healing.
Coconut oil has been recently used in the treatment of heart patients, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes.
The most intriguing thing is that the lauric acid poisons cancer cells by simultaneously causing oxidative stress, thereby significantly reducing the levels of glutathione, which is needed by the cancer cells as a protection against oxidative stress or excess of oxygen radicals. We know that cancer cell dwell in acidic environment and die out in alkaline and well oxidized environment.
Experiments were performed in vitro in Petri dishes, or in vivo in rats, showing the same effect.
Lauric acid is normally found in the breast milk, and is a fatty acid that supports the immune system and has antimicrobial properties.
Clinical studies of the American Society for Nutrition have shown that fat in coconut oil “may be useful in the treatment and prevention of conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, viral diseases (mononucleosis, hepatitis C, herpes, etc.), gall bladder disease, Crohn’s disease and cancer”.
It has been proven that coconut oil reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and improves quality of life of cancer patients. It is unfortunate that pharmaceutical companies do not want to fund further research on the miraculous effects of these natural compounds.
