Today, colon cancer is among the most prevalent types of cancer afflicting both men and women.
Fortunately, there is a vast range of natural remedies that can help deal with these deadly disease, even though we still don’t have sufficient medical evidence to support these alternative treatments.

  The pharmaceutical companies have also been a major stumbling block, since they fund most of the scienctific studies in the field of medicine. Namely, these companies are driven by profits rather than human health.

Nonetheless, renowned medical journals have still managed to publish some important and beneficial studies.

One such study was conduced at the Adelaide University of Australia, and it revealed that lauric acid contained in coconut oil has the potential to destroy over 93% of colon cancer cells within only 48 hours.  This study involved in-vitro experiments in petri dishes, and in-vivo in rats, and both of the experiments returned the same results.

The study discovered that lauric acid destroys cancerous cells while causing oxidative stress. This substantially lowers the level of glutathione, which malignant cells depend on.

The major setback is that research of this kind is extremely costly and unappealing to sponsors, given the fact that you cannot patent natural cures.
Lauric acid, which is also present in breast milk, is a fatty acid with strong anti-bacterial properties, and it  strengthens the immune system.

According to the American Nutrition Association’s clinical studies, 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”.

In addition, coconut oil has  been proved to minimize the side-effects of chemotherapy and enhance the overall health of cancer patients.

Pharmaceutical companies may turn a blind eye to natural remedies, but they can’t change the fact that mother nature has a cure for virtually every existing disease. It is just sad that their benefits remain unknown to people who really need them, thanks to lack of medical research and approval.
