Today the most frequently diagnosed cancers is the colorectal cancer. Only in the United States there are around 40.000 new cases of rectal cancer and around 95.000 new cases of colon cancer. Unfortunately more than half of those cases will end up fatal. That is because of the fact that chemotherapy and surgery are not 100% effective and that is the only bad thing about them – they can be the reason for numerous side effects which can only worsen the person’s condition.
And what was discovered that had cancer-killing abilities is the lauric acid that can be found in the coconut oil. This was discovered by American scientists and it was discovered that 90 percent of the cancer cells were destroyed by that component in just two days. The study was under hermetic conditions and they were performed in a Petri dish.
And further studies are needed to examine the cancer-killing abilities of coconut oil, but because of lack of financials that is not possible right now and the pharmaceutical companies do not want to help because they want to sell their products of course, and with this their profit will be lower.
But that is not the only health benefit that we can obtain from the coconut oil. It can even boost the immune system and the lauric acid besides in coconut oil it can be found in breast milk as well. The coconut oil has been tested in treating other health conditions such as Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, chronic illnesses, viral diseases (herpes, hepatitis C) and gallbladder infections, and it proved to be also effective.
To sum up, the coconut oil is a really effective alternative to the medications for treating different health problems, and not only that it can be good alternative for the pharmaceutical products, but it can be also be good alternative for the cosmetic products as well. For example the coconut oil is effective in making the hair shiny and silky and plus it is a wide-known remedy for skin blemishes.
