This One Oil Knocks Out Cancer Cells Like Crazy!
One of the most common cancers, affecting both men and women, is colon cancer. There have been a good number of natural remedies and foods that have been linked to prevention, but there have not been many studies which show that these remedies kill cancer cells.
This is a common theme in the mainstream medical community. They are taught to believe only what the pharmaceutical industry tells them regarding the correct way to treat patients and conduct research. It is a tragedy that science today does not understand, nor does it accept, that our food is our medicine.
Luckily, there is other research, still published in reputable, peer-reviewed journals, that is significant enough to make even the most skeptical doctor sit up and take notice.
The perfect example of this is a recent study which has found an active, anti-cancer component in coconut oil. In fact, this component makes up 50 percent of this amazing oil. What is this amazing cancer killing compound? Lauric acid. In one study, published in the journal Cancer Research and conducted at the University of Adelaide, it was discovered that lauric acid killed more than 90 percent of the colon cancer cells after just two days of treatment. This study was conducted in vitro, but researchers reached the conclusion that lauric acid could also induce cancer cell death in clinical studies as well.
Another study conducted at the United Nations University, involving lab animals, also found that coconut oil protected the body from cancer cells.
Why is it that many in vitro studies never get past this stage and move onto clinical trials? This is because clinical trials are very expensive, making it difficult for those who are not involved in mainstream pharmaceutical research, to find funding. Pharmaceutical companies have little or no interest in funding these types of studies, as they would be able to make astronomical profits with a new drug that they could patent and market. In short, there is no money to be made investigating coconut oil.
The colon cancer killing compound in coconut oil, lauric acid, is also found in breast milk. This medium chain fatty acid has powerful antimicrobial compounds that help to support the immune system as well. Many researchers believe that raw, organic coconut oil is a true super food that can heal many diseases, including cancer.

The American Society for Nutrition has found in clinical studies that the fats in coconut oil can help to prevent and treat diabetes, herpes, hepatitis, gallbladder disease, cancer, and Crohn’s disease. This super oil has been found to decrease the side effects of chemotherapy, which helps improve the quality of life for those dealing with cancer.
There are so many potential cancer fighting and healing foods that is almost beyond belief. It is also heartbreaking that most pharmaceutical companies show absolutely no interest in funding these type of research projects simply because they can’t make money on them. More proof that pharmaceutical companies are not really interested in your health, only in their bottom line!
For example, one derivative of the wormwood plant, artemisinin, which is commonly used in Chinese medicine, has been found to kill several types of cancer cells at the amazing rate of 12,000 cancer cells to every single healthy cell. This study was published in Life Sciences, Cancer Letters, and Anticancer Drugs.
Still more interesting is bitter melon, and one study found that this food killed pancreatic cancer cells in tests done in vitro as well as studies involving mice. This study was conducted by researchers at the University of Colorado.
Of course, everyone is aware of the personal reports on social media sites such as Facebook where people all over the world are claiming that cannabis cured their cancer. Even the U.S. government admits in their own studies that cannabis can cure certain types of brain cancer!
The list of possible cancer cures goes on and on, but will we ever be able to conduct clinical trials? Who knows? In his final State of the Union address, President Obama stated that America should be the country that finds a cure for cancer. If only the president would back up those words with funding for companies and research projects!
