An alternative treatment for cancer has come to light after various studies have found that it is able to effectively inhibit colon cancer.

New research has shown that coconut oil is a potential alternative to typical colon cancer treatment.

According to one study conducted by Adelaide University of Australia, researchers found that lauric acid, a saturated fat that is one of the main ingredients of coconut oil, was able to destroy 93% of colon cancer cells that it was tested on over a 48-hour period. This makes coconut oil a promising alternative treatment to colon cancer.

Both in vitro (in a petri dish) and in vivo (in rats) studies have been conducted on the efficacy of lauric acid on colon cancer cells, and each one provided equal results.

Several clinical studies done by the ANA showed that the fats in coconut oil can be of great use in the treatment and prevention of conditions like osteoporosis, viral diseases, cancer, diabetes, Chron’s disease, and osteoporosis.

Ty Bollinger, an advocate of alternative medicine and host of The Truth About Cancer, said that food manufacturers played an immense part in discrediting the actual benefits of the oil.

“In the 1960’s, food manufacturers wanted consumers to buy their margarines and hydrogenated oils,” Bollinger writes. “To do that, they had to ‘discredit’ the products people had always used in their homes to prepare their food.”

Bollinger goes on to explain how it was in fact coconut oil’s “replacements” that were causing all of the health problems that companies were accusing coconut oil of causing.

“It is the very goods the food manufacturers had been pushing on their consumers for thirty years,” Bollinger writes. “The trans-fats contained in these ‘fake foods’ were incredibly dangerous to your entire body. High fat, high sugar, and high carb diets were put under the microscope and found guilty.”

Although coconut oil’s health properties are often questioned due to it’s high fat content, the type of fat that it is made up of has led most experts to disregard this sentiment, and it’s use as an alternative treatment to cancer is still being studied.
