Colon cancer is prevalent in both men and women and although there are a number of remedies that can help prevent its occurrence, health authorities report that there is not sufficient evidence to warrant the use of these natural treatments.

But according to a recent study, coconut oil has active anti-colon cancer properties. About half the oil’s composition can help fight colon cancer and the main active ingredient is lauric acid. This component kills over 90 percent of the carcinogenic cells that lead to colon cancer.

Due to the work of lauric acid, coconut oil has the following effects on cancer cells:

Lauric acid is a poison to cancer cells.

It stimulates oxidative stress to the body’s cells to release toxins from the body.

Lauric acid reduces glutathione levels of the carcinogenic cells.

This study was conducted by researchers in University of Adelaide and was published in the Cancer Research journal. The researchers discovered that colon cancer cells died after 2 days of in vitro and in vivo treatment in a colon cancer cell line.
