One excellent example of this exception comes from the University of Adelaide, Australia, where researchers have found that lauric acid (which makes up 50% of coconut oil) can destroys over 93% of colon cancer cells in humans, about 48 hours after treatment, according to The Raw Food World.
The Powerful Coconut
The potential of coconut oil to fight cancer has only recently been discovered, but its efficiency in the treatment of many diseases has long been known. An all-natural remedy, coconut oil is a real weapon against many viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites, but it is also good for your digestion, liver, and the healing of skin and wounds.
Coconut oil has also been recently used to treat patients with heart diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes.
