Coconut Oil: A New Cure for Colon Cancer


Colon cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States. It is also one of the most difficult ones to treat – often, patients are unaware of early warning signs of this disease or are not compliant with regular colonoscopies to visualize and diagnose possible cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions.

    Science gives high marks to avocados when it comes to protecting your heart and maintaining a healthy weight. The HASS Avocado Board commissioned a review of the studies on avocados and their nutrients.
    The review cites 125 studies and other sources supporting the actual and potential health properties of avocados. They contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals, fats, and phytochemicals.
    Avocado oil contains 71% monounsaturated fat, 13% polyunsaturated fat, and 16% saturated fat. As the avocado ripens, saturated fat decreases and monounsaturated fat increases.

    Eight preliminary clinical studies show that eating avocados helps support cardiovascular health.

    Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2001-2006 suggests that people who eat avocados have higher good HDL-cholesterol. They also have a lower risk of metabolic syndrome, and lower weight, BMI, and waist circumference.

    As the Hass researchers discovered, one avocado (about 136 g) is very similar in nutrient and phytochemical content to 1.5 ounces (42.5 g) of heart healthy tree nuts (almonds, pistachios, or walnuts) with less than half the calories.

    Avocados contain very little sugar compared to other fruits. Their glycemic load is close to zero. One avocado has about twice the potassium of a banana. Clinical studies suggest potassium may help control blood pressure. Avocados are also naturally very low in sodium.

    In one study 61 overweight or obese subjects were put on a weight loss plan. Half were also asked to substitute one and a half avocados (200 grams) every day for 30 grams of other fats such as margarine or oil. After six weeks both groups lost similar amounts of weight, body mass index (BMI) points, and percentage of body weight even though the avocado group was eating much more fat.

    It’s often touted that avocados and coconut oil will make you fat hence a lot of people avoid them.

    I’ve been eating one avocado a day for about five years now including at least one tablespoon of coconut oil and I have to say that I’m not fat at all weighing in at just over twelve stone.

    What I found most interesting was the fact that the avocado seed has amazing antioxidant properties and can actually be eaten.

    Having tried it this morning I found it initially tasted similar to hemp oil which has a nutty flavour but the meat was slightly bitter perhaps due to the avocado being slightly unripe.

    It’s not something I’ll do on a daily basis but perhaps once a week and with a fully ripe avocado.

    Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), the primary type of fat found within coconut oil, was found to boost cognitive performance in people suffering from memory disorders as serious as Alzheimer’s — and not after months or even days of treatment, but after a single 40 ml dose!

    The diet industry are full of bs. The fact that we gave up healthy fats for low fat, salt, and sugar too. They substituted us with poison. The brain needs fats. Healthy fats are essential. Hence the obesity pandemic, Aspartame, replaced sugar, oils replaced lard. Transfats are poisonous. Monosodium Glutamate replaced salt. We are eating chemicals in everything. A sure way to illness and Altsiemers. Just what the doctor ordered.
