The acid constitutes about 50% of coconut oil and the researchers found out that it completely exterminated more than 90% of colon cancer cells after a 2-day treatment in colon cancer cell line in vitro. Other studies support their findings too.

The researchers during in vitro studies conduct experiments in a petrie dish, or perform the procedure in a controlled environment, outside of a living organism. In vivo studies are those studies where researchers perform the experiments on whole and living organisms. The coconut studies were performed in vitro that may cause some to discount the findings, however, researches cost lots of money and it is very hard for them to come by without a pharmaceutical company backing them.

The American Society of nutrition showed that the fats that can be found in coconut oil are useful in treating and preventing diseases like osteoporosis, virus-related diseases (herpes, hepatitis C, and mononucleosis), gallbladder diseases, Chron’s disease, and cancer. The coconut oil has been shown to decrease the harmful side effects of chemotherapy and improve the quality of life or cancer patients.
