A new study has found coconut oil may help you stop the spread of breast cancer and ovarian cancer, with coconut oil poppingeye and coconut butter a good choice.
The study, led by a team of researchers at the University of Southern California and published online Wednesday in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, tested coconut oil and coconut milk in three groups of people who had cancer or ovarian cancer.
They found that coconut oil appeared to have the same benefit for both cancers.
But coconut butter did not.
The research team looked at breast cancer patients, those diagnosed with breast cancer between 2013 and 2017, and those who had ovarian cancer from the late 1990s to mid-2000s.
Coconut oil, which has been used in traditional medicine since the 1960s, is a thick, white liquid that can be used as a condiment, topping sauces and flavoring.
Coconut oil can also be used to make tea and juice.
The researchers found that the coconut oil in coconut butter appeared to help in both cancers, especially ovarian cancer which was treated with a cancer drug.
In the cancer patients that were treated with coconut butter, the cancer-related death rates dropped by 50 percent.
The cancer-free patients in the coconut butter group also saw their cancer-causing antibodies, known as T-cells, drop, and the antibody-killing antibodies that were in the breast cancer group also dropped.
But coconut oil did not appear to help the ovarian cancer group.
The results suggest coconut oil is not the best cancer-fighting alternative to conventional therapy.
“Cocoa oil is the gold standard for treating ovarian cancer because it has so many benefits,” said study co-author Daniela Guillen, an assistant professor in the UCSD Department of Nutrition.
“It has been proven to reduce ovarian cancer cell growth, decrease T-cell proliferation, and increase T-Cell-derived tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), an anti-cancer drug that is also effective against ovarian cancer.”
Cocos canadensis oil, also known as oleander oil, is also an ingredient in popeye, a sweet and tangy popcorn with a creamy coconut filling.
It is also a staple ingredient in popular foods such as coconut water, coconut milk, and chocolate.
In the study, the researchers found coconut oils were most effective in preventing ovarian cancer when used in conjunction with chemotherapy.
The coconut oil, they found, also had the most benefit when used alone or in combination with chemotherapy, and coconut oil also had an antiangiogenic effect in combination.
Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and other beverages, including chocolate and tea, have coconut oil added as a sweetener to make them sweetener-free.
The company has said it is committed to reducing the use of sugar and refined sugar in its beverages.
Popeye is also made with coconut and is a popular snack for children.
The beverage has also been used as an ingredient for coloring chips and snacks.
The findings are likely to spark a conversation about how coconut oil can be an alternative to traditional cancer treatment, said Dr. Steven Gage, a professor in UC Davis School of Medicine.
He said it’s an issue for cancer patients to have cancer and for the public to have a better understanding of how cancer treatments work, and to see what coconut oil has to offer to patients.
Gage said he hopes coconut oil will become the first of its kind to be tested in humans.
He also said it may be a good idea for cancer-treatment centers to use ingredients from coconut and other plants, like cacao, which have been shown to be more effective than oil for inhibiting cancer growth and helping to protect against tumors.
