The American Cancer Societies National Cancer Education Committee, Inc. (ACS) recently released a new research study into coconut heart diseases and the ACS recently published an article in a cancer journal, The Cancer Journal, which found that coconut heart illness affects cancer rates and death rates, especially in the US.
According to ACS, a study that included the largest cohort of coconut heart sufferers from the USA found that those who were exposed to higher coconut heart heart disease rates and mortality rates had a 5-year mortality rate of 6.4% and a 5.5-year survival rate of 17.6%, respectively.
The researchers also noted that those with higher coconut oil consumption had a 7.6% and 5.7% mortality rate, respectively.
According a recent ACS press release, the findings indicate that exposure to coconut heart health problems could be a contributor to the risk of colon cancer, colon cancer-related deaths, and deaths from cancers of the lung, pancreas, urinary bladder, liver, and skin.
The new study found that the highest risk of coconut disease was among those who consumed coconut oil at least 10 times a week for five years, and the highest rate of coconut oil death was among people who were at least 40 years old, according to the release.
The study also found that people who reported the highest intake of coconut butter, coconut oil, and coconut oil products had a 4.4-fold higher mortality rate than those who did not.
The ACS noted that the study had limitations.
The authors did not collect data on the intake of dietary coconut products, so the causal relationship between coconut consumption and risk of cancer may not be completely clear, the researchers said.
Also, the risk was not associated with age or health status, so a higher risk may be due to differences in the consumption of different coconut products.
The findings of the ACS paper are interesting in light of the recent news about the American Lung Association (ALA) recommending coconut oil as a safe and effective alternative to tobacco, according a recent news article by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Dietary Supplements.
The ALA recommends the consumption and use of coconut oils for a range of health benefits.
A number of health studies have been published since the recommendation was issued.
One study found coconut oil to be superior to tobacco in the treatment of hypertension, a condition in which the heart and blood vessels become clogged with plaque, according the news release.
Another study showed that coconut oil could prevent colon cancer by inhibiting the production of toxins and reducing the ability of tumor cells to spread.
A third study found the consumption to be effective in the prevention of type 2 diabetes, a disorder in which blood sugar levels rise during a period of high blood pressure.
The American Heart Association (AHA) recently updated its Cancer Prevention Strategy to recommend coconut oil for its recommendations on preventing cancer.
In a statement, the AHA noted that coconut oils contain omega-3 fatty acids, and these fatty acids may be beneficial for many different types of cancer, including colon, breast, and prostate.
The AHA’s statement concluded: Cancer prevention is an important goal for us all.
However, we have been told that coconut products are a safe, healthy alternative to traditional tobacco and that we should avoid coconut oil.
This has led to misinformation about coconut oil and its potential benefits for cancer prevention.
Cancer Prevention: Coconut oil has been proven to be an effective cancer preventive, especially for colon cancer.
Coconut oil can reduce the formation of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and decrease the risk for lung cancer.
For this reason, it is recommended that people using coconut oil avoid consuming tobacco and should instead use coconut oil supplements.
Other Cancer Prevention Tips: Coconut oils contain vitamins A and E and other essential fatty acids.
Coconut is also high in essential fatty acid DHA, which may protect against cardiovascular disease, stroke, and cancer.
AHA Cancer Prevention Guidelines recommend coconut oils as an effective alternative for preventing cancer and other diseases.
