Cancer is the fifth leading cause of death worldwide. In countries like United States, Canada, Australia and Europe it is second only to heart disease as the most common cause of death. Governments are spending billions of dollars in the fight against cancer, yet the number of cases continues to increase.
No matter where you live and how old you are, cancerous cells form in our bodies all the time. If not protected by our immune system, which puts up a continuous battle against these deadly cells we would be suffering with cancer. A healthy and well-nourished body is essential to have a strong immune system, making it less susceptible to developing cancer.
For generations, red palm oil is been considered as both a nutritious food and valued medicine. Red palm oil is the richest source of polynutrients; it owes the majority of its antioxidant power to two very powerful cancer-fighting nutrients – tocotrienols and gamma- carotene, making it a very important cancer fighting food. Antioxidant enzymes and nutrients in our bodies block or stop the oxidizing reactions that create cancer cells. The right types of foods is essential for your body to have the protection it needs, palm oil is one of these cancer protective foods. Red palm oil, with its high saturated and monounsaturated fat content is very stable chemically, which helps block free-radical generation and preserve the body’s antioxidant defenses.

Addition of palm oil into the diet can reduce cancer risk and can help to prolong lifespan. It doesn’t matter if the primary fat in the diet is any other oil, when palm oil is added or replaces this other oil, incidences of cancer declines. Daily use of palm oil can help in preventing cancer or it can also be used to treat active cancer. The high nutrient content of red palm oil reduces the side effects often accompanied with a cancer treatment. Use of red palm oil with the cancer treatment can reduce excessive hair loss, nausea and other side effects commonly associated with radiation and chemotherapy. The antioxidant nutrients in the oil protect against these harmful effects and assist the treatment in boosting the immune system for the fight against cancer.
