'Huge Breakthrough’: The everyday food item (PALM OIL) potentially causing 90% of CANCER Cases. Possibly the 21st Century's Biggest Killer.

CANCER diagnosis in the UK will increase to nearly half the population, a report has forecast. This pertains to roughly one out of two people will be told they have cancer at some point in their lives. A new study has potentially pinpointed a popular food item, most are consuming which is significantly causing cancer to spread in the body.

A study has found that when palmitic acid was supplemented into the diet of mice, mouth and skin cancers were more likely to spread. Palmitic acid, or PALM OIL has remained a controversial substance however this latest study shines a light on how it could be one of the main causes for the increase in Cancer diagnosis seen of late. A latest study published in the journal Nature has made a shocking discovery linking dietary fat and the spread of cancer. The study, part-funded by the UK charity Worldwide Cancer Research, found palmitic acid alters the cancer genome.

This in turn significantly increases the likelihood this cancer will spread. The study, part-funded by the UK charity Worldwide Cancer Research, found palmitic acid alters the cancer genome. The discovery has left researchers scrambling for a new therapy to help interrupt this process in the hopes it could stop the spread of cancer in a time where diagnoses have increased at alarming rates.

Acid found in palm oil linked to cancer spread, study suggests

The scientists have started developing therapies that interrupt this process and suggest a clinical trial could begin in the next couple of years.

The spread of cancer – metastasis – is the main cause of death in patients with the disease and the vast majority of people with metastatic cancer can only be treated, but not cured, researchers say.

Fatty acids are the building blocks of fat in our body and the food we eat.

Metastasis is promoted by fatty acids in the diet, but it has been unclear how this works and whether all fatty acids contribute to the spread of the disease.

I'm surprised that palm oil is used for cooking in the UK.

I would have thought rather sunflower oil (UK is a big importer from Ukraine) or olive oil.

But doubtless some clinical trial will establish that they are both bad for you if you drink more than 10 litres a day :D

Using Palm Oil is bad for the Planet and not just Humans ...

THE REASONS WHY PALM OIL IS SO CONTROVERSIAL

The increasing demand for palm oil is leading animals to extinction


To produce palm oil, the fruit is collected from the trees, which can live an average of 28 to 30 years.

However, once the trees grow too high, making it difficult to reach the fruit, they are cut down to make room for new trees - which contributes to deforestation of the rainforest.

To keep up with the incredibly high demand for the cheaply produced oil, acres of rainforest are being cut down - leading to a loss of animal habitat for endangered species.

In the past 16 years, the quest for palm oil has led to the death of an estimated 100,000 orangutans, according to research.

Other animals such as elephants, rhinos and tigers are also at risk due to deforestation.

Somethings likelihood to cause death by ingestion is called its LD 50

That's its Lethal dose in 50% of lab rats

The bigger the number the safer the product

So arsenic LD50 is 13mg/Kg

Coffie is 150mg per KG

Alcohol is 13 units (based on 40% proof) for a 75kg human, Water is 16ltrs

So basically everything can kill you if you do it in excess

It's not used directly for cooking, but is often a baking ingredient, especially in cheap cakes and biscuits instead of butter, lard, etc., and yes, we do use a lot of sunflower and other oils for domestic cooking and baking.

You have to be careful check the list of ingredients in your products like biscuits, chocolate and bread as, palm oil can be disguised under many alternative names, such as ‘palm stearine’ and ‘cetyl palmitate’, or sometimes insidiously hidden under the general term ‘vegetable oil’ as it is a type of vegetable oil .

You must check the likes of Warburtons and Allied Bakeries products (owner of Allinson, Burgen, Kingsmill and Sunblest) as they still use palm oil, as do Village Bakery, Robert’s, Hovis and many supermarket own brands such as Morrison’s and Tesco’s.

Why do they use it allows bread to stay soft and fresher on supermarket shelves for longer.

Palm oil is the only vegetable oil which acts in a similar to butter, with an almost 50/50 composition of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. It remains solid at room temperature, so is easy to bake with, and it’s very cheap too.

It's surprising to see how many products contain palm oil, unexpected products. I hope this is a wake up call and the public boycott items containing it. From my point of view, it will stop the relentless deforestation of the rain forests etc. Sadly, I think there will be little or no media scramble to highlight this.
