Ways to use coconut oil

Coconut oil is pure poison’ Harvard professor’s claim goes viral on social media

Coconut oil is pure poison’ Harvard professor’s claim goes viral on social media

In the 50-minute lecture titled "Coconut Oil and Other Nutritional Errors", Michels, director of the Institute for Prevention and Tumor Epidemiology at the University of Freiburg and professor at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, said the much-beloved sweet-tasting oil is the worst thing you can put in your body.

Since, due to the higher presence of saturated fat in coconut oil, which tends to raise one's LDL cholesterol, also known as bad cholesterol. The AHA claimed that it can contribute to higher risk of heart diseases as it is full of saturated fat.

The reason for this is the fact that coconut oil contains a high content of saturated fat. Yes, that coconut oil.

Michels isn't the first person to debunk coconut oil's benefits.

"There has been speculation that some of the saturated fat present in coconut oil may be better for us than other saturated fats, but so far there is not enough good-quality research to provide us with a definitive answer".

Matt Smith Cast in Key Role for Star Wars: Episode IX!
After Matt Smith made the move from the TARDIS to Buckingham Palace, he's now heading for the galaxy far, far away. The news comes from Variety , citing unnamed sources, rather than Lucasfilm, so it's not an official announcement.

Live Science reports that AHA recommends keeping daily saturated fat intake at 5 to 6 percent, which translates to 13 grams in a 2,000-calorie diet. The nutrient is supposed to help you burn fat, kill harmful microorganisms, reduce hunger and protect skin, hair and teeth. A survey conducted in 2016 and published in the New York Times found that 72 percent of Americans think coconut oil is healthy, versus only 37 percent of the nutritionists that were polled.

Kevin Klatt, a molecular nutrition researcher at Cornell University who is studying the metabolic effects of coconut oil, told the news outlet that coconut oil was "probably not quite as "bad" as butter but not as good as extra virgin olive oil". How useful this oil is still under debate.

"This is ridiculous - coconut oil is NOT "pure poison"... or thousands of South Indians who use it in everyday cooking wouldn't be alive.

"Coconut oil is about 86% saturated fat, about one-third more saturated fat than butter", said Victoria Taylor, a senior dietician at the British Heart Foundation.
