Coconut oil is as unhealthy as beef dripping and butter, say US heart experts.
Utter baloney. The 40 year old demonization of saturated fats has no doubt contributed to early demise and general impaired health of many people. The original study was funded by the sugar industry.
We all need some good quality LDL – it is the building block for steroid hormones. It is “particle” size that is important – VLDL (very low density lipo protein) is considered bad because it helps cholesterol build up on the walls of arteries. It is the high triglyceride content in VLDL that causes damage.
Cutting out sugar, fructose and pro-inflammatory omega 6 rich rubbish vegetables oils can have dramatic impact in helping conversion of VLDL to LDL.
Without a good amount of cholesterol we can’t convert sunlight to the vital pro-hormone called vitamin D3. Of course by virtue of slathering bodies with chemical sun block, many people don’t even get off the starting block in that respect. The “Sun” is bad for you is more health damaging baloney.
As with everything, the “quality” of what we knowingly ingest is important. I would only use organic cold pressed coconut oil, organic butter and other dairy products.
Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) – also known as the fat that makes you lose fat.
Sugar and all fake sugars (aspartame, Splenda et al) are one huge driving force in making the inhabitants of the so-called developed world obese, sick and stupid.
