'Coconut Is Pure Poison' (Harvard Professor)
Business Insider ^ | August 20, 2018 | Valentina Resetarits

‘…During the lecture, titled "Coconut Oil and other Nutritional Errors," Karin Michels has made herself very clear with regard to dietary recommendations, and underlined that coconut oil is not healthy. Its superfood status had already come under scrutiny last year after the American Heart Association (AHA) updated its guidelines, which recommended that people avoid the saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil. Michels went a step further than to recommend avoiding the foodstuff, saying "coconut oil is pure poison" and "is one of the worst foods you can eat." There's no study showing significant health benefits to coconut-oil consumption. And, according to Michels, coconut oil is more dangerous than lard because it almost exclusively contains saturated fatty acids, ones that can clog the coronary arteries. You can identify fats that contain large quantities of saturated fatty acids by checking to see whether they remain solid at room temperature, as is the case with butter or lard…’

saturated fat in the diet (in the gut and stomach) do not magically make it into your bloodstream. the stomach wall and the intestinal lining are very ‘smart’ semi permeable membranes.

Any food I don't like is poison.

Anyone who's political opinions I don't like is a nazi.

The litany of arguments over diet are entertaining.

No one says, “stop eating crap, stop eating so much, and stop sitting on your butt”.

“Everything in moderation” just isn’t as exciting as saying “OMG KETO!!!”.

There is a youtube by a Dr. Eades. Talking about obsesity and the role of the fatty acid linlenoic acid, which is found in most vegetable oils but not much in cococnut oil.

Saturated fatty acids trigger the cell to quickly say I’ve had enough. Linlenoic acid acts like a super carb and the cell never triggers and will grow to enormous size.

He blames the obesity crisis on the introduction of vegetable oils and the move away from lard, beef tallow, coconut oil and palm oil.

Coconut water is the best rehydrater around. Full of electrolytes. Has even been used as emergency plasma in the jungles.

My mother was a 2 to 3 pack a day smoker for 61 years.

She died last Spring of lung cancer.

I defended her right to do what she wanted as an adult in an allegedly free country.

If that didn’t take her, something else would have.
