Coconut Oil

This statement was made by a Harvard Professor Karin Michels, who claims the oil to be a pure poison in one of her lecture videos posted around July. Is she correct in her claims? What’s the truth behind the statement?

Is Coconut Oil a Pure Poison? As told by a Harvard Professor!

Karin says, ‘It’s one of the worst foods that you can eat’, and also all the theories concerned with the oil are “absolute nonsense”.¬†

As per one survey made by the New York Time, almost 70% of the Americans believed that coconut is really good for the health. Whereas, only 37% of the nutritionists voted up for the oil.

This clearly showed that people may be not aware of the facts, and there’s confusion regarding it.

While Coconut oil is good for certain foods, still their long-term health benefits haven’t been proven yet.

On the other hand, the American Heart Association (AHA) Data mentioned that the coconut oil is not poison. This is because, almost 80% of the oil is in it’s saturated form – compared to the butter that has only 63%, pork lard which has a mere 39% only!

Another nutrition researcher from Cornell University stated that Coconut oil is not as bad as butter but it’s also not as good as the virgin oil.

Dr. Walter Willet, an epidemiologist at the Harvard T.H Chan School mentioned that Coconut oil is far better than the partially hydrogenated oils which are high on trans fat. But still, they are not as good as the unsaturated oils like the olive oil and the canola oil.

While AHA mentioned how the coconut oil is better on the skin than in the foods. They advise not to exceed the limit of 6% intake on the saturated fats. If the intake is not controlled properly, then it could increase the level of LDL which is one of the main reasons for cardiovascular diseases.

It’s important that you carry out a proper diagnosis of your body and take the right guidance on what to eat and what not to.
