Trendy coconut oil called poison

Coconut oil is 'pure poison', says Harvard professor
It was, she said, "one of the worst things you can eat".
During a lecture at a German university, Karin Michels said health claims surrounding coconut oil are "absolute nonsense". Professor Michels is not alone in slamming this oil, Dr Frank Sacks, who is a nutrition professor at the Harvard explained further, "Coconut oil is very high in saturated fat that raises your LDL cholesterol, which is a bad cholesterol". The bottom line is that while there is limited research about coconut oil's impact on the body-whether good or bad.
The reality is, one tablespoon of coconut oil adds up to more than 11 grams of saturated fats-the type of fat that is considered unhealthy.
Though often touted as a health food, there is no scientific evidence of the significant health benefits of coconut oil consumption.
When it comes to day-to-day cooking, experts suggest using olive oil, canola oil or soybean oil instead of coconut.
The invasion of coconut oil began in the early 2000s after two research scientists at Columbia University have shown the benefits of medium chain fatty acids found in coconuts.
"If you are eating Coconut Oil and using it to cook, you should consider getting your cholesterol checked", Segal said. Coconut oil could also be confused with other coconut-based products.
The reason for this is the fact that coconut oil contains a high content of saturated fat. "HDL is called the "good cholesterol" because it helps to keep cholesterol from building up in the arteries, while LDL is called the "bad cholesterol" because it's the main source of cholesterol build-up and blockage in the arteries, which can lead to heart attack and stroke".
"For the time being, if you like the taste of coconut oil, then, as with butter, it is fine to use it every now and then".
A report came out in recent days that coconut oil is, and I quote, "pure poison". "Coconut oil is better used on the skin rather than digested and can alternatively be used as an excellent moisturizer".
