Coconut oil is poison says Harvard professor

Coconut oil contains more than double the amount of saturated fat in lard Coconut oil contains more than double the amount of saturated fat in lardALAMY

Many health experts would agree coconut oil is fine occasionally.

However, a Harvard health professor has denounced coconut oil as a "pure poison" for its saturated fat content, which exceeds that of lard. On the contrary, it is "one of the most harmful foods you can eat". Many of them believe coconuts healthy fat, but even the American heart Association encourages people to use them with great caution.

But a number of health coaches, however, seem to disagree with this observation as Luke Coutinho took to Facebook to share his views about the aforementioned claim stating that "Any oil in excess, refined, wood churned, cold pressed, virgin will cause damage to the heart".

The YouTube video titled "Coconut Oil and Other Nutritional Errors" has successfully garnered the attention of more than 400,000 viewers.

Translated by Business Insider, Michels argues "coconut oil is more unsafe than lard because it nearly exclusively contains saturated fatty acids, ones that can clog the coronary arteries". Frank M. Sacks, Professor of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Senior Physician at Brigham & Womens' Hospital said in a statement to ABC News.

Their lawyer said if anybody is harmed with a gun made from the plans, Donald Trump will be responsible. Andy Reuss, a US Department of Justice spokesman, declined to comment.

The popularity and marketing of coconut oil may have obscured some important information about the fat and the variety of different labels can be confusing.

"I can only warn you urgently about the coconut oil".

For certain health food shops and well-being websites, coconut oil is the solution for everything from bad hair and grogginess to obesity and hemorrhoids. 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.

Most coconut oils that consumers buy in stores typically have 13% to 14% of the medium-chain triglyceride; therefore, people would have consume 150 grams or about 10 tablespoons a day to replicate the results.
