    Default In Defense of Coconut Oil: Rebuttal to USA Today

    By now, I'm sure you've seen the USA Today article entitled, "Coconut oil isn't healthy. It's never been healthy". Fear-mongering, attention-grabbing headlines certainly sell copy, but do not make for evidence-informed, high quality science reporting. http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/def...ttal-usa-today

    I didn't read every footnote to check, but where are the studies in countries that have used coconut oil for centuries? Tropical Asia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Indonesia etc? I'm not aware that they are all dying like flies from heart disease. Saw part of a Nigella Lawson Christmas special the other day, where she was cooking with coconut oil. (NIgella is a very glamorous, popular British food writer). She said coconut oil is good for you, but "I'm sure next year they will tell us it's not". It's a common remark I've heard before, and shows how confused people are, with so much conflicting information.

    Count me as one of the confused ones. I don't know what to believe about coconut oil. Since I don't enjoy the taste of it, I just avoid it. While I don't like the taste of the oil, I love the taste of shredded coconut.
