    I don't know how many times we're going to have to revisit the issue of diet and heart disease.

    The stimulus for today's newsletter is a recent lecture by a Harvard professor calling coconut oil "pure poison" because it has one of the highest concentrations of saturated fat found in any food.1 Needless to say, it was picked up en masse by the news media that loved the dramatic headlines they were able to pull from it.
