A Harvard Prof Warns That Coconut Oil Is ‘Pure Poison’

Is it healthy?"While coconut oil isn't a superfood, it isn't inherently problematic either", she told Global News.
According to Michels, coconut oil is more risky than lard because it nearly exclusively contains saturated fatty acids, the kind that can clog the coronary arteries. On the other hand, foods that are high in unsaturated fat include oily fish, nuts, seeds, vegetable oils and avocados.
Coconut oil labeled 'pure poison' by Harvard professor
"It's not a hard topic, scientifically", said Frank Sacks, a professor of cardiovascular disease prevention at the Harvard School of Public Health and lead author of an AHA advisory on dietary fats released a year ago. "What makes it of interest is the nature of fatty acids in coconut oil".
The study participants who ate the medium-chain fatty acid diet burned fat quicker than the controls. Because of these experiments, the organization recommends that people keep their daily calories from saturated fats at 5 percent to 6 percent of their daily calories. It's important to know the different types of fat that we're looking at: "there's saturated fat, there's unsaturated fat, The unsaturated fat is what we consider heart healthy", explained Noel Konken, a clinical dietitian with Lee Health.
Coconut oil is 82 percent saturated fat, and this word of warning caused people all over the country to swear off their coconut oil smoothies and stir-fries. While the scientific world is still debating whether saturated fatty acids really are the work of the devil, others say with certainty that that's the case. "The overall effect has misled the public on the science of dietary fats". Indulging in a bit of coconut oil, of course, won't kill you.
It might be all downhill from here for coconut oil. However, most of the commercially available oil has a 13 to 14 percent MCT content, which means you'd have to eat 150 grams, or 10 tablespoons, of coconut oil a day to reap the benefits.
