You buy coconut oil, and you do not know this. You, in fact, buy poison
Although over the past years coconut oil has been listed on the SuperNorman list claiming to have health benefits, a Harvard professor warned of its harmful effect.
Dr Karin Michaels, a Harvard School of Public Health professor and director of the Institute for the Prevention and Epidemiology of Tumors, expressed an opinion on coconut oil during the lecture titled “Coconut oil and other nutritional errors”.
In a speech delivered at the University of Freiburg, Dr. Karin stressed that “coconut oil is one of the worst groceries you can consume” precisely because of the harmful effect of the sweetened fatty acids on your body.
Her presentation opposes the belief that coconut fruit is good for health. So far, this oil has been considered superfood, and experts around the world recommend it as a food item that should be used in preparing almost every meal.
According to Michaels, “the consumption of coconut oil is much more spicy than cooking pork fat,” because this oil is mostly composed of saturated fatty acids.
The National Health Service reports that the consumption of foods that contain mandatory fatty acids may increase the risk of developing coronary heart disease due to the increased level of bad cholesterol in the blood.
On the other hand, foods rich in healthy unsaturated fats are fatty fish, strong fruits, seeds, herbal oils and avocados.
