Abstract:

That the consumption of coconut oil result in elevated cholesterol levels is a myth. Coconut oil is equated with saturated fat without knowing that saturated fats in coconut oil are of the short chain and medium chain fatty acids. Recent researches show that the monolaurin found in coconut inhibits the viruses causing plaques in the arteries. Thus, ironically enough, avoiding coconut would only contribute to the increase of coronary heart disease. The major fat in mother’s milk is the same lauric acid as in coconut oil. If coconut oil is considered atherogenic and its use prohibited, then mother’s milk should also be considered so and prohibited too!
