Coconut Oil Is ‘Pure Poison,’ Harvard Professor Claims

Harvard professor slams coconut oil as ‘pure poison Modal Trigger Shutterstock

Speaking about it, she said, among other things that 'coconut oil is pure poison, ' and it is one of the worst foods one can eat. "When we're talking about coconut oil, this is a fat". In the lecture, Michels clearly states that the favorite superfood oil is not actually healthy at all and revealed that no scientific study proved that it is healthy. The American Heart Association advises against high consumption of saturated fats due to their association with cardiovascular disease - still the leading global cause of death at 17.3 million per year.

The professor said the oil is worse than lard - made from pig fat - yet 70% of Americans believed it to be one of the healthiest oils available.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) says there is not enough good-quality research to provide a definitive answer as to whether coconut oil is better for you than other saturated fats.

Unfortunately, if you've been swapping butter out for it to keep you healthy during breakfast it turns out coconut oil is about a shocking 86 percent saturated fat - about a third more than butter, which is 52 percent. The people claiming coconut oil to be good for health point at the health of these populations in Polynesia, Sri Lanka and some parts of India.

Bennett, a successful child actor, claimed that he made almost $3 million in the five years before the alleged assault. TMZ published the texts , including one that reads: 'It wasn't raped but I was frozen.

In her talk, Michels dispels the myth that coconut oil is healthy by explaining that the oil poses a greater risk to heart health than lard, as it contains high levels of saturated fatty acids - a type of acid which can clog arteries.

In regards to other foods like acai and matcha that have also earned the prestigious title of "superfood", Karin nothing bad to say yet simply suggested that their claimed nutrients are most often "sufficiently supplied" in more accessible foods like carrots, cherries, and apricots. Just choose when to use coconut oil wisely. For people who do not have high cholesterol, that number should be under 10 percent.

The AHA found that replacing saturated fat intake with polyunsaturated vegetable oil greatly reduced the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, similar to the numbers achieved by prescribed drug treatment. Alice Lichtenstein, a Tufts University professor of nutrition science and policy who is vice chair of the federal government's dietary guidelines advisory committee, recently told The New York Times "there's virtually no data to support the hype". As the saying goes, the dose makes the poison - so if you do have a soft spot for coconut oil just take care not to overindulge.
