Harvard professor: Coconut oil is pure poison

Is saturated fat in coconut oil really that harmful

Furthermore, the Prof lamented that the oil contained saturated fat content which can even be linked to LDL (bad) cholesterol, as she raised concerns about calories in the oil explaining that 1 tablespoon of coconut oil has as many as 117 calories.

Karin Michels attacked the promotion of the oil as a healthy alternative in a lecture in Germany that has been watched almost a million times on YouTube.

A medical professor has branded coconut oil "pure poison" after research reveals its weighty amount of saturated fats. The bottom line is that while there is limited research about coconut oil's impact on the body-whether good or bad.

Coconut oil's rise to fame began after two studies by Columbia University which looked at medium-chain fatty acids, a type of fat present in coconuts.

While there are advertisements claiming coconut oil as a health food, there is little evidence to back that claim, said nutrition experts.

Coconut oil has been removed from AHA's list of healthy oil options which include the naturally occurring vegetable oils that are unhydrogenated such as Safflower, Canola, Olive oil, or Sunflower oil.

In the 50 minute speech, which has over 900,000 views at the time of writing, she details the dangers of overusing coconut oil. In comparison, beef drippings contain more than 60% of saturated fat.

Does coconut oil have some health benefits?

In the USA, coconut oil sales appear to have peaked in 2015 at $229 million, according to the market research firm Spins.

"It's not that you have to absolutely avoid coconut oil, but rather limit coconut oil to where you really need that special flavor, like for Thai food or for baking a special dessert", Willett said.

In recent years the coconut oil began to gain popularity.

"For the time being, if you like the taste of coconut oil, then, as with butter, it is fine to use it every now and then".

Saturated fats are the ones that tend to hang around in your arteries and lead to heart disease, according to health experts. "However, it is best to restrict yourself to small amounts and use unsaturated oils as an everyday choice instead".
