Just as I thought mainstream medical, the American Medical Association, and the American Heart Association were starting to actually ‘get’ the fact that saturated fats do not cause heart disease and diabetes, and that sugar, processed carbohydrates, and vegetable oils do, they did an about face and the AHA (June, 2017) came out with this information:
Forty percent of women today are obese. Many believe obesity is a precursor to diabetes, which if not reversed will lead to further health complications, and even be life threatening.
However, a recent study looking at the effects of coconut oil on glycemia and inflammation demonstrated that obesity alone may not be the culprit.
White rice is far from a health food, the excessive consumption of which contributes to overweight, obesity and blood sugar disorders, but research indicates adding coconut oil while cooking it can dramatically alter its nutritional structure and function.
The way that a food will affect your blood sugar depends on a wide range of factors.
Is coconut oil a metabolism-boosting superfood or an artery-clogging threat to heart health?
That question has fueled a raging debate for many years, and it was reignited in mid-June when the American Heart Association (AHA) issued an advisory reiterating its longstanding recommendation to avoid saturated fats. Attention quickly focused on coconut oil, which has become trendy in natural health circles despite its high saturated fat content.

Your hair is bound to start graying as you grow older, and this is completely natural and inevitable. While hair grays for some people when they hit their 40s or 50s, some people experience premature hair graying during their 20s or 30s. While it’s not really possible to reverse any gray hair you may have back to its original color, you could care for your hair enough to possibly slow down the rate at which it grays.
Coconut oil is the world’s most weight loss friendly fat. It contains a unique combination of fatty acids with powerful effects on metabolism. Several studies show that just by adding coconut oil to your diet, you can lose fat, especially the “dangerous” fat in the abdominal cavity. Let me explain how that works…
The health ramifications of virgin coconut oil keep surfacing from international studies without much coverage from mainstream media health or food sections. Fortunately, Health Impact News and their CoconutOil.com website is the leading authority today on the health benefits of coconut oil, keeping you up-to-date on all the published research about coconut oil you will never read in the mainstream corporate media.
The first time I’d heard about adding oil and fat to coffee, I’m sure the look on my face was a mix between confusion and disgust. I mean, it’s not every day that you come across a drink containing coconut oil and butter! Especially in a society where we’re desperately trying to remove fat and calories from everything we consume. For me, this concept took some getting used to.
