I’m Coo-Coo for Coconuts

A long time ago, when wisdom ruled, coconut oil was in just about in everything you ate. What misfortune, since today, malleable Americans robotically condemn coconut oil because they were ‘told’ it was a saturated fat associated with blocked arteries. The truth is unrefined, raw coconut oil, a medium-chain fatty acid, does not negatively affect blood cholesterol, but actually protects against heart disease and a constellation of Western diseases.

What I consider most creepy is, using fear, Big Food Jerkonians intentionally urged a gullible population to embrace sinister hydrogenated vegetable oil, aka Trans fats. Other than injecting lard or tallow into your veins, hydrogenated oils are the most health-damaging, vile, dietary oils created my man’s self-serving attempts to upstage God. This illustrates how corrupt leadership and greed for the proliferation of degenerative disease and the inept health care system has taken part in trashing a patriotic nation’s entitlement of good health. We are the innocent victims of their appalling decisions fueled by the love of money. Sigh… Being American does not guarantee longer years. In fact, the United States has dropped from 24th in the world for life expectancy in 1999 to 49th in 2010. Critics say our alleged, best-in-the-world, most costly health care is the primary cause.

Virgin, unrefined coconut oil found in some groceries and all community health food stores is one of earth’s most remarkable, healing gifts. Its delicious fatty acids are rapidly converted in to energy rather than wiggly fat. Refined coconut oil, on the other hand, is unhealthy due to processing. Unlike processed grocery vegetable oils, coconut oil does not form harmful by-products when heated to normal cooking temperature.

Modern medical science has revealed veiled secrets regarding coconut oils numerous medicinal applications. Where coconut is abundance, in the South Pacific, natives enjoy remarkably good health, free from aches, pains and any degenerative disease such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes and arthritis. Health benefits of creamy coconut oil include hair and skin care. I use it as a shave cream and Sandi says my face looks like a baby’s bottom, which I trust is flattering. The diverse oil can be used for stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increase immunity, pesky toe fungus, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength. Phew, the list is too long. This is all attributed to its lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid and its antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial mojo. The only other source of lauric acids and medium-chain fatty acids in such concentrations is in sacred Mother’s Milk. Rich and creamy coconut milk is super nutritious and brims with fiber, vitamin C, folate, selenium, minerals, and electrolytes.

Called ‘the tree of life’, one-third of the planets inhabitants depend on coconut oil and milk for food. If coconut oil is so good, why have we vilified it? It is simple; money, politics, half truths, and misunderstanding. You see, according to Bruce Fife, author of, “The Coconut Miracle,” the soy bean industry carefully orchestrated a 1980’s smear campaign against the coconut oil industry to profit from on the public’s fear of saturated fats linked with heart disease. Immature rubbish in view of The Weston Price Foundation saying ‘unfermented’ soy contributes to thyroid disorder, especially in women, promotes kidney stones, weakens the immune system, and contributes to food allergies and digestive intolerances. Estrogen-like compounds in soy foods can lower sperm count according a Harvard School of Public Health at the 63rd Annual Meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. The report by Jorge Chavarro, MD, ScD, reinforce concerns that soy negatively affects male fertility and testosterone. Bummer!

Abandoning unhealthful lifestyles and reverting to real, natural foods helps reverse many Western diseases manifesting in our bodies through the highly refined, biased diet of our modern society. You can do it.
