Untruths About Coconut Oil

Who put the kabash on coconut oil?
The many great uses of coconut oil and why movie popcorn was never again so tasty.

In 1994 movie theaters popped corn in coconut oil until the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture said it was too high in saturated fats and would lead to heart disease.

Soon after that, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) jumped in and said that a tub of popcorn popped with this oil nearly is twice the recommended daily allowance.

The death blow came and banned the oil from use in movie theater popcorn.  My popcorn never has been as satisfying in taste.

But, now it is known that certain “good” saturated fats like those in coconut oil do provide nutrients that protect the brain and CSPI reversed its position.

It happened because we weren’t consuming much in the way of corn and soybeans, most of which are biotech products.  The anti-saturated fat campaign according to John Ross Crooks ,who has done the research, points out it wasn’t only the CSPI but the World Health Organization, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, the USDA, and the FDA, all fighting against saturated fats.

Crooks states it was done for biotech interests.

Besides making popcorn taste better, this oil can:

l)  Be used to sooth body aches.

2)  Put a little in coffee to compliment the flavor.

3)  Cook with it.  It has a higher smoke point than other oils.

4)  Add a little baking soda to it for chemical-free tooth paste.

5)  It makes a fine hand cream.
