• Why Coconut Oil, or Any Saturated Fat, Cannot Raise Cholesterol Levels (LDL levels)

    Scottish medical doctor, Malcolm Kendrick, has just written a brilliant expose on his blog explaining, scientifically, why it is impossible for saturated fats to raise LDL cholesterol levels. As I have written many times over the years, this is the kind of information that can save your life and help you make wise dietary choices, but it is information that the U.S. government, Big Pharma, and the corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media cannot afford to publish. Because to do so would be to admit guilt in one of the biggest medical scams of all time: the lipid theory of heart disease. This theory, which has been proven scientifically to be false, has been an economic success for cholesterol-lowering statin medical drugs, the most profitable class of medical drugs all time. This theory also promotes the low-fat diet which encourages consumption of carbohydrates from U.S. subsidized crops, as well as polyunsaturated oil, also derived from U.S. subsidized crops. This theory of heart disease, which condemns cholesterol and saturated fat, has probably been responsible for many millions of people's early deaths and the life-long suffering of autoimmune diseases for an entire generation.

    I always fight the mainstream mantras about cholesterol -- for example, don't eat eggs 'cuz they'll raise your cholesterol. This ignores the fact that the body makes ~75% of your cholesterol.
    But one statement by Dr Kendrick surprises / confuses me (since it comes from an expert):
    "For the experiment, the team recruited nearly one hundred volunteers, all aged over fifty. They were split into three groups and every day for four weeks each ate fifty grams of coconut oil (about two tablespoons), ..."

    I eat a lot of coconut oil (great in oatmeal) -- my container of coconut oil lists 1 tbsp as 14g. So, 50g would be almost 4 tbsp.

    So a typo (?) from an expert puzzles me.

    This is not likely a typo, since most consider the "therapeutic" dosage of coconut oil to be 3.5 tablespoons daily throughout the day. If you read the testimonials from those claiming it helps their Alzhemier's, some take up to 9 tablespoons a day.
