30 Jun An Important Message (RANT) On Coconut Oil
There has been a lot of RUBBISH in the media lately about coconut oil being labeled as unhealthy.
Particularly from the American Heart ASSociation.
…And I want to clear things up for you.
Here’s what our good friend and Health & Longevity mentor David ‘Avocado’ Wolfe has to say about this topic;
“Think about this: The American Heart Association has done nothing to stop the ravages of heart disease which is still the #1 killer of human beings in America even though, in 2015 they brought in $780,275,142 in donations and revenue to stop heart disease! They have recommended rancid vegetable oils instead of the dramatically more stable butter, ghee and coconut oil.
In Iceland, the people have survived on butter for 1000 years. Icelandic men live longer than any other men in Europe.
The American Heart Association actually recommends: corn oil, soybean oil, peanut oil and canola oil. These all contain high amounts of polyunsaturated fats. Unfortunately they are mostly omega 6 fats and not omega 3 and we require a balance of the two fatty acid groups (the ratio should be approximately 3 or 4 omega 6 molecules to every 1 omega 3 molecules). In addition, these oils are notoriously highly-processed, rancid, oxidized with poor quality omega 3 fatty acids.
The American Heart Association has fought hard to convince us that lowering bad LDL cholesterol is the best way to fight heart disease — when 50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol. Think about that! The justification that coconut oil is now “bad” for us is based entirely on the incorrect theory that bad cholesterol is the main cause of heart disease.
It appears that coconut oil has been giving the big corn oil, soybean oil, peanut oil and canola oil industries a run for their money, so an attack against coconut oil was inevitable. The first shots have been fired!
My recommendation: avoid rancid oils and use only real raw organic butter, ghee, olive oil, coconut oil, and hempseed oil along with fish/krill/algae oil (for your omega 3’s).”
David Wolfe is my number #1 go-to guy when it comes to nutrition education. He’s a personal friend, and I trust him 110% because he is genuine, he has no hidden agenda’s, and he is one of the best (if not, THE best) in the field of nutrition and longevity.
Here’s my personal take on the situation…
Just like Big Pharma, Big Agra, and Big Oil, the AMA are killing us (with the support of our governments).
Get educated, do your research, and fight back.
Don’t let these GREEDY corporations (and the politicians who’s pockets they are lining) get away with their dodgy practices at the expense of our children’s health and future.
We do not live in a democracy. We live in a corporatocracy!
All of the decisions made at the top of the pyramid are to keep these greedy corporations rich, and keep us down.
The level of corruption that happens at the government level is unimaginable.
YOU are worth more to these industries if you’re SICK, not healthy!
We MUST ALL be free thinkers. We must tap into our intuition, and we MUST NOT believe what the corrupt media tell us.
I will continue to use coconut oil on my skin, and in my frying pan.
I will continue to educate as many people as I can reach on the many health benefits of coconut oil.
And I will NEVER take the word of these deceitful industries who do not have you, me and our families best interests at heart.
Rant over… (that felt good) ;P
P.S. If you need more validation on the health benefits of coconut oil, (which I recommend you do), don’t just take my word for it, here are 4 more fantastic resources that I have used for years to to help me understand health and nutrition on a deeper level.
Dr. Joseph Mercola on Coconut Oil (5 min 45 sec)
Dr. Mark Hyman on Coconut Oil (7 mins 13 sec)
Dr. Bruce Fife on Coconut Oil (3 mins 35 sec)
Dr. Alexander Rinehart on Coconut Oil (3 mins 56 sec)
P.P.S. I’m actually happy that the AMA are trashing Coconut Oil, because it’s bringing awareness to how good it actually is, and bringing more light to the confusing subject of heart disease and cholesterol, which is widely misunderstood.
