Saturated fats and heart health.
In June of 2017, he again directed a saturated fat warning for global media. The reason for this was the review of the American Heart Association, published in the Journal of Blood Circulation of Dietary Fat and Cardiovascular Disease. We have already mentioned this (coconut oil improves intestinal inflammation, section “Coconut oil in the main titles”).
The headlines said that coconut oil was bad for the heart or, in general, unhealthy and harmful. In circulation, however, this was not legible. Quite the contrary. It only existed that Overnight Lean Keto coconut oil compared to polyunsaturated fats could raise the level of cholesterol and, therefore, discouraged coconut oil. It is also clearly stated that one does not know how coconut oil affects cardiovascular risk because there are no clinical studies available.
Instead, two studies in particular were mentioned. One of them was from 1995 and was carried out with a huge capacity of up to 28 people. If we mention this study as evidence of this or that, it means that such an old study with a few participants was not representative.
The second study is that of 2016, which we have already mentioned in the previous text (coconut oil improves intestinal inflammation) as evidence of the safety of coconut oil. Because it says that the population of the countries of origin of the coconut has always consumed a large quantity of coconut products, without any adverse effects on cardiovascular health being noticed. The problem does not lie in the coconut itself, but in the rest of the food; This is quite different for people who eat a lot of coconut, among other things, from people in the western world.
