DESCRIPTION: Though there have been more than a thousand papers published on coconut oil in medical journals, there is little evidence it helps with Alzheimer’s disease. The “shouted from every mountain top” argument is not entirely convincing. For example, we’ve known for decades that our #1 killer is preventable and reversible (see http://nutritionfacts.org/video/resuscitating-medicare/, http://nutritionfacts.org/video/our-number-one-killer-can-be-stopped/, and http://nutritionfacts.org/video/china-study-on-sudden-cardiac-death/), yet the medical community continues to rely more on drugs and surgery. Why? Well they likely weren’t taught clinical nutrition in medical school (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/medical-school-nutrition-education/), or after medical school (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/california-medical-association-tries-to-kill-nutrition-bill/), and the medical establishment has shown a disturbing inertia even when presented with convincing evidence (see http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-tomato-effect/). The difference is that coconut oil doesn’t have the data to back it up. What’s the potential downside of giving coconut oil a try? Find out in my next video Does Coconut Oil Clog Arteries? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-coconut-oil-clog-arteries/).
