Now that we all know just how beneficial coconut oil can be, the only question is, just how should we be using it? What products are available? Natural, organic, virgin coconut oil provides all the benefits mentioned above because it contains all of the ingredients needed to provide them. Its major disadvantage may be that it is a solid substance at room temperature. Another choice to consider is fractionated coconut oil, which is a distilled version of the original. Fractionization allows the long-chain fatty acids contained in virgin coconut oil to solidify and be removed, leaving an ultra-light, odorless oil that will remain liquid at cooler temperatures. (this is called oil-pulling) This means that it will be more easily absorbed by the skin if you are considering using it topically.
Is it not right that if we altered the dietary guidelines, spread awareness to the public and reduced the number of obesity that other illnesses of Western society would also reduce as well? I consider this assumption as correct.
For the majority of people, it is a given that they know what a healthy diet consists of.

By January 2006, the United States FDA has finally required food products to indicate the amount of trans-fats, in their food labels. What is disturbing though is that today, over 40 percent of the products in supermarkets have trans-fats in them! What’s even worse is that even most grocery meats are also filled with pesticides, drugs, and hormones which all get transported to our bodies when we eat them!
Coconut oil, or copra oil, as it is sometimes called, is extracted from the kernel, or meat, of mature coconuts. It has a high fat content, but it is rather slow to oxidize, making it highly resistant to becoming rancid. Coconut oil, stored at temperatures of 75 degrees, will remain fresh and usable for up to six months.
Eat Fat, Lose Fat: The Healthy Alternative to Trans Fat by Mary Enig, Sally Fallon teaches a lot about the modern American diet and how we approach this low-fat craze and why “one size fits all” diets don’t work for all of us.
