US Doctor defends coconut oil

United States Doctor, Al Sears, has come to the defence of coconut oil which a Harvard University Professor recently described as ‘pure poison.’

Writing in his August 28th, 2018 newsletter ‘Doctor’s House Call’, Sears said that not long ago he overheard some of his staff talking about the American Heart Association’s latest dire warning about the ‘dangers of coconut oil’.

“This kind of misinformation makes me furious, especially coming from an organisation that sells itself on looking out for the public’s heart health,” he wrote.

“Once again the AHA is twisting the facts because of their ignorance of the science,” Sears declared in the newsletter.

He stated that numerous studies show that saturated fats like those found in coconut oil, butter and lard are good for your heart.

According to Sears, a recent study from the University of Cambridge in England found that coconut oil can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke when consumed every day for a month.

He noted that in the study, researchers followed 94 volunteers between the ages of 50 and 75, none of  whom had a history of heart disease.

“After four weeks of eating three tablespoons of coconut oil a day, participants had a 15% rise in healthy HDL levels, leading the scientists to report that this superfood can lower your risk of developing heart disease or stroke,” Sears observed.

“Another study looked at diabetes risk. It found that the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) in coconut oil significantly improve blood sugar levels and reduce insulin resistance. And lowering your risk of diabetes greatly improves your chance of avoiding a heart attack,” he wrote.

He explained that further studies have shown that coconut oil boosts brain function in people with Alzheimer’s disease, reduces inflammation and arthritis, prevents osteoporosis, protects the liver and improves body composition and weight in women.

“All in all, there have been more than 1,500 studies proving coconut oil to be one of the healthiest foods on earth,” Sears asserted.

He wrote that he recommends that his patients use coconut oil every day.

  1. If U want to be Good at Mathematics… Eat a Quarter of a Dry Coconut at Least Twice Weekly… Lol… Dry Coconuts was a Study Snack for Me in Both Primary n Secondary School… I did not even need Dr. Al Sears to tell that Dry Coconuts n Coconut Oil is Very Good for the Body n Brain… Lol…!!!

  2. How can you clump butter and lard with coconut oil? Butter and lard are toxic in more ways than one along with addictive casein and depriving calcium absorption they cause cancer according to the W.H.O. where as coconut oil is free of animal fats and proteins that greatly contribute to the top 15+ leading causes of death in our country. So do not compare butter and lard to a study done on coconut oil. They are nothing alike.

    • Depends on the butter cause the butter in the tin was the best it was called bear ka and the lard is great cause this is what my grandma use for out hair our body lotion and even when babies was teething she rub their gums

  3. Coconut oil is one of the best super foods that I’ve ever used, healed my body when conventional medicine didn’t,…….

  4. Its hilarious..i dont know how much this fake Harvard professor got paid for twisting facts..she has spat on her IQ..

  5. The professor from Harvard needs to come here in St. Lucia to do his research. Persons who eat coconut oil lived 100-106 yrs old in my family. These people made their coconut oil when they were too old to make it, they paid people to make the coconut oil for them. Ask the professor if he knows what virgin coconut oil is. The best of all for drinking and rubbing.
    If he was “Paid” to say that tell him come invest that money in coconut oil here.
