    It's funny when you think about back in the days when coconut oil was prevalent in so many aspects of island life, people were much healthier but with the introduction of lard and beef fat and cornned beef in tins people don't make coconut oil like they used to and obesity has become such a problem in many of the island nations.

    More the pity as coconut oil has such a beautiful flavour and like the article says has so many uses that it truly is a miracle oil.

    Can I please see the links to the studies claiming all this?
  • Wice says
    I agree H2ORisso. On the other side:
    "There is very limited evidence on disease outcomes, says Dariush Mozaffarian, MD, DrPH, of Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health. "All that has been studied well is the impact of coconut oil on cholesterol levels and the findings are intriguing but we still don't know if it is harmful or beneficial," Mozaffarian says.

    Neither the American Heart Association (AHA) nor the U.S. government's 2010 Dietary Guidelines suggest that coconut oil is any better or preferable over other saturated fats. Coconut oil, like all saturated fats, should be limited to 7%-10% of calories because it can increase risk for heart disease, according to the AHA and 2010 Dietary Guidelines."

    People often think that cannabis and CBD oils are all the same, which is not entirely accurate. Cannabis oil production typically depends on extracts from marijuana, which usually contains a higher level of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD oil has a very small amount THC and is made from stems, stalks, and leaves of the hemp plant. buy cannabis oil
