Is Coconut Oil Healthy? (The American Heart Association Doesn’t Think So) – Dr. Axe

Is coconut oil healthy? You may feel more confused than ever on the subject, thanks to the American Heart Association’s (AHA) June 2017 report on saturated fats.

The advisory report from the AHA looks at dietary fats and cardiovascular disease. But the association’s stark warning on coconut oil is what really came as a shock to the public. Here’s just a sampling of headlines since the report came out: “Coconut oil isn’t as good for you as you might think.” And, “Coconut oil isn’t healthy. It’s never been healthy.” Then there was this one: Coconut oil “as unhealthy as beef fat and butter.”
