I was trying to find a way to shout out a "thank you" to Becky Hand for her informative, helpful article on coconut oil.
I have been following the latest "craze" and people getting all hyped up about the amazing benefits of coconut oil. But I haven't bought into it, for many of the detailed, chemical reasons that Becky presented.
I had previously found a detailed article re. coconut oil and ran the whole thing by my chiropractor. He read through the fairly lengthy material and said that when all was said and done there was a lot of "smoke and mirrors" as to the actual health benefits of said oil. He said that nothing changes the reality that it is a medium chain fat and we tend to get a lot of this in our diets anyway. He said that it IS a high calorie food and at best should be used in moderation (as did Becky). As to miracle "cure," he said "pretty doubtful."
So my only other questions would be what about TOPICAL applications? I hear about people using it as part of a concoction for toothpaste, shampoo, face cream and so on. Any thoughts???
