With all the opprobrium cast against it, it bears repeating again and again that no evidence has ever been presented to prove that coconut oil causes coronary heart disease in humans. The human epidemiologic evidence proves that coconut oil is safe. Coconut eating peoples like the Polynesians and Filipinos have low cholesterol, on the average, and very low incidence of heart disease. All evidences now point to inflammation and low HDL as the principal instigators of plaque formation. The chemical properties of coconut oil (CNO) and its biologic actions as a medium chain fatty acid make CNO superior to other oils for cooking and health use. Its anti-inflamatory and immune-regulatory actions as shown by its remarkable control of diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, auto-immune diseases and cancer, make coconut oil unique. ~ Dr. Conrado S. Dayrit, author of “Coconut Oil: From Diet to Therapy”
“…The beneficial actions and uses of coconut oil in health and disease were backed up by published findings of American scientists on coconut’s uniqueness, namely its composition, metabolism and its killing actions on lipid coated pathogenic organisms. Recent and continuing explosion of new knowledge reveals coconut oil’s energizing anti-obesity effects; and for the first time, its anti-inflammatory and immuno-regulating actions as shown by its remarkable control of diabetes, hyper-tension, heart disease, auto-immune diseases and cancer…” ~ Dr. Conrado S. Dayrit, author of “The Truth About Coconut Oil – The DrugstoreIn a Bottle”

“Monolaurin, as a dietary supplement has shown very good results as an antibiotic and antiviral agent particularly in its potency against lipid coated/enveloped viruses. It does not cause resistance organism to appear and was also shown that it can reduce the resistance of germs to antibiotics.
When coconut oil is consumed, the body makes the disease-fighting monolaurin” ~ Prof. Jon Kabara, author of “Fats Are Good For You”
”Recently published research has shown that natural coconut fat in the diet leads to a normalization of body lipids, protects against alcohol damage to the liver and improve the immune system’s anti-inflammatory response.
The antimicrobial fatty acids and their derivatives are essentially non-toxic to man and they are produced in vivo by humans when they ingest those commonly available foods that contain adequate levels of medium chain fatty acids like coconut oil.
The medicinal properties of lauric acid (C12) and monolaurin have been recognized by a small number of researches for nearly four decades and this knowledge has resulted in more than 20 research papers and several U.S. patents” ~ Dr. Mary Enig, author of “Know Your Fats”
