Coconut: good fat or bad? – Health & Wellbeing

Much can be said about the pleasures of coconut. Certainly the cuisines of a large number of countries, from India to Indonesia, would be much the poorer without it. But would they be healthier?

Yes, the world does seem to be a bit confused about coconut. I’d be inclined to look at the nations who use coconut on a regular basis and see what sorts of diseases and blood fat levels they have. I don’t like dried coconut but I love coconut juice and I sometimes use coconut milk and quite like fresh coconut. It can be good or bad according to our studies. maybe it depends on who you are and what your genetic make up is. In Vanuatu they strip the outside of coconuts to clean their teeth and they have fantastic teeth over there!
