While not the most articulate or eloquent piece of writing you ll run across, Fife takes the time to break down cocunut s history pushed out of the mainstream when saturated fats all fell under one umbrella and then became taboo as soy products and vegetable oils were being pushed , its differentiation from most fats MCFA s are becoming awidely researched nutrient in fight infections, cancer and viruses and its multiple uses Most eye catching to me despite the influx of soy products and the promotion of vegetable Part scare tactic, part hype, and heavily testimonial, but hidden within is a reasonable suggestion that coconut oil can be helpful in the prevention and treatment of health concerns If everyone attempted to follow Fife s advise the coconut fields would be overwhelmed and the price would rise to an impossible level I wonder if he is funded by the coconut and red palm industry I am already a coconut oil user and have used it to treat sinusitis with some success he did not mention my method I may follow some of his advise but will also keep heed his caveats even though he underplays them.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Coconut Oil Miracle Having been a proponent of the use of coconut oil myself, I found so many additional ways in which to incorporate it into my daily lifenot only in recipes, but also for hair and skin care There are several recipes in the back of the book that I plan on using, as well and I had no idea how much the soybean industry and our own government had brainwashed us, for many, many years, into believing that polyunsaturated fats were better for us than the tropical saturated fats, like coconut and palm kernel oils Sadly, much of our physical ills are a direct result of using those highly touted polyunsaturated fats in our diets Excellent book, in my opinion, and I ve been telling everyone I know to read it.
Oils saturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated.
these and so muchare discussed in this very informative book.
the nutritional and health benefits of coconut Also includes recipes to experience the healing miracles of the perfect food Well written, easy to understand, even the chapter that discusses the chemical make up of oils to support the scientific foundation I found this book informative and I had a better understanding of why some oils are good and others are bad.
My sister gave this book to me for my birthday, along with a jar of 100% virgin coconut oil, which I am about to try It is very interesting, though somewhat repetitive It is also a little hard to believe that coconut oil and other forms of coconut can be as good for a person as Bruce Fife claims I will know better just what it can do after I try some of the recipes, and perhaps use it on my skin and hair as suggested There are little stories of how other persons benefitted from the use of it, and there is the Coconut Research Center in Colorado as well.
Interesting how there was not one negative review here Come on think people don t be like sheep The book is skeptical Yes I m using coconut oil With every claim he makes I check the reference Mind you he failed completely to use not one footnote Proving his lack of scientific writing skills Editor is Not found Further when studies are done only in mice that does not by any means say same results will occur in humans Specifically on p 104 his, Skin elasticity test is so very bogus That test is a hydration test used in medical practice A child s skin will not retract well when dehydrated Yes it slows down with age but due to natural thinning of the skin All in all I failed to purchase a scientific book and that has me kicking myself R.
Anyone with any health problems, especially digestive issues, or who wants to best preserve the good health they do have, should take advantage of the wealth of great info research pesented in this book.
One of my children had had some physical behavioral symtoms that lead me to use a glutenfree casein free diet for awhile and a fish oil supplement , which helped a good deal, but there was still clearly a piece of the puzzle missing Coconut oil milk meat has been that piece It s potent healing properties are truly an every day miracle Plus the recipes for coconut cookies you can make them with agave sweetener instead of sugar and the curried cauliflower soup are supper tasty Highly recomended.
