I had been looking forward to reading this book for a long time before I actually managed to get hold of it. And I wasn't disappointed.

It turns out that we have all been deceived about the saturated fat in coconut oil being harmful.

Coconut oil is composed primarily of medium- and short-chain fatty acids. The medium-chain fatty acids are broken down and used mostly for energy production - thus they produce energy not fat. They have no negative effect on blood cholesterol and help protect against heart disease.

Saturated fats, having no missing hydrogen atoms or double-bonded carbons, are not vulnerable to oxidation and free radical formation like unsaturated fats. Saturated fats remain stable even when heated to normal cooking temperatures, and coconut oil is by far the safest oil to use in cooking, though you must ensure that you use temperatures below 350 degrees F, i.e. avoid letting the oil smoke. In fact the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil give it unique properties and make it the healthiest oil of them all.

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oils are oils composed of 100% medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). These are derived from coconut or palm kernel oils. Coconut and MCT oils are used in hospitals to treat malabsorption syndrome and burnt or severely ill patients, among others. Coconut/MCT oil has been an important ingredient in baby formulas and especially in treating premature babies. The MCFAs in coconut oil are lauric acid (48%), caprylic acid (8%)and capric acid (7%). However, coconut oil contains "a complete set of MCFAs", "provides a balance of several fatty acids rather than just two" and is a completely natural product.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful information 9 Dec 2009
Size Name:Fife
I'd actually read this book years ago but the information was buried under the avalanche of further reading I've done since. Recently several more books recommended coconut oil but did not give a lot of information about it, so I re-read a couple of books by this author.

As far as I can tell, all the information from this book is also in the later one which also includes further information about the healing powers of coconut meat, milk and juice (or water). I would therefore suggest getting "Coconut Cure", rather than this one, although both are excellent.(Papaya/Pawpaw is another miracle fruit worth checking out, by the way.)

Coconut oil has been used for centuries by tropical inhabitants. The author offers good, informative details about the miracle of coconut oil. Much information is given on the health benefits (yes BENEFITS) of saturated fats and the "smear" campaign of the vegetable oil industry. In fact coconut oil can help weight loss for the obese and weight gain for the over-skinny as well as reduce heart disease and many, many other health problems: it may prevent and even reverse all sorts of things from inflammation to infections. And allergies. And skin conditions, including fungus.

Unfortunately, I can't say I noticed much improvement in myself but eventually I was diagnosed with severe low thyroid problems (that the NHS managed not to diagnose or treat for over 20 years) - and no medical treatment, alternative therapy, "healing" oil or "super" food was going to make much difference until I got the thyroid supplementation I desperately needed.

Up until I read that book I was absolutely ignorant about the coconat oil health benefits (fighting infections, improving nutrition, etc) The author lists scientific studies to back up his claims. Coconat oil is shown as a natural, centuries tried and tested aid to health, beauty and longevity. I suggest getting this book together with Can we live 150 Year - a great volume on natural health, weight loss, and longevity issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Though-provoking, in-depth coverage 8 Jun 2004
This book was a revelation. For those who think all saturated fats are equal, think again. The properties of coconut oil truly are amazing. Even if only half of it were put into practice, the burden on the health service would be considerably reduced. Why are large pharmaceutical companies allowed to stand in the way of cheap solutions? Think of the taxes that could be saved, as well as the improvements to health that would be gained.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Coconut Oil Miracle by Dr. Bruce Fife 30 Sep 2009
Size Name:Fife
I had been led to believe that saturated fats are harmful to the physiology, yet also that coconut oil is one of the saturated fats which are safe to use at high temperatures = oils change chemically at high temperatures.

So, I was intrigued about the Miracle of Coconut Oil.............and, what I found was truly amazing. This wonderful oil had been withheld from us.....for commercial reason, as is explained by Dr Fife who went into thorough research and also set up the Coconut Research Center. Most saturated fats , which includes oils , are long chain fatty acids. Now, coconut oil is a medium chain fatty acid = and therein lies it's difference.

So, what I found was truly amazing, and I find we owe Dr Fife huge gratitude that he has brought to our attention this wonderful health-benefitting fat, once again = after it having been side-lined for a while.

He explains everything he found, research - and this research confirmed scientifically - and what benefits can be derived from it.

One fantastic piece of information = total 'must read and implement' = as is his other book on Oil Pulling.

I have implemented both, and recommend both to whoever will listen.

Thanks you Dr. Fife :)
