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.

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.

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.

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 :)

After doing a bunch of research online I found this book that really gave me the 411 on coconut oil..
I use it for everything! Cooking, body lotion, oil pulling, in my natually tough hair etc and I love it!
This book is stacked with so much information that you really have to dedicate time to reviewing points
again and again. Information is key and you learn a lot with this great book.

I'm so annoyed I didn't come to the idea of using coconut cream and coconut oil as replacements for dairy products sooner!

I wish so much I had. The coconut ice creams and hot chocolates and other dishes I have been making since reading this book, and others like it, are just delicious and so good for you as well. I've been going a bit coconut crazy I have to admit!

This book is just excellent. If you aren't convinced that eating coconut oil, with its high level of HEALTHY saturated fat is good for you and wont make you gain weight, then I highly recommend either this book or 'Eat Fat, Lose Fat.'

(The other coconut books I have read also had far better recipe sections than this one - the recipes in this book were its low point.)

Don't believe the hype, extra virgin coconut oil is one of the healthiest foods you could ever eat, and it also has an anti-viral effect which is beneficial for those of us battling chronic illnesses and makes a great moisturiser as well.
