"My daughter told me about coconut oil after I started suffering severe and disturbing memory loss and brain fog to the point that I could barely have a conversation with anyone. I’ve been using it for over a year now and am very pleased to be myself again. The fog is gone and I’m able to drive safely again. I’ve been able to resume my hobbies: knitting and crochet because I can read and remember the patterns now." Read more about this mother's recovery in the story below:

Outside of the United States, the myth that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease is quickly falling apart. Last year, Sweden became the first western nation to reject the low-fat dietary philosophy in favor of a high-fat low-carbohydrate diet. A leading cardiologist in the U.K. made shock waves recently by appearing in the mainstream media and stating that saturated fats were not the cause of heart disease, but refined carbohydrates were.

Now, ABC TV in Australia has now released a news documentary with the title: "HEART OF THE MATTER: The Cholesterol Myth: Dietary Villains and Cholesterol Drug War." This documentary interviews cardiologists, science writers, and other experts who expose the saturated fat and cholesterol myth. People around the world are waking up to these dietary myths, as well as the scam of cholesterol-lowering drugs and how harmful they actually are. But given how much of a threat exposing this myth in losing billions of dollars in profits in the United States, will the mainstream media and the U.S. Government follow other western nations?

Governments here and abroad have been cautioning the public for decades on the dangers of high fat diets. Their claims based on “their science” concluded that it’s best to avoid fat because of its extra calories – and saturated fats raise the risk of heart disease. You’ll still see this on most food pyramids regulated by government policy on diet and nutrition. However, just as mandated healthcare policies fail at the federal level, so do those related to nutrition. This low-fat mantra has been questioned for years by clinicians and nutritional scientists – not least because it has failed to halt the obesity epidemic. The fact is, contrary to official advice by our diet dictocrats, high-fat diets lower blood sugar, improve blood lipids, and reduce obesity.

When you walk barefoot, free electrons are transferred from the earth into your body, and this grounding effect is one of the most potent antioxidants we know of. 

Inflammation thrives when your blood is thick, and you have a lot of free radical stress, and a lot of positive charges in your body. Grounding effectively alleviates inflammation because it thins your blood and infuses you with negatively charged ions through the soles of your feet. Grounding helps thin your blood by improving its zeta potential, which means it improves the energy between your red blood cells. Research has demonstrated it takes about 80 minutes for the free electrons from the earth to reach your blood stream and transform your blood.

I wonder if this was the mechanism of Anteus' ability?
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antaeus

History records that Anteus was a powerful man, a son of gods. He enjoyed wrestling and often challanged passing travelers to friendly competitions. Afterwards he'd reward them with a permanent place to stay at his father's house.

Anteus did have one unfair advantage -- any damage he suffered would heal when he touched the ground. Since inflammation is the body's response to damage, Anteus' ability is now explained.

Cardiologist Speaks Out On The Myth of Bad Saturated Fat Stating Carbs Are More Damaging Than Butter

A false interpretation of scientific studies has led to millions being "over-medicated" with statin drugs due to proliferation of myths in the medical community regarding the role of saturated fat in heart disease. A Cardiologist is now speaking out stating that almost four decades of advice to cut back on saturated fats found in foods such as butter and meat has paradoxically increased our cardiovascular risks:

Recent clinical and laboratory research has determined that chamomile is not only relaxing, but it can significantly decrease anxiety and even fight depression.

The most recent study, from the UK's University of Nottingham Medical School, found that chamomile significantly relaxed blood vessels and smooth muscle fibers. This effect of chamomile to soothe and calm the system was also shown in a recent study from the Eulji University Hospital in South Korea. Here, 56 patients undergoing coronary treatment and surgery were given aromatherapy with a combination of lavender, chamomile and neroli. A control group was given only nursing care. The researchers found that the aromatherapy group had significantly lower anxiety and improved sleep compared to the control group.

With the use of statin drugs on the rise, it is important to note that healthy lifestyle choices are far superior to drugs in keeping the cardiovascular system healthy. This is precisely the task that researchers from Ireland took on by completing an objective review of Pubmed, EM-BASE and Cochrane review databases. Their results speak volumes:

"It is beginning to dawn on some clinicians that contemporary treatments are not only failing to impact on our most prevalent diseases, but they may be causing more damage than good. A perfect example of such an issue is the statin saga.”

A study published in JAMA Ophthalmology reveals that the top-grossing, cholesterol-lowering drug class known as statins is significantly increasing the risk of cataracts within exposed populations. Statin-induced eye damage will be a surprising finding to some, especially to statin drug advocates who have argued that the purported "antioxidant" effects of statins may slow the natural aging process of the lens. This despite a separate study that showed statin drugs users to have a 48% higher risk of pathological eye lens changes commonly associated with cataract formation. Read more:

Coconut Oil: Research on the health benefits of coconut oil.
Introduction
Coconut Health brings you the top research and news regarding the health benefits of coconut oil. Coconut Health is brought to you by Brian and Marianita Shilhavy. Unlike many people who write about  coconut oil by simply reading about it, Marianita Shilhavy actually grew up on a coconut plantation in the Philippines and in a culture that consumed significant amounts of coconut fat in their diet. She later went on to earn her degree in nutrition and worked as a nutritionist in the Philippines. Brian Shilhavy also lived in the Philippines for several years with Marianita and their 3 children observing firsthand the differences between the diet and health of the younger generation and those of Marianita’s parents’ generation still consuming a traditional diet. This led to years of studying Philippine nutrition and dietary patterns first hand while living in a rural farming community in the Philippines. They are authors of the best-selling book: Virgin Coconut Oil: How it has changed people’s lives and how it can change yours! 

CoconutOil.com is the Internet's oldest and most up-to-date resource on the health benefits of coconut oil, and CoconutDiet.com contains the Coconut Diet forums in archive, with the historical records of the Coconut Oil Revolution, containing thousands of coconut oil users' discussions starting in the year 2000.
