Coconut Oil Lowers Risk Of Cardiovascular Disease: American Heart Associated

Healthy Dietary Fats Help Beat High Cholesterol

Healthy Dietary Fats Help Beat High Cholesterol

Some claim that the mixture of fats in coconut oil still make it a healthy option, but the AHA says there is no good-quality evidence for this. For decades, virtually all doctors and other health professionals told people to stop eating saturated fat based on the belief that it raised "bad" LDL cholesterol and that cholesterol caused heart disease.

Coconut oil, edible oil extracted from coconut meat, has become all the rage on food blogs and in healthy cookbooks that use it in recipes instead of traditional dairy fats and other oils high in cholesterol. While it acknowledges that the majority of saturated fats in the American diet come from animal products, it says that plant products like palm and coconut oil can contain saturated fats as well.

"This recommended shift from saturated to unsaturated fats should occur simultaneously in an overall healthful dietary pattern", he writes.

"A recent survey reported that 72 percent of the American public rated coconut oil as a "healthy food" compared with 37 percent of nutritionists", the AHA's review notes.

Since the 1960s the AHA documents read saturated fat is detrimental to cardiovascular health.

Gizmodo reports that only a few studies in the AHA report dealt with coconut oil specifically. According to the USDA, eating unsaturated fats can help improve HDL, which is "good" cholesterol.

Research dating to the 1950s has shown links between saturated fats and LDL cholesterol - which increases heart disease risk. The Heart Association said polyunsaturated fats appear to lower the risk of heart disease the most, followed by monounsaturated fats.

According to the AHA, coconut oil is made up of 82% saturated fats while dairy fats like butter contains 63% and beef 50%.

Britain also enjoys many opt-outs from European Union rules, including from ever joining the euro zone. Britain voted by 52 per cent in favour of leaving the European Union in a referendum a year ago .

Even though coconut oil may increase LDL cholesterol per the AHA report, you do not necessarily have to avoid it.

But this is what everyone has been saying all along, because the ultimate message is to basically just eat less meat and dessert, eat more vegetables, and don't overdo it with the coconut oil.

However, for someone looking to lower their blood cholesterol levels, the AHA recommends reducing saturated fat to no more than 5 to 6 per cent of total calories, and for someone eating 2,000 calories per day, that's about 13 grams of saturated fats. Fats are essential for absorbing essential vitamins such as A, D, and E.

"Saturated fats can increase the risk of heart attacks, strokes and other blood vessel diseases".
