Coconut Oil Benefits

28 Jul Coconut Oil, Yes, It is Still Good for You!

You might have heard about the recent new study from the American Heart Association regarding coconut oil. Depending on the news outlet reporting on the study, the findings promote the consumption of vegetable oils instead of oils that contain higher amounts of saturated fats.

Furthermore, these crops are, many times, used as animal feed...
