My recipes often use whole coconut, and coconut oil, the only fat that does not turn to dangerous trans fatty acids when cooked. Studies show it does not turn rancid even after a year at room temperature. Unsaturated oils can become rancid and therefore highly carcinogenic immediately after being treated with high heat, and most are already refined when they arrive on the shelf in a bottle. And the positive health effects of eating coconut oil daily, including weight loss, are dramatic and well documented in The Coconut Oil Miracle. It is antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, causes no arterial plaque.
