Harvard professor says coconut oil is “pure poison”

HARVARD (KUSI) – If you’re trying to stay healthy, it may be time to step away from the coconut oil.

In a talk titled, “Coconut oil and other nutritional errors,” Professor Karin Michels, said coconut oil is not healthy, calling it “pure poison.” “This is one of the worst foods you can eat” she said.

His lecture has more than 1,000,000 views online, and comments are now disabled because it’s causing a lot of controversy.

Coconut oil has been advertised as a health food, but some nutrition experts say there isn’t any evidence to support this claim. The American Heart Association says the high saturated fat content in coconut oil can cause health problems.
