She said: ‘Coconut oil is not a miracle food but it most certainly is not poison and can be enjoyed as part of a healthy diet.’ And Sarah Ann Macklin, a registered nutritionist who also works on Harley Street, shared a similar view. She added: ‘A natural product, such as coconut oil, to be branded “pure poison”, to me, is absurd. Evidence has shown saturated fats to not be the enemy for heart disease, with fats needed for our bodies to thrive and live. The evidence suggests, if anything, coconut oil tends to improve cholesterol profile, not make it worse.’ [. . .]
