A recent study by American Heart Association revealed that coconut oil has never been a healthier option, but it is actually worse.
According to the study, coconut oil is made up of about 82% saturated fat which is far greater than other oils- butter (63%) and beef fat (50%).
AHA further reviewed existing data and found that coconut oil actually increases LDL cholesterol – bad cholesterol – which eventually leads to heart diseases by building up plaque in your arteries.
