In recent years, the popularity of aromatic oil has increased - some people believe that it is beneficial to health. The product is used in cooking and cosmetics. However, Harvard University professor Karin Michels called it "pure poison."
Nutritionists talked about how to choose oil for a healthy diet
Coconut oil contains saturated fats that make it dangerous and contribute to serious health problems, she said. It is known as a potential product that can make a person healthier, but not everyone agrees with this, writes BGR.
Saturated fats are incredibly bad for the body, Michels said. Doctors have long argued that there is a link between these fats and heart disease. At the same time, unsaturated fats are good for humans, doctors say. Foods high in them can improve blood test results and type 2 diabetes, and can also shorten.
Previously, coconut oil was included in the list of foods that increase the level of "bad" cholesterol. Although this product is considered by many to be a healthy substitute for the usual oil, the doctor recommended excluding it and palm oil from the diet. For the same reason, experts advise to abandon the creamy one.
