Heart healthy? You can do better than coconut oil

By Kelley Luckstein

I was recently contacted by a reader about whether coconut oil is beneficial to your health…

 

I Googled "coconut oil" and found a ton of conflicting information about the oil, so I turned to Chad Masters, an attending physician in family medicine at the Mayo Clinic…

 

"All saturated fat is equally bad," he said, noting that he wouldn't recommend people add it to their diets if they aren't already eating it.
