Heart healthy? You can do better than coconut oil

By Beth Backus

The Florida Times-Union
I was recently contacted by a reader about whether coconut oil is beneficial to your health. Gary of Southwest Jacksonville had heard that even though it's high in saturated fat, it's helpful in regulating cholesterol levels. 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.
