Coconut oil is incredible for cooking. It would be lousy for high-temp frying, but that is usually not a problem, as people who gravitate toward it tend to not desire deep fried solutions. It is incredible for anything where you would typically use butter or another oil. Coconut oil is what they used to pop popcorn with at the theaters - back when it tasted reaalllllly good. I scramble eggs with it, use it to saute veg, the uses are endless. The medium chain triglycerides are incredibly under-rated and critical. One note, though, it is a peculiar oil in that it solidifies below 76 degrees, so it can be liquid during one use and solid the next time you grab it.
Yep, and so few people knew/know that. The trouble is news reporters cannot be bothered and bureaucrats are fearful and slothful. They’re the anti-entrepreneurs.
Curcumin, possibly the most powerful antioxidant known from the popular Indian spice Turmeric, has countless health benefits. A recent study led by a research team in Munich showed that it can also inhibit formation of metastases.
Curcumin exerts anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects by inhibiting tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), suggesting that its effect on endothelial function may be mediated by the suppression of inflammation and/or oxidative stress via down-regulation of TNF-alpha.
One of the most comprehensive summaries of a review of 700 turmeric studies to date was published by the respected ethnobotanist James A. Duke, Phd. He showed that turmeric appears to outperform many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic, debilitating diseases, and does so with virtually no adverse side effects.
