A unique group of saturated fats known as medium-chain fatty acids, which are found in both mother’s milk and coconut oil, offer an array of potential health benefits. Monolaurin, the medium-chain fatty acid in coconut oil, is broken down in the body and mostly used for energy production. This means that it most often does not end up in the body as deposits in the arteries. What group of people consumes prodigious amounts of coconut oil? One group of big consumers is certainly Pacific islanders. And do these folk get heart disease? No, they do not. Nor do these islanders get cancer the way Westerners get cancer.
