It is well known that faulty diet and poor childhood nutrition are major factors contributing to the swelling number of diabetics in the world, but according to a study published in the German journal Environmental Health Prospect, pollution may also play a part in the spread of Type 2 diabetes.

Speaking to journalists at SL Raheja Hospital, senior diabetologist and secretary of the scientific section of the Diabetics Association of India, Dr Anil Bhoraskar said that in the German study, data from 1,775 women was analysed over a 20-year period and the primary reason for Type 2 diabetes was ascribed to pollution and rapid urbanisation. He said, “Excessive pollution creates oxidative stress by generating free radicals in the body which could potentially damage the pancreas and the endocrine system.”

Dr Bhoraskar added that this might explain the rapid rise in the number of diabetics in India. According to the International Diabetic Federation (IDF), there are 71.4 million diabetics in South-east Asia as of 2011, and 61.4 million of them are Indians. The rather alarming prognosis made by the study is that the number of diabetics in South-east Asia is expected to rise to a stunning 120.9 million by the year 2030.

According to Dr Bhoraskar, the consumption of good dietary fats found in homemade butter, ghee, coconut oil and fish is one significant way to counter the threat of diabetes. He also blames Vitamin D deficiency for the rise in the number of Type 1 diabetes patients. “Indians are prone to Vitamin D deficiency because of the lack of time spent out in the sun. Also, most Indians have heavily pigmented skin which reduces the ability of the body to absorb sunlight,” said Bhoraskar.

Cold drinks are a popular summer staple that coffeehouses and restaurants make a killing off of every year with their ridiculous prices. However, there is little need to buy them. Making most of these drinks at home is easy, not to mention with far more healthy potential when you control what goes into them.

Adding coconut oil to your blended cold drinks is one way to get your daily dose of coconut oil without it being bothersome or boring. Not only that, but the addition of coconut oil will also give your endurance and energy a boost, keeping you going throughout the day or acting as a quick pick me up along with some natural fruit as the day drags on.

WebMD is the world’s most visited “health” website. They derive their advertising from the pharmaceutical industry, so they have a pro-Pharma slant, as one can expect. It is not typically the place you would go to find information regarding alternative treatments to FDA approved pharmaceutical drugs. If you are contemplating using prescription drugs, it is a great place to get information about the medical industry’s products. If however you are looking for information on products that are not approved as drugs by the FDA, their information will be highly biased.

Due to the increasing popularity of coconut oil and its healing properties, WebMD now has a listing for coconut oil. It is listed in their vitamin and supplement section, since it is not approved as a drug, and since they generally do not provide any health information about foods.

They give the standard pro-Pharma view of coconut oil, which is that, in their view, there are no approved claims for coconut oil. They also warn people that coconut oil could raise cholesterol levels and could be harmful, even while acknowledging that research actually shows the opposite, since coconut oil traditionally lowers LDL cholesterol while raising HDL cholesterol (a positive thing.) They also warn that if people eat too much coconut oil, since it is fat, that it could lead to weight gain.

Interestingly, WebMD allows users to comment on these entries, presumably in a format where patients can comment on their own experiences with the vast array of drugs listed on their website. Read what users said about the “miraculous” properties of coconut oil in relation to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, weight control, memory, mood swings, energy, dry skin, dental health, stopping seizures and more.

Adding Coconut Oil into Your Fitness Routine

Fitness junkies, take note: you need coconut oil. Coconut oil straight up, in your protein-rich meals, protein shakes, snacks, pre-workout, post-workout fuel – whatever you choose. Coconut oil can be adapted into your style of eating and seriously enhance the results of the style of fitness you’re into, be it body building, toning, endurance, or general weight and muscle management.

So why add coconut oil into your fitness routine? Coconut oil is a rich source of MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), a high-energy fuel that the body uses to prevent muscle loss, but take off body fat. Coconut oil has a lot of these MCTs. Eat it.
