Health Impact News Editor Comments: For many years Pat Robertson of CBN and the 700 Club has warned his viewers of the dangers of saturated fat, assuming that the lipid theory of heart disease was true. I tried many years ago to send them our book on the health benefits of coconut oil, backed by solid research and over 100 testimonies, by sending a copy to then co-host Terry Meeuwsen, whom I had met once at a church in Mequon Wisconsin. At the time I simply got a polite letter back stating they would review the information. But with Pat Robertson preaching the evils of saturated fat, I figured there wasn’t much chance that the coconut oil message would be heard. I am glad they have now published Dr. Mary Newport’s story about her husband and his success against Alzheimer’s, a story we published on our website coconutoil.com back in 2008. Any time coconut oil receives positive press and people see some of the benefits, that is a positive thing!

As you watch this very well-produced report by CBN, let me offer a couple of cautions. While Dr. Newport accurately portrays Alzheimer’s as a type 3 diabetes, nothing is mentioned about some of factors or causes that lead to Alzheimers that include restricting cholesterol which the brain needs to stay healthy. The two primary culprits in restricting much needed cholesterol to the brain, is the low-fat dietary philosophy that restricts saturated fat (coconut oil is the most saturated of all dietary oils), and artificially lowering cholesterol through statin drugs, which studies now show are completely worthless in preventing heart disease, and very dangerous. Another doctor is actually quoted stating that cholesterol is both good and bad (HDL vs. LDL), a common theory that is being challenged today especially in terms of a causal relationship. Dr. Newport admits that her husband Steve was taking statins (cholesterol lowering drugs) until she took him off of them in 2009, after studying the cholesterol issue. She stops short, however, in recommending that others suffering from Alzheimer’s do the same.

So while this is a positive report, the research we previously published on Alzheimer’s and coconut oil and recently updated is still a more comprehensive report taking into consideration much more recent research: Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s: The Low-fat Diet and Cholesterol Lowering Drugs Part of the Problem?

Here’s the CBN report:

Coconut Oil Touted as Alzheimer’s Remedy

by Lorie Johnson CBN News

An estimated 5.4 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and that number is expected to increase exponentially as baby boomer generation enters their golden years.

But for some people, coconut oil has proven to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and may have even prevented it.

One of those people is Steve Newport, whose Alzheimer’s has slowed considerably. Some of his symptoms even reversed, thanks to the unlikely treatment prescribed by his wife, Dr. Mary Newport, a physician who runs a neonatology ward at a Tampa, Fla., hospital.

Snacking is something nearly everyone does and likes to do. It’s fun, easy, and can give you that extra mood lift or energy boost you need in the middle of the day.

Perhaps the best alternative you should be reaching for, instead of something loaded with processed sugary carbs, is coconut oil. Coconut oil is incredibly easy to work with, versatile, and can (and will) boost your energy, mood, and health.
