Much maligned for years as a saturated fat, we’ll bring you truth regarding the incredible health properties of coconut oil.

Another Phase 3 Trial Failure to Develop an Alzheimer’s Drug Shows Why Virgin Coconut Oil is Needed to Prevent Dementia

After more than a decade of failed drug trials and $billions lost in research to try and bring an Alzheimer's drug to market, maybe the pharmaceutical industry is finally ready to admit that they don't really understand what causes Alzheimer's disease. It was announced earlier this week that Roche had failed for the second time to develop a successful Alzheimer's drug. I have been reporting on the failure of Big Pharma to produce an Alzheimer's drug for over a decade now, along with publishing numerous testimonies of how many people have reversed the effects of Alzheimer's and dementia by using Virgin Coconut Oil in their diet, especially if it is part of an overall ketogenic diet which emphasizes healthy high fats, moderate levels of protein, and small amounts of carbohydrates. There is strong evidence that one of the main contributing factors for Alzheimer’s Disease is a diet too low in fats and excessive pharmaceutical drugs. The low-fat dietary advice, and the demonization of cholesterol, has led to poor health and the development of worthless and harmful statin drugs. The data and evidence on the health benefits of coconut oil and the ketogenic diet are overwhelming today, not only for Alzheimer’s Disease, but for a whole host of other diseases as well. I have also written a booklet that not only covers the research and testimonials on how Virgin Coconut Oil has helped so many people with Alzheimer's and dementia, but also includes dietary advice on how to include coconut oil into one's diet and other tips on Holistic Geriatric Care. I am offering this booklet to the public for free....

FDA Food Police want to Dictate What Foods are “Healthy” in New Guidelines Criminalizing Traditional Fats Like Butter and Coconut Oil

The criminal U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yesterday published new proposed rules dictating when food products can have the word “healthy” on their packaging and when they cannot. The problem is that you should not trust the FDA to tell you which foods are healthy and which foods are not, anymore than you should trust them when they claim that COVID-19 vaccines are "safe and effective." The FDA does NOT exist to protect you, the public, but corporate America and the Globalists that control Wall Street and the Bankers. Just as the FDA serves the interests of Big Pharma and their interests in promoting vaccines and other highly toxic and dangerous drugs, so too they serve the interests of Big Food and Big Ag, and the three main cash crops that each year are heavily subsidized with American tax dollars to achieve world food dominance which are: corn, soybeans, and wheat. So is it any coincidence that FDA dietary nutritional advice places a heavy emphasis on foods developed from these three cash crops? Not only are these three cash crops used to attain world dominance in cheap export foods that local economies in poorer nations cannot compete with by growing their own native crops, these three crops from the U.S. are also the most polluted and contaminated crops in the U.S., as over 90% of all corn and soybeans grown are genetically modified (GMO) varieties that are heavily sprayed with herbicides and pesticides, including glyphosate which is known for causing cancer. And while wheat so far does not have any GMO varieties being grown commercially, most varieties are grown in the northern states such as the Dakotas and Wyoming, where the crops are "desiccated" at harvest by spraying them with glyphosate-based herbicides which kill them and allow them to be harvested more conveniently before the first snow fall. So ignoring more than 2 decades of peer-reviewed studies published in the medical journals on the government's own NIH-funded website that conclusively show that a low-fat and high-carb diet that is promoted by the FDA and USDA is harmful to the nation's health, and that natural and traditional saturated fats that have been in the food chain for thousands of years, such as butter and coconut oil, are "unhealthy," while the newer "polyunsaturated vegetable oils" from corn and soy which have only been in the food chain since WWII and the invention of "expeller-pressed" technology which allows oil to be extracted from corn and soy and are heavily processed to make them shelf-stable are considered "healthy," the FDA continues to promote Big Ag and Big Food profits by promoting dietary guidelines that are destroying America's health.

Healthy Traditions: 20 Years of Demonstrating God’s Faithfulness in Offering an Alternative to Commodity Food and Products

20 years ago this month, in March of 2002, Tropical Traditions was born in the United States as an ecommerce company selling Virgin Coconut Oil and other products imported from the Philippines. We were the first ones to bring a "Virgin Coconut Oil" edible oil into the U.S. market at the time, and people thought we were insane, because coconut oil had been demonized in the United States for decades, simply because it is the one edible oil that has the largest percentage of saturated fat, which until this day, the U.S. Government health agencies want you to believe is a dangerous fat that leads to heart disease. Instead, USDA dietary recommendations for edible oils promote polyunsaturated oils, derived mainly from corn and soybeans. I had been living in the Philippines for 4 years by that time, and living in a rural area on a mountain, I was observing first hand just how wrong this dietary oil advice was. The older generation in our community, all consumed freshly made coconut oil from their own coconuts, and they were far healthier than the younger generations who mainly consumed store-bought commodity foods and shunned coconut oil because of the teaching in the United States on saturated fats. I did my own research, and I found out that the scientific literature on the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil was contradictory to USDA dietary advice that demonized coconut oil. So we learned how to make it by hand from the older generation living in our community, and began using it as our own main dietary oil in our diet. The positive change in our own health was very noticeable, and as I dug deeper into the literature about dietary oils, I soon learned that U.S. dietary advice was highly political, and designed to protect the main subsidized cash crops in the United States, like corn and soybeans. The dietary oils extracted from corn and soybeans, commonly known as "vegetable oil" today, is the #1 dietary oil consumed in the United States, and yet the technology to extract oil from these crops has only been around since World War II, and these polyunsaturated oils were not part of the human food chain prior to that. I decided then that I would only consume dietary fats and oils that had been in the human food chain for thousands of years nourishing populations, and would stay clear of the modern edible oils that technology had produced and that were not traditionally part of the food chain. So Tropical Traditions was born in March of 2002, and today we have expanded our product line to more than just tropical foods imported from the Philippines. But our philosophy has not changed. We are all about "traditional" means of producing food, and today the company has been renamed to "Healthy Traditions." Little did I know back in 2002 that I was embarking on a journey that would lead me straight into the lion's den, where my enemies would try to destroy me. So as I document in this article these past 20 years, this is not only a testimony of one American company, it is also a testimony of God's faithfulness, and an example of what he can accomplish through his children when they take him at his word, and understand that our calling in this life is a life of persecution as we stand for the Truth. Persecution and suffering are the norm, and not the exception, for those who stand on the Truth.

FDA Approves Non-effective New Alzheimer’s Drug Despite Their Own Doctors Recommending AGAINST It

Big Pharma has been trying to create a blockbuster drug for the very lucrative Alzheimer's Disease market for more than a decade. But they have repeatedly failed, mainly because they start with the wrong presuppositions on the cause of Alzheimer's, basing it on "genetics" instead of environmental causes. The over 55 age population has always been a cash cow for Big Pharma, as the most profitable drug of all time was Pfizer's Lipitor, a statin drug that artificially lowers one's cholesterol. Prior to its patent expiring at the end of 2011, no other drug in human history had racked up more sales than this one single drug, as their advertising campaign against cholesterol resulted in doctors placing nearly one out of every four people over the age of 55 on statin drugs to lower their cholesterol. But 25% of our body's cholesterol resides in our brains, so there have been honest researchers over the years, such as Dr. Stephanie Seneff at MIT, who have linked low cholesterol to a rise in Alzheimer's Disease. And so it is no surprise that coconut oil, demonized by Big Pharma, the USDA, the FDA and just about every other regulatory agency in the U.S. since the 1970s, can provide dramatic improvement to Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia, often with dramatic results. See our body of research provided over the years on coconut oil, along with amazingly dramatic testimonials for curing Alzheimer's at CoconutOil.com. We have covered all the previous failures of Big Pharma to produce a drug to treat Alzheimer's over the years, but just this week the FDA finally approved a drug for the treatment Alzheimer's Disease. But as reporter Andrew Joseph of Stat News writes, the FDA did so in spite of the fact that their own 11 doctor expert panel had 10 of those doctors state that "there was not enough evidence to show it could slow cognitive decline," and the 11th doctor voted “uncertain.” And now one of those doctors, Neurologist Joel Perlmutter of Washington University in St. Louis, has resigned.

Study: Virgin Coconut Oil Effective in Reducing COVID Symptoms

Dr. Imelda Angeles-Agdeppa, the director of the Department of Science and Technology’s Food and Nutrition Research Institute in the Philippines, was recently interviewed by CNN-Philippines about a study she led comparing COVID patients who ate a regular hospital diet, with patients who ate the exact same diet but supplemented with Virgin Coconut Oil, according to their body weight. She reported that at the end of 28 days, all of the patients who received the Virgin Coconut Oil supplementation exhibited no more symptoms of COVID-19. This is an interesting study, because the results depended upon COVID symptoms, and not faulty PCR test results, such as those that were used for the COVID mRNA vaccine trials.

Doctors in India Rediscover Coconut Oil’s 4000 Year History in Natural Medicine – Including Destroying Viruses

The July, 2020 issue of the Journal of The Association of Physicians in India has just published an article titled: "Coconut Oil and Immunity: What do we really know about it so far?" The lead author of the study is Dr. Shashank Joshi, Dean of the Indian College of Physicians; Consultant Endocrinologist, Lilavati Hospital & Research Centre and Bhatia Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra. It is refreshing to see Indian physicians turn their attention to Ayurvedic natural medicine, and its 4000 year history of recognizing coconut oil as a powerful natural medicine.  Ayurvedic health predates modern western medicine and the pharmaceutical industry by several thousand years in India. The poor people of India have for far too long been the human lab rats for western drugs and vaccines, and it is a key country where Bill Gates has promoted and developed new vaccines as part of his population control agenda. From the Abstract of the study: "Coconut oil as health oil was recognized in Ayurvedic medicine almost 4000 years ago. The same health effects were also attributed to the mother’s milk in ancient literature. Modern research has now found a common link between these two natural health products – their lipid content. The medium chain fatty acids and monoglycerides found primarily in coconut oil have miraculous healing power which act as natural antibiotic and also help modulate immunity. The information discussed in this review explains that coconut oil, either topically applied or ingested, gets broken down to release Lauric Acid and Monolaurin – known anti-microbial agents. The studies reported in literature are discussed to evaluate the antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal benefits of coconut oil. Not only does coconut oil metabolites have antimicrobial activity but also these remarkable derivatives have been shown not to cause resistance organisms to appear. The anti-microbial mechanistic action also helps activate the anti-inflammatory nature of the immune response in human body."

Coconut Oil Seen as Viable Option to Prevent and Treat Alzheimer’s Disease

For more than a decade now, we have been publishing research and testimonials from people who have had success in reversing Alzheimer's Disease with coconut oil. The research and testimonials are published on CoconutOil.com, part of the Health Impact News network. During this same time period, we have seen the pharmaceutical industry fail over and over again to develop a drug that is effective in treating Alzheimer's Disease. Researchers in Australia are now studying coconut oil, and its unique composition of medium chain fatty acids, as a way to prevent and treat Alzheimer's Disease. Starting from the basis that Alzheimer's Disease is a form of diabetes, referred to in the past as a "Type 3" form of diabetes, or what the Australian researchers refer to as "brain glucose hypometabolism," the research focuses on providing an alternative form of energy to the brain in the form of "ketone bodies." The title of their study is: Potential of coconut oil and medium chain triglycerides in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, published in the March 2020 edition of the journal Mechanisms of Ageing and Development. It is an exhaustive look at the current literature on this topic, with hundreds of references. 

Philippines and Singapore Testing Coconut Oil as Possible Treatment for Coronavirus

Coconut oil, whose health benefits have been proven in the past, will be tested for use as a potential treatment for the novel coronavirus infection. “That [VCO] is being looked into,” Philippine Health Secretary Francisco Duque III told CNN Philippines’ Newsroom on Tuesday. “We have heard very good studies with regard to its ability to neutralize the viruses, but for the COVID- 19, it is not clear,” the top health official added. He made the reaction following Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles' announcement Monday that a former academician from one of the country’s top universities proposed to test coconut oil as COVID-19 treatment amid the absence of a specific treatment. In a research proposal published on January 31, Ateneo de Manila University Professor Emeritus Fabian Antonio Dayrit and Dr. Mary Newport of Spring Hill Neonatolody in Florida, United States proposed to conduct a clinical study on patients infected with the COVID-19 involving VCO, saying “this treatment is affordable and virtually risk-free, and the potential benefits are enormous.” Nograles said the National University of Singapore has agreed to test VCO as a prophylactic against the COVID-19. Current evidence suggests coconut oil and its derivatives are safe and effective antiviral compounds in both humans and animals, the researchers noted. “Several in vitro, animal, and human studies support the potential of coconut oil, lauric acid and its derivatives as effective and safe agents against a virus like nCoV-2019 [COVID-19],” they said.

Coconut Oil’s History in Destroying Viruses, Including Coronaviruses

People living in the Philippines, a country of islands not very far off the coast of China, remember all too well the last time a deadly coronavirus epidemic broke out in China. It was 2003 when the SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) coronavirus broke out in China. It infected over 7000 people in China with over 600 recorded deaths. Even with its close proximity to China and large Chinese population in the Philippine nation of about 80 million people, only 14 cases of SARS was reported with two recorded deaths. Canada, many thousands of miles away, had far more cases and more deaths recorded due to SARS infection from China than neighboring Philippine Islands. One of the theories put forward at the time as to why the Filipino people had so few cases, was the country's predominant use of cooking oil: Coconut Oil. The Philippines is the world's largest producer of coconut oil, with about 70% of the world's coconut oil being exported from the country. The medium chain fatty acids of coconut oil, and primarily lauric acid, have been known to destroy enveloped viruses by researchers for many years. Dr. Fabian Dayrit, Ph.D. and Dr. Mary Newport, M.D. have just published a paper regarding coconut oil's potential to also combat the new coronavirus currently infecting people in China.

New Research on Coconut Oil Focuses on Replacing Antibiotics to Combat Antibiotic-resistant Pathogens

Coconut oil is nature's richest source of lauric acid, long known to be a powerful antimicrobial. As a saturated fat, coconut oil is almost 50% lauric acid. Nature's next most abundant source of lauric acid, human breast milk, comes in a distant second. For years now, research (primarily outside of the U.S.) on coconut oil has focused on the use of lauric acid as an adjunct or replacement for antibiotic drugs that have lost their effectiveness due to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens. 2019 has seen more studies published where coconut oil is studied in this context: how to deal with the emergence of antibiotic resistant pathogens, and the decreasing effectiveness of antibiotic drugs. A Japanese study published in the journal Cell Transplant was especially promising, as it showed that lauric acid could potentially be used as a broad spectrum anti-microbiological agent without disrupting the "good bacteria" in the human gut microbiota.
