If palm oil is bad for you, is coconut oil just as bad since coconuts grow on a type of palm?

Good oils: Virgin coconut oil is a saturated fat in the form of medium chain triglycerides, which is a great source of fuel for the body. It is processed differently from other saturated fats. Palm oil is actually not bad for you, as long as it is non- hydrogenated. Red palm oil, in particular, is high in beta carotene and has a high smoke point. Coconut and red palm oil can be used for high heat cooking. ...Read more

Wondering  what is medium chain triglyceride oil ( coconut and palm sourced ). Any concern , dosage limit or review on  this ingredient please. Thanks?

Usually safe: Although medium chain triglycerides are likely safe for most people, they may trigger certain side effects (such as nausea, stomach upset, gas, diarrhea, and vomiting). Also, regular intake of medium chain triglycerides may lead to the buildup of ketones (compounds produced when the body burns fat for energy) that can be harmful to people with diabetes and liver disease. ...Read more

Is it true that palmatic acid or palm oil turn into soap in the digestive tract of babies? Is it OK to eat palm oil during pregnancy?

Is it true that palmatic acid or palm oil turn into soap in the digestive tract of babies?  Is it OK to eat  palm oil during pregnancy?

Palm oil : Palm oil got its bad reputation as a highly saturated fat and should be eaten only in moderation at any time, not just during pregnancy. It will not turn into soap in the digestive tracts of infants. It is an oil that is used for making soap, so I guess that is where this rumour was started. ...Read more

I have sweaty palms. How can I stop/prevent it. Dose using antiperspirant cause cancer? And can applying tea tree oil on my palms help?

Antiperspirant: Try the same antiperspirant sold for under arms. MUST BE APPLIED TO DRY SKIN! More effective if you then wear plastic gloves over the antiperspirant for a few hours. Aluminum chloride does NOT cause any cancers. Tea tree oil is a loser, a waste of money, and often irritating. ...Read more

Hand washing: You can catch viruses and bacteria from anyone even if they don't have an open wound. Wash your hands regularly. You would only be at risk for blood borne illness if his fluid entered your fluid. Wash off your hands and your motor oil and you should be fine. ...Read more
