Ugh, I hate to be that whiney guy who sounds like your mother, but I think that despite the enormous amount of money the food industry is spending to promote coconut oil, leading to tons of popular media articles calling it healthy, it's just like partially hydrogenated oils. The food industry had us believing they were healthy for decades.
I attended a lecture last year by the head cardiologist at Stanford, who said he was surprised at how much progress the food industry has made in getting us to believe coconut oil is a reasonable substitute for lard and Crisco, when he thinks it's worse. He and other researchers have spent decades inducing heart disease in primates, and the cheapest and quickest way to do it is by adding coconut oil to their feed.
For years I cringed as Bob Harper, the famous trainer on Biggest Loser, demoed how he made coconut oil coffee in the mornings. But at 51 he had a near-fatal heart attack even though he is slender and ripped. At first he blamed his genes, but I notice that now he's changed his diet to Mediterranean and he's getting his heart disease under control.
