    Confusing Info From RP About Coconut Oil And Butter

    I've heard RP recommend butter and coconut oil in many videos and interviews, yet in this video he says they cause cancer and are loaded with PUFA, and eventually will kill you. Anyone cares to explain this confusing info. For the past couple of months I've stopped using EVOO and starting using...

    AC Suppository

    Has anyone tried an activated charcoal suppository? For example, some AC inside coconut oil? My thought is this would by pass the issues with AC pulling out too many beneficial things? And the added benefit of the MCT.

    Study Claims That Coconut Oil Increase Oxidative Stress Compared To Sesame Oil (High PUFA)

    No, this is not an April's fool joke. Kind of surprising that this study did not make front page news on MSM, but it may be better this way as the study will probably quickly get retracted if it becomes more popular. Several important findings in this study. The first one is probably the...

    A Saturated Fatty Acid (caprylic) Can Obliterate Tumors (in-vivo) In Just Hours

    I posted a few studies on the anti-tumor effects of saturated fatty acids (SFA). However, they were all in-vitro studies and as such do not carry as much weight as studies on living organisms.

    Transdermal Delivery Of Saturated Fat Changes Systemic Fatty Acid Profile

    Why Isn't There More Enthousiasm About MCT Oil?

    There's a bunch of threads about people looking for verified fully hydrogenated coconut oil, because obviously we want to eliminate PUFA as much as possible (has anyone found one yet by the way?). Why aren't we all taking large amounts of MCT oil as a proper calorie source? This is 100%...

    Coconut Oil Extraction

    I have read that unless you are using a cold extraction technique, coconut oil making could involve boiling it for hours. This is enough to damage it as far as I know.

    Coconut Oil Reduced DHT By Inhibiting 5-ar?

    This was something I researched a bit a few years ago when first learning about Ray Peat and his affinity for coconut oil. I actually asked him this question but he seemed to not know the answer. Lauric acid among other fatty acids is known for blocking the conversion of DHT by inhibiting...
