  7. 7. COMPARISON Cholesterol, vitamin D, zink, selenium can be found in lard but not in coconut oil. Lard contains more vitamin E and choline as compared to coconut oil. Lard provides somewhat more energy than coconut oil. In fact, the difference in nutrients may be even larger, assuming that lard analyzed was not coming from an organic farm. Those meat products originating from ecological systems contain even more nutrients including vitamins. Coconut oil should be regarded as a food poor in nutrients. If we aim at a wholesome diet we should better avoid coconut oil but eat lard or other types of animal fat, as our ancestors did for centuries. paleomedicina.com
  8. 8. FURTHER CONSIDERATIONS We do not know any advantage of coconut oil over lard. Coconut oil is obtained through food processing, in some cases it is hydrogenated too, which raises further quality problems. As all vegetable oils, coconut oil reduces the efficiency of the thyroid hormones, thus their consumption may lead to hypothyroidism. As in all vegetable oils, there are lectins in coconut oil, which are aggressive biologically active molecules. Omega-6 oils found in lard and other animal fats can be regarded as healthy. As regards their physiological role omega-6 of animal origin should be discerned from omega-6 oils coming from plants. Preference for coconut oil roots back to the 80's and 90's when cholesterol and animal fats were declared to be unhealthy. Recommendation of coconut oil in any diet, including the paleolithic diet, is unwarranted and not supported by scientific evidence. Pushing coconut oil is emerging as a faulty practice as serious as prohibiting cholesterol and animal fats. paleomedicina.com
