Real Doctor Reacts To Absurd MCT OIL & COCONUT OIL Claims

Real Doctor Reacts To Absurd MCT OIL & COCONUT OIL Claims

MCT oil and coconut oil. Are they health
food or are they poison? Well it kind of depends on when you’re talking about
because for thousands of years it was just food and many cultures did
extremely well. They used coconut cream and whole coconut and coconut oil and it
was just a staple but then about fifty years ago when fat an especially
saturated fat got blamed for heart disease
now everything took a turn so now coconut oil was the worst of the worst
and then a few years ago it made a comeback and it became a health food and
then people started using it for all sorts of health reasons and ever since
then it’s kind of bounced around every year it goes from poison to health food
and back and forth and back and forth so I guess it’s this time of year because
this month Canadian CBC News had another report out where they talked about the truth of coconut oil so today we’re going to take
a look at that video and comment on some of those rather absurd claims that were
made. Coming right up! Hey I’m Dr. Ekberg I’m a holistic doctor
and a former Olympic decathlete and if you want to truly master health by
understanding how the body really works make sure you subscribe and hit that
notification bell so you don’t miss anything. We’re setting up shop to talk
to shoppers about a big health trend. Coconut oil. What kind of cooking oil do
you use? I do often shop for olive oil and coconut oil. At home I use a lot of coconut oil. As a matter of fact, I’m from the Carribean, so we use a lot of coconut oil. Yeah so this would look familiar to you. Very much so. the coconut oil industry has exploded
raking in over 650 million dollars last year alone. It sound like these consumers
are relatively well-informed they’re favoring natural oils like olive oil and coconut
oil and then we have this news team come in and the reporter sets up shop to
teach these shoppers about coconut oil and the first thing we hear is that
they’re raking it in six hundred and fifty million dollars which sounds like
a really really big number but how big is it really. Well let’s compare it with
margarine margarine is a food that everyone pretty much agrees that it’s
the worst of the worst I mean you might as well eat plastic it’s up there with
lead poisoning in terms of nutritional value and even though it has been
declining it is still selling four times as much margarine as coconut oil in the
world so it’s not an enormous amount and if we compare it to something like soft
drinks it is one six hundredth there’s 600 times more sugary drinks sold than
coconut oils so if we’re gonna focus our attention on something then let’s focus
our attention on putting warning labels and explaining what margarine and soft
drinks do but as always in journalism words are chosen very carefully to
invoke feelings so they’re inferring that these are mega companies that are
making claims and taking advantage of people so I just wanted to
put that in perspective MCT oil. That’s medium chain triglycerides the wonders
of MCT oil and the coconut oil craze are linked and it all goes back to this 2003
study. Makes you wonder. Is there anything to all these health claims? To find out
we track down the author of the study that set off the craze. Hi Marie Pierre
hi nice to meet you this is the shop all right would you like a coffee sure all right
two black coffees with coconut oil please
lots of people put coconut oil in their coffee but this is a first for her we
did a research to look at the influence of MCT oil on energy expenditure and
body composition wait what you weren’t testing coconut oil not at all
we were testing MCT oil it’s very purified form MCT is a subcomponent of
coconut oil and only 15 percent of coconut oil is MCT what her research did
find was a small improvement in weight loss for overweight people who consumed
MCT oil but Zippo on coconut oil. In 2003 there was a study on MCT oil and energy
metabolism and the study showed that there was some effect that MCT oil could
be beneficial for weight loss and then the reporter sits down and talks with
the author of that study Marie-Pierre St. Onge and in the middle of that she
goes what the study was about MCT oil and not coconut oil and then the lady
says yes that we studied MCT oil and they’re not the same thing
well no news there but what the reporter is inferring with her surprise and her
disdain is that because the study showed MCT oil was good but it didn’t show that
coconut oil was good then coconut oil must be bad right the study
didn’t say anything about coconut oil we they are related they are not the
same MCT oil if made from coconut oil but we can’t draw any conclusions from
that study all it showed was that MCT oil is good so if they’re closely
related then maybe there’s some benefits to coconut oil as well but they never
even get into that they’re just sort of inferring that well then coconut oil
must be bad. Many experts are concerned that coconut oil is high in saturated
fat what if I told you though that one tablespoon of coconut oil has 13 grams
of saturated fat. Yuck. That’s more than two-thirds of your daily saturated fat
limit. That’s the opposite of healthy. When we hear something over and over it
becomes a truth whether it has any substance to it or not and we’ve heard
about fat and saturated fat for about 50 years I remember growing up and I
thought that fat was yuck exactly like the guy in the video you just have to
hold out a spoon and say saturated fat and people go yuck and then he added
well that’s the opposite of healthy this same person who had for good reasons
been purchasing coconut oil in his diet all he has to do is meet someone holds
out something that says saturated fat and it’s like this triggered queued
response we need to understand a little bit more about the foods because
otherwise we’ll just be like a leaf in the wind we’ll go wherever the wind
blows and this week it’s something and next week it’s going to be something
else so we need to start understanding these things so let’s just spend a few
minutes looking at what is coconut oil and what is saturated fat I’m going to
explain that in some more detail as we go so fatty acids they’re chains of
carbons they they’re carbon by carbon by carbon linked in a chain and then on the
sides they have hydrogen atoms and if they have one
hydrogen atom on each side then they’re called saturated because there’s not
room for anymore they’re saturated with hydrogen but if something is unsaturated
that means that in some places these carbons are linked together with what’s
called a double bond two of the links are used up to unite the carbons and
then they only have one bond left over for a hydrogen so these carbons only
have one hydrogen instead of two and then they’re called unsaturated so this
bond this double bond could react with an enzyme or with heat or with oxygen
and it could be oxidized it could have a chemical reaction so that’s why
unsaturated fats are more sensitive to oxygen and heat and light and the reason
medium chain and short chain triglycerides are such a big deal the
reason they studied them is that they behave a little bit different depending
on how long the chain is caproic acid has six carbons it’s called a short
chain so it’s not usually included some MCT oils has about 1% of that in there
because they didn’t bother taking it out but medium changed strictly speaking our
eight carbon chains or 10 carbon chains so the shorter they are the faster they
can be metabolized and there’s two reasons for this first of all the the
shorter they are the quicker the enzymes can chop them up there’s fewer chops to
make but the second reason has to do with our digestion that there’s two
primary ways that food can be absorbed from your gut and the first is through
the lymph system and the second is straight into the blood and if it’s
absorbed straight into the blood then it goes into through a system called the
portal vein and it has to be really really tiny to get straight into the
bloodstream if it’s larger the larger it is the more it is similar to foreign
substances like virus and bacteria and then
we need to give our immune system a chance to work at it and the cutoff is
right between ten and twelve carbons long so the smaller molecules can go
straight into the blood the larger ones have to get into the lymph system first
so the reason MCT’s are studied and so popular is they save you a couple of
hours that MCT’s can be chopped up and used for energy within minutes whereas
the longer ones are gonna take a few hours so it’s not good or bad it just
depends on what you’re looking for but if people are trying to get fat adapted
if they’re carb dependent then it can be tremendously beneficial to have a faster
source of energy and that’s why people use those so coconut oil has about 1% of
the six carbon chain eight percent of the eight carbon chain
and about six percent of the ten carbon chain so it has about 15% of medium
chain triglycerides or shorter those are the ones that qualify that go straight
into the bloodstream anything longer is not going to go straight in the next one
lauric acid is kind of in between lauric acid about 25% of lauric acid
goes straight into the bloodstream so it also qualifies really as an MCT but 75%
of it gets absorbed into the lymph and that’s why lauric acid is not considered
a medium chain triglyceride and anything longer is going to take longer to be
absorbed it doesn’t make them bad it’s just not a medium chain triglyceride
anymore so carbons can get even longer but
there’s very very few beyond 18 carbons and this is called stearic acid and this
is the way that animals store most of their fat so humans store stearic acid
on their bodies and animals that we eat store it mostly as stearic acid but
coconut oil also contains a couple more things it has 6% of something
called oleic acid which is 18 carbons long and it has one place where there’s
a double bond so it is monounsaturated and of course oleic comes from olive oil
so six percent of the fat in coconut oil is actually the same as the dominant fat
in olive oil and then there’s just two percent of linoleic acid which has two
places where its unsaturated which makes it an omega-6 none of these fats are bad
none of them are artificial none of them are synthetic they are just different
lengths and coconut is a very unusual because there’s no other product there’s
no other food on the planet that has this type of distribution so when they
make MCT oil they just separate the shortest chains so they get about 15%
MCT oil it’s a refined product out of the
coconut oil and the rest is used for other purposes they have other nutritive
purposes or they can be used for cosmetics and creams and shampoo and
things like that now just a quick point here that the study they refer to into
from 2003 it said that MCT oil had some benefits for weight loss and they didn’t
have anything bad to say about MCT oils but then they went on to say that people
are concerned experts are concerned because coconut oil is so high in
saturated fat well MCT oil separates out the 8 and 10
carbon chains which are fully saturated they have zero double bonds and
therefore MCT oil is a hundred percent saturated ok so again that doesn’t make
it bad it’s just what it is it’s a good fuel coconut oil however if saturation
was what we should judge oils on if they’re good or bad is only 86 percent
saturated so from the saturation perspective then coconut oil would be
better. How does that compare with butter or olive oil? Good question. It’s the same as almost two tablespoons of butter. All right. Wow. Six and a half tablespoons of olive oil
okay. Really? That’s crazy! And. Wait for it! Two and a half tablespoons of lard. Lard wow. That’s stuff right here. Damn that’s crazy actually. I didn’t realize that
yeah Okay. Here you can have this back. And now she goes through the unveiling process so she compares she holds out the spoons
of coconut oil and says how much saturated fat that is and it’s over your
daily limit and then she compares it to other forms of fat and shows that based
on how much saturated fat it’s worse than any other form of fat and people
are oohing and aahing and grossing out along the way because everyone knows how
bad fat is so there is no argument here it’s just playing on emotion based on
misconceptions based on a myth that people have bought into but she’s not
telling them anything new she’s just saying ooh
saturated fat and and people just go along and then she saves the last box
for last and she says now hold on here hold on here drumroll and she lifts it
and it’s lard all right and again it’s all these connotations that we have
there’s nothing wrong with any of those fats I eat them all on a regular basis
if I cook bacon I make my own bacon bits I get lard leftover I save it for
cooking when I make my bone broth I get beef tallow pure saturated fat leftover
I save it for cooking because they’re all good and the only thing the reporter
uses to back up her story is the fact that Canada Food Guide and of course
also the American USDA are recommending us to limit our fat intake especially
saturated fat now of course the reason that people are so afraid of fat is that
in the back of their minds and especially saturated fat in the back of
their minds they have heart disease cardiovascular disease because that had
been linked at one point most research in the last ten years have shown the
opposite that it’s due to inflammation but of course it takes a couple of
generations for people to change their mind even after the evidence is in but
if it’s heart disease that were afraid of let’s just look at the track record
of the experts food recommendations so on this scale we have percentage of
obesity in the United States and on this scale we have diabetes incidence in
millions so in 1960 we had about 12% of obesity in 1970 we had about 14-15 in
1980 we had about 17 or so so it was climbing steadily and what happened in
1980 well a couple of things they came out with high fructose corn syrup and
the government decided to issue some guidelines to teach people how to eat
and they said you should eat sixty percent of your calories should come from
carbohydrates no more than ten percent should come from saturated fats and no
more than ten percent should come from added sugar so all in all though the
vast majority of the calories come from sugar either added sugar or fruit sugar
or milk sugar or lots of other forms of sugar that are allowed and recommended
in the food until they published the guidelines in 1980 the trend looked kind
of like this and after they published the guidelines and people got really
scared of fat now the trend looked like that so we can’t say that there’s a
causative relationship between the guidelines and the changing the
accelerating trend but we can say for sure that it didn’t help a whole lot
either when we look at from 1990 and on now of course it has exploded and in the
last year we had over 40% obesity in the United States when we look at diabetes
we find that if you if you watch some of my other videos you know that obesity
and diabetes are both due to insulin resistance and the diabetes is just
lagging behind 10, 15, 20 years which matches this graph exactly and we see
that in 1960 we had a very small percentage in 1970 it was increasing by
about 2 to 3% per year and it went over 10% in 1990 and it didn’t accelerate as fast
as the weight gained because it lags behind a little bit but then in 2000
2010 2018 it has absolutely exploded and it’s now going even faster trend
increase than than the weight gain and despite this despite the evidence in
hand they have not changed more than a few commas in their food recommendations
they still recommend 60 – 65% carbohydrates three cups a low-fat dairy
no saturated fat avoid animal foods animal fats and the advice is the same
over and over and over things are getting worse and worse and worse but
they’re just saying hey our guidelines are correct there based on experts
recommendation it’s you people who aren’t doing it right and of course as
we’ve talked about in other videos you can’t do it right when you’re insulin
resistance because your insulin dictates your hunger but the point of this again
is that she’s referring to the experts and here is the result
or at least lack of results of listening to experts so we need to start
understanding food rather than just looking at the last piece of research
because this goes back and forth every year it changes this year coffee is good
next year coffee is bad blueberries are good blueberries are bad chocolate is good
chocolate is bad coconut oil who knows what it’s going to be next year unless
we start understanding more about the food so since the biggest hurdle to
overcome is our fat phobia and our saturated fat phobia we need to
understand some things about fat why does the body need fat what is fat good
for right so first we talk about essential fatty-acids those are things that
the body needs in very small relatively small quantities compared to the the
food the energy fats and those are the Omega 3’s and the omega 6’s and they
are essential that means you can’t live without them essential means necessary
for life and they help build cell membranes okay your brain is mostly fat
and the cell membranes are mostly a fat called DHA it’s a very long chain six
times unsaturated fatty acid that gives the brain and the neural membrane
certain properties of signaling and your brain can’t mature and it can’t function
and it can’t repair itself the brain and the nervous system if you’re deficient
in these long-chain omega-3 fatty acids which essentially come from fish oil you
can get some from algae if you’re a vegetarian but primarily they come from
fish your body can theoretically make some from linolenic acid which comes
from flax for example but the conversion is so poor it’s like less than 1% for
most people so the realistic chance of getting enough is to take a supplement
to eat lots of fish or take it an algae supplement or something like that but
these are essential they’re in small quantities they are signaling their
building materials their precursors thyroid and adrenal function depends on
essential fatty acids hormone production depends on essential fatty acids and
regulation of your blood pressure your liver function your immune system your
inflammatory responses all of those depend on small quantities the right
proportions and ratios of these so the body doesn’t burn these these are not
for fuel the body uses them for very very specific purposes we only need a
few grams a day of these now all the other fat
is fuel and you store fuel and you burn fuel any excess fuel that you eat if you
eat more carbohydrates or more protein or more fat or a combination thereof
during a period of plenty of food during a feast period the body is going to
store the excess and it doesn’t store it as canola oil it doesn’t store it as
safflower oil it stores it primarily as saturated fat and the primary one is
going to be a stearic acid the unsaturated the monounsaturated the
polyunsaturated those are for specific functions they’re not for fuel we don’t
need a lot of those things and the only ones that we really need are these
things that give us EPA and DHA and the plant oils don’t do that the canola and
the safflower cannot contribute to your omega-3s that you need for your brain
humans and cows and pigs they store the excess fuel as fat and we store it as
the most effective like a standard form of fat storage which is a saturated fat
so when humans take excess carbohydrates we store it as saturated fats and then
when there’s a period of famine we retrieve we burn the saturated fat
that’s what saturated fat is its fuel it’s a very efficient way of storing
fuel other than that what is it that makes saturated fat so good and plant
fats not so good it is the fact of stability saturated fats are very
stable because the carbon is jam-packed with hydrogen it’s full it is very
unlikely to react with anything and this is why you can leave coconut oil sitting
on the counter for a year or two it doesn’t go rancid it doesn’t spoil you
can keep it in a clear container right it’s probably even better if you
keep it in in the fridge in the dark but it is so stable it is not gonna spoil
the extreme opposite is something like flax oil which is the plant omega-3 that
as long as it’s inside the flax seed it protected nature has put a very very
tight dark shell on the oils but as soon as you break it and turn it into oil it
goes rancid in minutes to hours you need to keep that in the freezer right
so saturated fats are stable that makes them an ideal form of food because
that’s gonna mean that the food is not rancid it is not spoiled but when we eat
a lot of plant oils the polyunsaturated plant oils like canola and safflower and
soybean etc those things oxidize and they go rancid and they taste terrible
so in order to prevent that terrible taste they refine them and they process
them and they deodorize them and they degum them and they bleach them until
there is nothing left and now they have a tasteless flavorless nutrition free
oil that also keeps forever but it’s because they destroyed it so saturated
fats are not bad they are bad if you carry them in your belly around your
internal organs and that’s part of metabolic syndrome which is a result of
insulin but other than that the only bad saturated fat is if you eat an animal
that wasn’t healthy so if you eat meat then you don’t want to go and eat the
grain-fed cow that’s been pumped full of hormones and antibiotics and it was so
sick that it wouldn’t have lasted another three months before they turned
it into hamburger right you want to eat something that had a normal life just
like the lion hunts the antelope that antelope was healthy and free until it
became food that’s what our meat needs to be as well if it’s healthy
then it’s healthy for you if it’s sick then it’s gonna make you sick We tell Health Canada about the industry’s claims and we learn our government is
planning to put warnings on foods high in saturated fat someday if the proposal
gets passed In the meantime these shoppers have a message. Do you think there should be a warning to consumers about how much saturated fat is in
something like this? 100% Why? Because I did I didn’t I had no clue. So the saturated fat is on the label but should there be a warning? Yeah. Cause i
guess it feels like they’re just not putting it explicitly on the people.
Until that happens. Are you gonna keep on using coconut oil? For certain things yes for other things probably take a step back and look at either canola or I mean lard in this case I guess. No not not today not tomorrow not ever. I don’t know if I want to laugh cos’ it’s so ridiculous or if I want to cry because
it’s so tragic but Canada is apparently planning to put warning labels on food
based on their saturated fat content right in the US they put heart healthy
on cereals full of sugar and grain the most inflammatory foods producing heart
attacks and metabolic syndrome and that’s heart healthy the food labeling
is so misguided and so misleading and focusing on all the wrong things and now
they’re just gonna take it one step further and put another barrier between
us and healthy foods such as grass-fed beef and grass-fed butter and coconut
oil as for the shoppers in the video weren’t they lucky to have their
lifestyle improved by a reporter who came in and taught them the truth about
coconut oil so one of the guys who had been on the right track now he said I’m
gonna have to rethink what I’m doing I’m probably gonna have to cut back on
coconut oil and start using more canola oil
like we said polyunsaturated rancid processed omega-6 inflammatory the list
goes on and on and on so weren’t they lucky to get lectured by that reporter
the reason I want to comment on videos like this is that they’re so skillful
but they’re not based on anything they’re very very good at editing and
shooting and presenting things in a way that’s very convincing that’s very
emotional that’s very provoking but the only two arguments they made in the
entire thing was that coconut oil is bad because it’s not MCT oil which was
studied in the 2003 study and that coconut oil must be bad because it has
saturated fats so I do the videos the way I do because I want people to
understand a little bit more if you just have the basics if you just know 1 2 3
this is what I’m supposed to do then you’re gonna hear something new every
day and you’re gonna change your mind every day because we’re just bombarded
with information and misinformation but if you start understanding the basics if
you start understanding the properties of food why saturated food is good its
fuel it’s stable why polyunsaturated can be good because they have certain
information properties that the body needs that the body uses these for
building blocks and information and uses the other fat for fuel and the
unsaturated fats that we need are for information they don’t come from the
polyunsaturated plant foods they’re very very different okay they have nothing to
do with each other so if you start understanding a little bit more then
you’re not going to just be like a leaf in the wind and change your mind every
five minutes and you can start making some good decisions for yourself and
your family if you enjoyed this video then make sure you check out that one
and that one thanks so much for watching and I’ll see you next time

100 thoughts on “Real Doctor Reacts To Absurd MCT OIL & COCONUT OIL Claims

  1. Now watch more videos where I react to other misinformation and explain how to get healthy naturally:

  2. The CBC doing its thing again…. rarely worth listening to. Female polarity at CBC dealing in feelings ; feelings trump facts. The media needs filler ; don't question the source. The Black IQ is 85 in the US , lower in Canada. An uncomfortable truth.

  3. The mixture of alcohol and cigarettes, that is totally overlooked. The culprit has been The deadly buildup and mixture of processed carbs and phony fats
    In the body and blood stream💀

  4. I appreciate her video for making me realize how much saturated fat is in coconut oil! 😁 That will be on my table soon!

  5. As always, the main stream media is corrupted, and tell lies. People with weak critical sense believe in everything they say. Sad….

  6. Great explanation of the chains. I have my own Brand of Bath & Body products and have done extensive research on oil properties. Your breakdown of the chains and comparisons are so much easier to understand. Also liked your explanation of the Omegas. Thank you

  7. What we need is someone to make a documentary that exposes the motivations and financiers behind these sorts of misinformation. I bet they will find Big Pharma and Agra. I am certain the broadcaster is not a charity.

  8. The “news” reporter appears to eat a highly inflammatory diet, as evidenced by her big belly and swollen face and neck. Perhaps she might research insulin resistance and the disease process that follows. Just a thought.

  9. Eskimos never had heart disease, cavities etc untill they started eating ths American diet. They ate blubber and were healthy. I told my brainwashed RN daughter. She is still brainwashed and her thinking abilities need fat for her starved brain.

  10. I use coconut oil nothing else in my oats on my toast baking potatoes oh yeah and on my skin. I'm 63 years 63 kg 130/70 blood pressure. Healthy as a mountain goat.

  11. I don't like to judge by appearances, but the actress in your video could and probably would benefit by swapping to coconut oil

  12. Since going Keto a year ago I can actually TELL when my saturated fat intake is too low….

    My skin is dry and flaky, I feel lethargic, I am irritable, I am physically weaker in the gym and I put on belly fat. I have to make a conscious effort to UP my saturated fat intake.

  13. ONE THING I OBJECT TO HERE – is saying listening to EXPERTS is a bad idea. WRONG

    Making national food guideline policy off of ONE study with flawed methodology and even then twisting the results due to lobbying from food manufacturors IS A BAD IDEA

  14. Thank you so much for the latest case study. The more we know the better decisions we make thanks to you.Just wondering .. Is it okay to have Oatmeal with vegetables and eggs as a breakfast option?? Just want something that gets me satiated through the whole day.

  15. The attacks on coconut oil were originally based on the dangers of HYDROGENATED coconut oil. It is widely used in commercially produced popcorn. This fact seems to have gotten lost.

  16. Dr. Ekberg thank you so much for your videos consider myself extremely fortunate to have access to your Warehouse of information, I don't remember if it was real Rogers or Mark Twain who said an expert was the guy from the next town, thought you might appreciate that, thanks again


  18. Truth does not exist. Different perespectives can be looked at to see pros and cons.

    Saturated fat makes the liver produce bile so its not bad for you in moderation.

    Its bad to not consume it on the contrary..

  19. Ha så kokosnöts olja har alltså 19 procent lägre andel av den typ av fett de anser (illa grundat) som farlig!

    Dem köper bara att fett är onyttigt fast det är falskt.

    Kolhydrater och socker gör dig fet exempelvis naturliga fetter gör det inte.

  20. Yes coconut oil has saturated fats, but it’s HEALTHY SATURATED FAT, unlike your fake toxic margarines the fat cats cancer producing TWATS wants us to eat regular, that gets their mates richer in the medic industry that then test their toxic tablets on our system.

  21. Anything REFINED out of its natural state, I would advise to be VERY VERY WAREY OF. Usually fine these things have some sort of cancer related or Disease related issues with the body, after prolonged regular use.

  22. I NEVER cook with canola- makes a great soap though! Great video- I tend not to pay attention to these kinds of “reports”… “experts” are wishy-washy

  23. I've been buying virgin coconut oil by the 5 gallon pal for 15+ years.
    I've been in bodybuilding, weightlifting for over 30 years, competed in the Worlds in 2008.
    I haven't been sick or needed any prescription drugs. My blood pressure is normal.
    My wife loves MCT oil in her coffee. It helps her focus on her work which requires a lot of computer screen time and thinking.
    I studied virgin coconut oil years before that 2003 study listed here.
    Coconut oil and MCT are fantastic for your health in MANY ways.

  24. Cannot blame the lady doing the demo, she is working to feed her family. It is up to us users to find more info. But the best guide I would follow is , moderation in everything.

  25. The reporter and the Chanel should be sued and prosecuted in my opinion. Shameless they are and it turns my stomach.
    I subbed because you explain it so well and care enough to do this video. Thank you!

  26. So if from nature it is good for you but if from stores it has been changed from the way God made it to make money. We must learn to recognize fake news.

  27. I gots nothing for these so called medical experts that live lavishly off our ignorance. They all sat by & watch us being slowly poisoned by their mad scientists/ big pharma & medical industrial complex. Don’t listen to none of them. They mix lies with truth. Watch their hand gestures/ freemasonry as they secretly communicate among themselves, believing the masses are largely idiots.

  28. Hello Dr. Ekberg. Thank you for such a great informative video. Could you make a video on sugar consumption for kids? I believe more than one would agree that adults giving sugar to kids as reward. The internet speaks for 25g sugar or 6 spoons is the limit. In my eyes that is too much. What is your opinion?

  29. freedom starts only when you start thinking for your self . all that is taught in life to us is to be taken with a grain of salt . we are surrounded by lies because of greed agendas or just because of plain stupidity. it is not just because the majority think one way that it is the truth.

  30. Different lengths of saturated fats have different effects on the body. Palmitic acid, blocks the LDL receptor in the liver, thus causing an increased production and higher levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood.

    With too much cholesterol it is the same as having too high of a blood sugar.
    But instead of having the high levels of sugar (fructose and especially galactose are terrible) glycating proteins and basically leading to cell damage, the higher levels of cholesterol, will lead to oxidization of the cholesterol it self (then it will it lead to cell damage) and will inhibit proper receptor function, because cell membranes get stiffer the more cholesterol they have in them.
    Receptors need an adequate fluidity of the membrane to function properly.

    Humans in the past didn`t have access to high fat animals, where the fat has a ratio of oleic acid to palmitic acid of 1:1,
    but instead to lean animals, in those fat source was bone marrow, which has a ratio of oleic acid to palmitic acid of 3:1.

  31. I have read that lard is also one of the healthiest fats., do you agree? I also read some reports on a negative effect of saturated fats on the brain and brain-functions, but that doesn't make sense to me.
    The msm are aware that it isn't bad, because the science is out there, why the attack through the media? To dumb down the masses through malnutrition?


  33. well, I'd like to share a personal experience, considering this topic. a year ago, I got very sick – started as mononucleosis, but in the process of medical testing, doctors discovered hashimoto thyroiditis, too. I'm living in china for 5 years now, and it's more than challenging finding adequate medical help here, from western point of view. I got lucky, I started my treatment in an international clinic with truly great team of doctors. they haven't put me on thyroxine medication, they suggested ketogenic diet for 6 months instead, and I excepted that. I was on clean, supervised keto for half a year (and yes, I was using a lot of supplements during that time , such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, milk thistle, B complex 100mg, collagen, high protein powder, D3, etc…). I was on high quality meat and mostly green veggies, with lots of nuts and very high amounts of raw coconut, mct and olive oils (around 5 tablespoons a day). No milk and dairy, no processed food, no fruits or high carb veggies, no grain. My diet was actually high in calories, due to oil and nuts consumption (through oils alone, I was taking up to 1000 cal). 2 months later – I was back working 13 hours a day, 4 months later – I was 15 kg lighter, I had no high blood pressure anymore (use to have hypertension for 10 years, even with medication), no more allergies, no prediabetic state, no high cholesterol, my thyroid hormones normal. It's like somebody gave me another youth again. so, coconut oil not only didn't hurt my health, but it helped me go through my healing process as comfortable as possible. today, I'm bouncing between keto and low carb nutrition (but never over 70g of carbs per day), and I'm feeling great. I will never go back to typical western nutrition, I like my health state now, and I want to keep it as long, as possible. maybe someone finds this useful. cheers!

  34. Man, although I don't want to consider eating meat anymore, at least for now, I love your videos, even if they are a tat long 🙂
    Thank you so much for your effort

  35. Surely 'experts' couldn't be this ignorant. It's almost like the diet recommendations from the 'experts' are part of a plan to ruin everyone's health so that we have to buy their expensive medications, etc. Just a bunch of crooks.

  36. If it was me I would have said "Excellent!… cocconut oil is VERY efficient, because you only need 1 spoon compared to the other fats. Thanks for that… I will buy some more. Cheers!"

  37. Im 77 and for the last 5 yrs i consume a pint a wk ,never felt better and dropped around 45 pds ,
    I ride my motorcycle every day now again , because I can and was too weak to doso before
    Nectar of the gods my thought

  38. Side note,I raise performance dogs for the military, I add beef fat to their diet and they lost body fat, and added muscle. About 2 out of 3 military personal are not fit for deployment. IMO the military dogs are not fit for deployment because of bad breeding and diet. I breed a hybrid dog in the Death Valley area of Nevada.

  39. The "news" story is just an example of the logical fallacy of appeal to authority. It's clearly biased. One more example of why news should not be trusted. Verify and do your own research before believing fluff pieces like that CBC story.

  40. Thanks so much and appreciate your information which is very clearly pointed out in detail without confusing. 👍👍👍🌹🌹🙏🙏😇😇😃😃

  41. where does the budget come from to fund the CBC? The CANADIAN GOVERNMENT (the CBC has NEVER been profitable and the people who work there are essentially public servants. Crappy content, pedestrian production quality… NOBODY even watches ANY program produced or aired on CBC 😉

  42. What essential fatty acid supplement do you recommend? It’s all so confusing and often contradictory, but as a new subscriber, I look forward to learning more. Thank you.

  43. This is an exceptional;y informative video @Dr. Sten Ekberg. Thank you for breaking down the information. Will certainly share with many friends!

  44. We use coconut oil or butter only on all our eating and cooking needs. They want depopulation and one way is poison people with cooking oils that are poison. CORN OILS, and other oils that the American heart association is getting paid millions for sponsored food products by big corporations. It's all about money. You please keep up the great work and information. Thank goodness for honest people who expose corruption in food products. Sincerely, Steve and Karen

  45. Welp, if you get your coconut oil from coconuts you picked up off the back yard and your idea of a good time is a several miles' walk, then yeah, it's really healthy.

  46. just eat the whole foods …… just how mother nature has provided us …….. eat the olives and coconuts ……. not the oils ………. simple .
    end of discussion .
    want to cook then do it with a little butter or ghee .

  47. Only the WHITE CHRISTIAN WEST has been doing "RESEARCH" to "prove"that whatever the NATIVES OF WHEREVER THEY LIVE & HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO MAKE A DENT.They are, in the WEST WHITE CHRISTIAN WORLD HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY & so is the FOOD INDUSTRY. They are ONLY ABOUT taking money from all in the world coming INTO THEIR POCKET & ENSLAVING THE WORLD ONCE AGAIN.I DO NOT go by what they say… I go with MY GENETIC WISDOM accumulated over milenia, I even today stick with what I grew up with: Ghee, Mustard oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, peanut oil, the oils that we went to the crusher which was a kind of a humungus stone mortar & a pestle turned by bullocks to crush the seeds to get the oil (EXTRA VIRGIN COLD PRESS, NO PROCESSING). wHAT SEEDS WE used for crushing to get our oil? WHICH EVER was grown BY THE LOCAL FARMERS.

  48. The ORIGINAL name of Canla was RAPESEED. It is a cousin of the mustard, but the oil is much more pungnt than Mustard oil, & not good for human consumption. In Punjab (India) where it was cultivated, its vernacular names were TARAMIRA & TORIYA, & it was considered for making industrial oils, Even cottonseed oil was considered UNHEALTHY FOR HUMANS & WAS NOT consumed by humans, Then the removed the cokor & flavor from EVERY THING & called it HEALTHY. Ever since the health "INDUSTRY" & the food INDUSTRY began to CONTROL THE people's minds & the people were convinced that the mummified foods that the industry was manufacturing were THE ONLY HEALTHY ONES, the diseases & obesity has been going u ALONG WITH POVERTY

  49. I think every single member of the general public the reporter was trying to frighten about saturated fat was far thinner than the reporter herself. She should have been asking them what they ate for her own health.

  50. Thanks for that video. Very clearly explained. I'm from Poland and can't say i am even intermediate in english but i understood nearly everything.
