They Said Coconut Oil Was Great For You, BUT This is What They Didn’t Tell You

While traveling through Thailand, my partner and I joked about buying a coconut plantation because it seems that everything now-a-days is coconut based! Let’s see, you’ve got coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut shreds, coconut water, coconut milk and cream, coconut flour, and even coconut soy sauce (try it, it’s actually delicious)!
Coconut (C. Nucifera) belongs to the Arecaceae (Palmae) family and the subfamily Cocoideae.
The flesh of the coconut is very high in healthy fatty acids (1). The composition of fat varies depending on the type and processing of the oil. Medium-chain saturated fatty acids make up approximately 90% of coconut oil with a slight contribution of mono-unsaturated fatty acids and poly-unsaturated fatty acids.

What’s So Good About Medium Chain Fatty Acids?

Medium-chain saturated fatty acids (MCFA’s) are easily digested, absorbed, and utilized by the body, while freely crossing the blood-brain barrier in the unbound form, which means it can be used by the brain as an energy source but also for neurological health. (source)
What’s also great is that virgin (unrefined) coconut oil is affordable, readily available, delicious and completely natural. It’s also…
  • Anti-carcinogenic (prevents the spread of cancer cells and enhances the immune system)
  • Anti-inflammatory (source)
  • Anti-microbial/ Infection-fighting (bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi, parasites and protozoa)
  • An antioxidant (protects against free-radical formation and damage)
  • Improves nutrient absorption (easily digestible; makes fat-based vitamins more available to the body – ie. vitamin A, D, E, K)
  • Nontoxic to humans and animals

The FBI Now Considers Animal Abuse A Felony. This Brilliant News Will Make Your Day!

Not only are animal activists celebrating, animal lovers are also extremely thrilled at the recent news that the FBI has put animal cruelty on the same page as homicide and arson. That’s right, animal cruelty has finally been listed as a felony.

Neglect, intentional abuse and torture, organized abuse (dog fighting), and sexual abuse.
The data will be entered into the public database that the FBI uses for record keeping of national crimes called the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). They announced doing this in 2014, but it is just this month where the collecting of data has been taking place, and it will be made public in the coming months.
Not only will this new change deter animal abuses from occurring, it can also point out people who may perform violent acts in the future as studies have shown that violent criminals (nearly 70%) actually start out by abusing animals.
While already a felony in 13 states and in D.C., animal abuse was thrown in with miscellaneous crimes thus the patterns of animal abuse based crimes were impossible to properly get a handle on.
Now they can track these cases of animal abuse. It’s a major shift in policy and one that many believe to be a massively positive step forward.
