Hey everyone! It's Joanna, Dr. Mary's daughter, and I'm now on messenger duty! I just wanted to let you know that I am working on writing back to all of you and there are a lot of messages so please do not lose hope. If it's been longer than 3 months please message me again and you have my sincere apologies.
Keep adding your friends and family to three group. Together we can show everyone that coconut oil is NOT poison but rather greatly enhances your life. 💛

RESPONSE TO NEW MEDIA HYPE/MISINFORMATION ABOUT COCONUT OIL. Coconut Oil is NOT Poison!!
The media rushed to spread misinformation about coconut oil by quoting a lecturer who presented in Germany and, in a brief statement, said "coconut oil is pure poison". The lecturer Karin Michels is a PART-TIME professor at Harvard and has a PhD in Biostatistics. She mostly works at UCLA and also in Germany. She is not a physician or nutrition scientist and none of her published articles as listed on the Harvard faculty website contain a serious analysis of the questions about coconut oil. The media should consider the source before spreading this type of misinformation. Here is my response which was taped yesterday with Dr. Ryan Lowery In Tampa, Florida.

COCONUT OIL IS NOT POISON!!There is a Harvard Study out with findings that Coconut Oil is "poison." We got together with the foremost expert on the topic. Dr. Mary Newport to debunk th...
