Coconut oil is not healthier, American Heart Association warns

Turns out coconut oil may not be healthier for you. In fact, it might be worse.

The American Heart Association is warning the oil is very high in saturated fat— even more than butter, even lard.

Saturated fat raises your bad cholesterol, and could lead to cardiovascular disease.

They say cooking with less saturated fat, period, is the best way to go.
