Health News Digest: Is Coconut Oil ‘Pure Poison’?

We bring the latest in health news. According to Karin Michels, an epidemiologist at the Harvard TH Chan school of public health, coconut oil is ‘pure poison’ and one of the worst foods you can eat. Michels’ lecture, which is available on YouTube in its original German language and was translated by Business Insider, has been viewed more than 1 million times. We revisit the coconut oil debate.
