Coco-nutty miracle cure claims

As many people will know I have contempt for people offering miracle cures, particularly those for serious disorders like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and, most importantly of all, HIV/AIDS.

On Facebook recently some remarkable claims were made for coconut oil.

He elaborated further.

And there was more.

And then the big one. The big lie.

As far as I can establish, there is no credible scientific evidence that coconut oil can offer any of these health claims. While it might be good for your skin, it's not a miracle cure. If it was, people would have earned Nobel Prizes for medicine by now.

It's a lie.
