Re: Coconut oil!

From a cooking perspective, Coconut oil has an extremely low 'smoke point' of around 177f which is the same as butter. This leaves it with fairly limited uses for cooking with heat. (Palm oil is 232F).

Popcorn pops at 212F (boiling point of water) so there is no way anyone was using coconut oil to pop popcorn without burning it.

Re: Coconut oil!

I use avocado oil for hot cooking. But its hard to find the good stuff and a reasonable price.

I love the smell and flavor of coconut oil.

Re: Coconut oil!

I use avocado oil too. But I do cook eggs and low carb pancakes in coconut oil.

The oil will remain in a thin film.
Same applies to the pimples/spots.. apply to the area and leave for half hour before rinsing off.
Works for this blue eyed fair skinned guy

for small area's dip finger tip in oil then Tumeric powder and rub into area, it will sting if its an open sore but.. that means its working..

I'm not sure I understand why you rub it all over before swimming. Is it some sort of sun block also?

SKIN CANCER
A study found that curcumin caused melanoma cells to commit suicide. Topical curcumin has shown promise in fighting squamous cell carcinoma.
MULTIPLE MYELOMA
A French study published in 2014 in Cancer Biology & Therapy found that several different multiple myeloma cell lines were sensitive to curcumin. The study authors concluded that the results indicate more clinical trials are worth doing on curcumin and multiple myeloma. MD Anderson Cancer Research Center at the University of Texas has been studying the effects of curcumin on multiple myeloma for several years. For an interesting anecdotal story of a woman with multiple myeloma who has been keeping her cancer at bay for years using MD Andersonís curcumin protocol, check out Margaretís Corner.
METASTASIS PREVENTION
Multiple studies have found that one of the most exciting health benefits of turmeric is the prevention of metastasis, the spread of cancer from the primary site to other areas of the body
NATURAL PAINKILLER & ANTI-INFLAMMATORY
Curcumin is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor. One study compared curcumin to ibuprofen for pain relief in knee osteoarthritis patients and found that the curcumin worked just as well as ibuprofen. Several studies have found that curcumin has potent anti-inflammatory properties. According to the Arthritis Foundation, several studies have found turmeric to be effective at reducing joint inflammation and pain, with one of the studies even finding curcumin to be better at reducing pain and swelling in patients with rheumatoid arthritis than diclofenac, an NSAID that is commonly prescribed for people with RA.
ANTIBACTERIAL
Several studies have found that curcumin has antibacterial properties and is useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.
Blending it with coconut oil triggers the active agents and applying it sunbathing seems a natural thing to do..
Also the oil stops things entering the open pores when swimming.
Hey.. what have I got to lose..

Good to know, I use both fresh and dry turmeric in curries a lot.


I don't know why I started, but I've recently been adding it to the water when boiling rice. Maybe my sub-conscious was telling me something.

Re: Coconut oil!

Bulletproof coffee (although we use MCT oil instead of Coconut oil) and a Keto diet combined produce a 35# weight loss in less than 4 months and never felt like a diet

Sorry but this is BS. the cargo holds are always pressurised, they are part of the fuselage which you will notice is round in section and is the pressure vessel.
They are however often not heated to the same temp as the passenger cabin.

Re: Coconut oil!

It is just oil.

Not much different from mineral 15-40.

Unless you subscribe to the abiotic oil hypothesis, so does mineral oil.

It's just taken a while.
