Harvard Prof Says Coconut Oil Is ‘Pure Poison’. Look how Indians reacted
We have been consuming coconut oil in different ways such as hair oil, body oil and many a times in cooking also. It has been giving good results since ages.
Recently a Harvard professor in his research claims that coconut is pure poison. Indians on the internet who get easily offended were not happy reading it.
In a YouTube video named as ’kokosöl und andere Ernährungsirrtümer’ (which translates to coconut oil and other nutritional errors), Karin Michels- adjunct professor of epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health- called it ‘poison’ few times
This video was uploaded on July 10 and since then it has got 1 million views. The video has many views but we are sure not many are enjoying it.
As the comments were disabled for the video the unpleased Indian didn’t leave it their and took it to Twitter to show their displeasure.
Then South Indians are Shiva. https://t.co/6xCwDoMRpG

Yes, Coconut Oil is pure poison. People should change their food habit and consume more of Subway sandwiches, McDonald burgers, KFC chicken products & wash them down with Coca-Cola & PepsiCo drinks to improve on their nourishment, health and longevity.

Coconut oil is poison. Neem is not a good enough pesticide but now it’s patented as one. Yoga promotes Hinduism. Ghee is bad for your cholesterol.
Even our basmati rice has American patent on it.
Are we really this dumb to not see how this works?

We’ve always used coconut oil in moderation. The west took it to extremes and started putting it in everything and basically overdoing it, as they do with all fads. Indian wisdom has always told us that ANYTHING in excess is poison.

Step 1: claim coconut oil is poison & kill market
Step 2: sell us some junk substitute
Step 3: patent coconut oil
Step 4: say oops, junk substitute is actually toxic
Step 5: sell us coconut oil
We've seen this kind of cycle before. Wiser now
