Pros and Cons on Coconut Oil

Today I am grieving the loss of a special young lady--age 2 years and 8 months. I remember when her parents and this toddler came to help with our yard sale in the fall of 2009. Her dad drove with my husband and Jake to deliver some furniture when my husband was still driving. I asked the young dad later what it was like to be in a car with two men with Alzheimer's; he told me it was weird when these husbands kept asking him the same question over and over. He was such a gentleman about it. Pray for the grieving parents now and for us as we grieve with them. Sad time, but not without our Christian hope.

Alzheimer's Reading Room on Coconut Oil  I commented here today and often read the Alzheimer's Reading Room. Lots of good information here.

Dr. Mercola on U-Tube explains that the saturated fat of coconut oil is good for us. It is hydrogenated vegetable oil and transfat that is not. I tend to notice that we don't get some of the viruses and colds that others get.

I wrote on Plant City Lady and Friends in April about oil. Dr. Mary Newport's video on coconut oil is the most popular one on this blog so far.

  1. So sorry about the death of the child....I'll keep everyone in my prayers.

  2. That little girl's death was such a tragedy. May God use it to his glory and the good of his people.

  3. Dolores and Ruby, thanks for praying for this family. I have to remind my husband repeatedly what happened in her death (she hit her head and went into a coma and died less than two days later). I am grieving with this family and also grieving having to keep retelling the story to a husband who is losing neurons in his brain. Keep praying for the family and their extended family. Our pastor and others from our church will go to the funeral in Dallas.

  4. What a terribly sad thing to happen.
