Thanks for the link, it made a good point and showed how stats can be manipulated to suit the situation.
I'll take inner happiness with some butter everytime against highly processed spreads.
Cheers now :D)

Really I dont like so much coconut oil. But when finally I was thinking in buy to some recipes I find but really expensive. So I use vegetal oil only in little amounts, usually a bottle is for a month here .

It's a shame that consumers really have to be on their toes these days. I always try to read original research.

I always tell people to follow the money, he who pays the piper names the tune. So many so called health organisations are pay-rolled by junk food or big pharma, often both. The message is simple eat whole natural food from the farm or the sea, not some giant food companies failed science experiment.

How easy is that.

Every year different studies come out and either are really bad for you or are really good for you and then it flip flops the next year. I tried cooking with coconut oil over a year ago and I didn't like it so I don't use it. I don't use margarine but I do use butter and olive oil because I like them.
