After recognizing the undeniable evidence supporting the healthy effects of coconut oil, the FDA wants a piece of it. This is only the beginning...
Dr. Bronner's Coconut Oil label: "Clinical research confirms that the saturated medium chain fatty acids (MCT's) in [Virgin Coconut Oil], such as lauric acid, actually improve blood cholesterol by increasing the ratio of HDL to LDL cholesterol."
The FDA's stance: This simple statement suggests that extra-virgin coconut oil is a "drug", as only drugs are capable of affecting human health. Dr. Bronner's is engaging in the sale and distribution of an illegal drug.
This isn't a statement; it's a peer-reviewed, scientific fact. Coconut oil has many amazing benefits on the body, as does organic, real, whole foods. If everything that affects the body/human health is considered to be a drug by the FDA, then I guess we're all on drugs.
Moral of the story: if it's not FDA-approved, there may be a high possibility that it's good for you.
