Ever since turning primal coconut oil has been a consistent part of my diet, but I just came across a quote on this site that otherwise seems to be spot on in their information:
Does anyone have any insight to this topic and whether or not this man's opinion is valid?

I just think the guy is wrong for a number of reasons, but hey, that's just me.
