This review is not really about the content. I think the content is great. I believe in the coconut oil miracle. Yet, when comparing the 5th edition (2013) to the 4th edition (2004) I see basically no changes. I bought the 5th hoping there would be new research, new proof, new conclusions. I was disappointed.
I found no new forward or introduction. One website added to the Resources section. The Product section was dropped. In References (chapter bibliographies) I found only a few new entries in one chapter (Coconut Oil as Food and as Medicine) which did not seem significant. The book contained the same 50 recipes. The 5th edition has more pages (more readable with more white space) and a nice new cover.
In general I suggest the 4th edition is a better buy.
Strangely both editions are available from the same publisher at this time.
This book is both informative and honest. Although I find it difficult to simply take two spoons of extra virgin coconut oil with hot water each morning, I found an easier method: 100% Certified Organic Expeller Pressed Extra Virgin Coconut Oil 1000 mg softgels by Jarrow Formulas. I have taken four softgels each morning for the past 8 months. And, all of my chronic and severe allergies have vanished. I have not had the chronic sore throats, whooping coughs, bronchitis, walking pnemonia (sp?), and so forth.
I cook with Certified Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (USDA ORGANIC) by Nutraceutical Sciences Institute for potentially sweet dishes. Both and more products are available at vitacost.com for the best prices!
For salt-based dishes, I still use Extra, Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Grapeseed Oil.
But then at first after a few days, I seemed to have developed a problem with dry red eyes while I was using coconut oil in my morning tea and discontinued drinking it with the eyes going back to normal. After thinking about it, I then decided to keep using it on my skin at night and it is doing great to improve some issues such as dryness, wrinkling and lightening dark spots. I am also now taking Caprylic Acid softgels, a product related to coconut oil recommended in the book for intenstinal health purposes.
My eyes became dry and red again when I took the coconut oil soft gels, so I seem to be restricted to the program I am on now. However, I am allergic to a lot of things that other people get along well with, so this does not mean others should not try them.
I have always loved the taste of coconut, probably one reason I wanted to read the book. Having the product for my skin and intestinal health would be more than worth the purchase and time reading the book.
Need proof that we have been agregiously lied to about fats for over 100 years? All the science & all the history is covered in Sally Fallon Morell's latest (2017) & greatest book Nourishing Fats.
