"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

What I enjoyed most about this book outside learning about palm oil, is how much I learned about fats and how fats interact with the human body (this is coming from someone who's been following a ketogenic diet for 16 months now). I always knew natural saturated fats were healthy for our organism, but the author explains well why we need a combination of all three fatty acids (saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated), and the proper ratio to consume these fats for optimal health.
If you're a health nut or just want to start learning more about the power of natural foods/nutrition, I would highly recommend reading this book and even doing some research or reading a book on coconut oil - among other aspects of nutrition (fruits, veggies, fish oil, etc.). This author did write a book on coconut oil but I have not read it yet; judging from this book though I bet it would be equally as informative.
-Great nutritional book
-Covers fats extremely well
-Teaches you how vital natural fats are for the entire human body
"Mr. Coconut Miracle", and the author of the instant classic "Saturated Fat May Save Your Life" has hit another "grand slam" with The Palm Oil Miracle.
Few people in the US of A know anything about Palm Oil - and how GREAT it is for our health.
Instantly dispelling the lies we've been "fed" by the Vegetable Oil industry, Consumer "Advocate" Groups and the medical establishement about how saturated fat (there's more than one) clogs our arteries & raises cholesterol, we learn that Palm Oil is full of heart FRIENDLY nutrients, such as Carotenoids and "Super vitamin E" (Tocotrienols) as well as CoQ10 and other wonderful substances. These nutrients go far beyond just being heart-friendly, too (brain, eyes, immune system, bones, joints, skin, etc.)
We also learn how Palm Oil contains the same exact ratios of fats (saturated,monounsaturated, polyunsaturated) found inside the trillions of cells in HEALTHY humans, and why it is the perfect substitute for hydrogenated / trans-fat-laden vegetable oils for cooking, baking and frying virtually any foods (you can even make HEALTHY donuts with it - no kidding!).
Once you learn the scientific FACTS about Palm Oil, you will run to your local health food store / "natural" supermarket and start using it every day for the rest of your life.
Thank you, Dr. Fife, for another "jewel" of a health book. Can't wait to see what you've got in store for us with your next book!
P.S. - Nutritional supplements made with "Super vitamin E" (Tocotrienols) from un-refined palm oil are available from companies such as Jarrow Formulas and Life Extension Foundation.
