Yes, I am right and there are evidences out there that can prove my point. Refined oils are generally processed oil and has high content of unsaturated fats. If we compare 100gm of sunflower oil and coconut oil, sunflower oil has approximately 90% unsaturated fat whereas coconut oil has only 8-10% unsaturated fat. Unsaturated fat is not good for your heart and hence should be avoided whereas saturated fat contained in coconut oil is good for your heart and health and can be consumed on a daily basis without any side effects. The more healthy your heart is, the more productive you will be.
