8. Plenty of Good Fats Make You Very Healthy
Coconut is considered a rather “exotic” food in the Western world and is consumed primarily by health-conscious people. In some parts of the world, however, coconut is a staple food that has been cultivated for many generations. The Tokelauans living in the South Pacific, for example, get over 60% of their caloric intake from coconut, making them the largest consumers of saturated fat in the world. They enjoy excellent health and also show no signs of heart disease.
