      I know that coconut oil is not good for “B” blood types. What about Macadamia Oil, it also has a very high heating threshold? Does anyone know what would be better rice bran oil, olive oil or macadamia oil?

      Some brands of coconut oil are better than others. Dr. Mercola recommends “Fresh Shores Coconut Oil” but there are other good ones too. Some of the others I think would be good are “Tropical Traditions”, “Jungle Brand” and “Nutivia”. All these seem to get there oil from traditional coconut groves and use only fresh coconuts.

      Most people are cooking with olive oil, then eating burnt oil thinking it is healthy. I am afraid not. Now if we are talking olive oil on a teaspoon, or on a salad, then I say fabulous.

      Ancient Chinese secret, Peanut oil. You can heat your pan way over 400deg, or even fry with it. I would rather have an oil that has a high flash point then eating carcinogens. Peanut oil is also very good for your heart, it has an ingredient in it.
