We pray that all our readers had a safe and magnificent Independence Day holiday yesterday. We certainly did — and managed to stay cool in spite of the temps in excess of 100° F. We were delighted to be invited to dinner and fellowship last night with some good friends just a few miles away.
During the course of the great meal they prepared for us, the topic of coconut oil came up. Apparently, there had been a recent article in the paper saying how unsafe it is to use coconut oil. As you might expect, the article was written by a fairly well known doctor, and we all know that the wearing of a white coat topped off with a stethoscope casually draped around the neck automatically makes one an expert.
Coconut oil is indeed controversial. Just do a quick Internet search and you’ll see the broad range of dogmatic positions on this topic. As our readers undoubtedly know, we at The Coaching Pair are strongly in support of the health benefits of this God-given, miracle oil.
Coincidentally, Natural News recently posted a very innovative and fun graphic outlining the many benefits of coconut oil which we have reproduced below. Enjoy!
Do you remember the Marlboro Man? Maybe you’re a bit young, but the rugged cowboy smoking a Marlboro cigarette was an ubiquitous icon from 1954 – 1999. According to Wikipedia, that campaign by Philip Morris & Co (now Altria [only the names have been changed to protect the ???]) is widely hailed as one of the most brilliant advertising campaigns of all time. Turns out that all the rugged cowboys who portrayed the Marlboro Man died of lung cancer. Go figure.
In spite of the fact that smoking is no longer the political “hot button” that it once was, according to the infographic below, there are still 1.1 billion people in the world that don’t get it. And the frightening stat, in my mind, is that 1,000 youths under the age of 18 start smoking every day. This tells us that the problem is not going to go away any time soon. Prepare to be shocked as you read through the graphic presentation of cigarette smoking statistics below provided to us by OnlineNursingPrograms.com.
