Associate Professor Colquhoun
A leading heart health expert has
backed oily fish or fish
supplements as vital while
dismissing claims about the health
benefits of coconut and krill oil.
Associate Professor David
Colquhoun, a cardiologist at the
University of Queensland School
of Medicine, along with Wesley
and Greenslopes private hospitals,

the risk of heart disease.
''With over 90 per cent saturated
fat I would definitely be keeping
coconut oil off the menu.''
According to a report published
in the American Journal of Clinical
Nutrition, the professor's findings
support studies following a
specific methodological process
occurring in reports published
between January 1970 and

studies were required to be 17
years or older, have a thoroughly
controlled food intake and
constant cholesterol intake.
