Medical Coconut oil for Alzheimer's and Dementia?

  1. Jan 4, 2013 #1
    I've got a video here from CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network). Yes it's a horrible source and it appears fishy, but I am intrigued if there is any truth because in the video a professor from Oxford seems to support it's claims (at some level).
