Coconut oil may alter metabolism and cause obesity, mouse study finds

The findings support the hypothesis that a diet high in saturated fatty acids can lead to leptin resistance. At the same time as leptin resistance is developing, the body’s fat storage tissue, known as white adipose tissue, also becomes less responsive to leptin.

Is coconut oil healthy? A study found that it disrupted mice’s ability to use leptin and insulin, two critical hormones, and as a result, may lead to diabetes and obesity.
