Default Coconut Oil

There has been a campaign recently to brand Coconut Oil as having just as much fat as butter, therefore not any healthier.

Today, this from Dr. Mercola's FB page "‎50% of the fat content in coconut oil is lauric acid which your body converts into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-protozoa properties. Coconut oil is about 2/3 medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which produce a whole host of health benefits, including stimulating your metabolism. MCFA's are also immediately converted to energy so like avocados, coconut oil is an ideal replacement for carbs."

Thoughts?
