Palm kennel oil consumption prevents diseases

Reputable Ghanaian scientist Dr. Kaku Kyiamah has disclosed that using palm kernel oil into regular meals will help ward off conditions like diabetes, piles, skin issues, vision issues, migraines, and stillbirths.

He added that numerous other conditions might also be avoided, including high blood pressure, infertility, autism, asthma, arthritis, menstruation symptoms, cramps, and many more.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency on Tuesday, Dr. Kyiamah stated that palm kernel oil was utilized by Ghanaians for many centuries, but that “we started to abandon palm kernel oil as a component of food and medical protocols” in the 1960s.

He claimed that the outcome was to blame for the sharp rise in unusual illnesses that are currently prevalent, such as attention deficit syndrome and problems having children.

He referred to Palm Kennel oil as the “miraculous oil of our ancestors,” saying it was once used to treat ulcers, especially those after male circumcision, and is now mostly used to make soap and fried food.

“While we import large quantities of “unhealthy trans-fat” edible oils for food. Palm kernel oil, like its relative coconut oil, can serve as a functional food and medicine.  This is illustrated by how modern medicine is using derivatives of milk, palm kernel oil and coconut oil to improve the quality of life and the health of many people”, he added.

Palm kernel oil he said had about 50 per cent of saturated lauric acid,  the active ingredient of Lauricidin, which the United States Food and Drugs Authority  had approved for the treatment of genital herpes, hepatitis C and HIV.

“Lauricidin is also used for the management of epilepsy, autism and many other metabolic and neural ailments”, he added.

Dr Kyiamah explained that palm kernel oil had about 3.6 per cent of saturated caprylic acid, which was the most potent natural yeast fighting substance and being used in drugs such as caprinex, capricin, mycostat and caprystatin.

He noted that palm kernel oil also had about 60 per cent of medium chain saturated fatty acids, which were often used as intravenous (IV) infusion to improve extensively the health of premature babies and very young children with acute respiratory syndrome.

“Women and girls who eat meals containing palm kernel oil normal have painless and regular menses whilst lactating mothers who eat meals with palm kernel oil tend to have rich breast milk”.

Dr Kyiamah encouraged Ghanaians to adopt the use and consumption of  palm kernel oil for food and other health purposes to reduce the importation of “disease bearing trans-fat” poly-unsaturated vegetable fats including margarines and shortening resulting in savings in foreign exchange expenditure.

“If we are able to use it religiously, it will also help prevent and effectively manage lifestyle diseases including headaches; improve in the overall health status of the whole population as well as potentially, increase in the export of tropical fats”.
