Recently, the topic of palm oil came up. It seems that in western countries (Australia included), it is considered an established fact that palm oil is bad for health. I don't see it that way. The cool dudes and damsel did acknowledge that previously coconut oil had had a bad rep, but that now many good properties of coconut oil have been published.
What's the general view on palm oil here? I'm curious if there's going to be a clear difference between the Malaysian/Asian and "western" views :-)
