Tja, ved og ved… Jeg har ikke nogen ekspertviden på området.
Men altid når alternative behandlere hævder at deres produkt kan hjælpe på stort set alt bliver jeg meget skeptisk.

Ikke nok med at det kan hjælpe mod alle infektioner (inklusive HIV) og hjælpe mod cancer, men man får glat hud, bliver slank, får opløst sine nyresten og får mindre skæl! Og det er overhodet ikke farligt for mennesker, selvfølgelig.
Dette får mit Bullshit-o-meter™ til at lyse op i hvert tilfælde.
Endvidere siger de at den har færre kalorier end alt andet fedt. Hmm.

Og angående de antibiotiske virkninger, så kan man læse følgende i en af de mere seriøse artikler på siden (som kun omhandler kokospalmen i en biologisk sammenhæng, uden at tale om evt. medicinske effekter):

Mærkeligt at en plante der er den bedste naturlige antibiotika skulle blive ramt af en stribe forskellige bakterielle og virale sygdomme samt mykoser og parasit-angreb.

Ingen tvivl om at kokosnødder og -palmer er en fantastisk ting, med mange anvendelsesområder indenfor føde, byggematerialer, brænde etc. men det er ingen grund til at kamme fuldstændig over.

Lol nej undskyld, jeg har ikke sat mig ind i området overhovedet men sådan noget der kan jeg bare ikke tage seriøst, overhovedet, det siger sig selv at det er en gang vrøvl, hvis bare halvdelen af det der passede kunne man ligeså godt afløse syghusvæsenet med en kokusnød om dagen, jeg ville tage kokus-nødforskerne omtrent lige så seriøst som de mails jeg dagligt for hvor folk lover mig 24-timers konstant erektion med diverse medikamenter -.-
