Saturated fat vers Co. oil

Have any of you researched current diets? I've read that we should stay away from sat. fat. But that comes from a book 5 yrs old. I believe that Coconut oil is more nutritious than Olive oil. I can take 2 ts of C. oil in the morning with my Tecfidera and feel fine. If I take Olive oil instead, I feel sick. My meds require fat. But I've read ANY sat. fat is bad.

some ramblings

I went back to my university this summer and thought I would do some reading on MS. My school has one of the ten largest libraries in the US with about 12 million volumes and is connected to a high ranking medical school. We had about 750 books on MS. But, I couldn't believe this, only about six or so were in the actual library...the rest, even recently published ones, were in an off-site storage ...
