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.

goats milk?

any thoughts. I am dairy free. I hate the taste. But I saw some lady on youtube who claimed it helped her MS. I know it has selenium, helps with copper absorption, and is similar to human milk. I think being dairy free has been central to my good health. I follow the Swank diet by limited animal fats (not oils or healthy fats so much). Anybody drink this stuff?
