For several years, Dr. Newport was everywhere touting the near miracle that happened with her Alzheimer's afflicted husband Steve when she started giving him coconut oil. She did a video with Pat Robertson that attracted over 5 million viewers. She wrote a book -- Alzheimer's Disease: What If There Were A Cure? -- gave interviews, did other video. Others climbed on the bandwagon which resulted in a coconut-oil craze among the afflicted and their families as well as the rest of us who want to ward off this dreadful disease. Then suddenly -- a year of silence amid reports that Steve had suffered health setbacks. Now she's back with a post on her blog that clearly indicates she's no longer promoting coconut oil as a cure for AD. She also reports on what's been going on with Steve. His AD history doesn't make much of a case for coconut oil as a cure. For the text of her post and some comments by me, see bit.ly/1twi4Cm
