What does the Mary Enig and Sally Fallon regime mean for the typical Asian diet? Well, if you like traditional Chinese cooking, you can have a ball. Rich, fried food is quite acceptable to these diet revolutionaries. If they're right, you can order crispy pork or Kung Pao chicken. If you like Thai, it's good news also. That Thai staple, coconut oil, is crawling with saturated fat, which is music to Enig and Fallon's ears. Enig and Fallon cite a 1981 study of that inhabitants of the South Pacific islands of Pukapuka and Tokelau. They guzzled coconut oil - but showed no evidence that such a high saturated fat intake had any harmful effect. The health of both groups was excellent by western standards: no signs of kidney disease or hypothyroidism that might make them fat. All were lean and healthy. 'The research over four decades concerning coconut oil in the diet and heart disease is quite clear,' Enig writes. 'Coconut oil has been shown to be beneficial.' But beware soy oil, they say. Considered by many to be a wonder food, Enig and Fallon regard it as the enemy. 'Recent advances in processing have transformed the grey, thin, bitter, beany-tasting Asian beverage into a product that western consumers will accept - one that tastes like a milkshake, but without the guilt.' They warn that soybeans contain haemagglutinin, which promotes clotting, and suggest that it may be 'the next asbestos'.
