Why is coconut oil strongly inflammatory?

It has like nothing for the vitamins and minerals, why is it strongly inflammatory, is it because saturated fat is inflammatory or what? I don't get it, I thought this was a health food.

our very own "Stabby raccoon" ..submitted an answer here.. :) so props to him. I think you cant take everything you read on nutrition data as gospel. Seems theyre wrong or misleading and often ill informed about alot of things.

There's one possible reason below, but check out this 2010 study that showed some anti-infammatory/analgesic and antipyretic properties of VCO (virgin coconut oil).

FYI- "Nutrition Data" is owned by Conde Nast (hence all the Self magazine banners everywhere), and the data base is no longer kept up, so not all info is accurate.
