Bulletproof coffee: How to ruin a great cup of joe
By Chris KilhamPublished December 29, 2014FoxNews.com
For a while now, I have read various articles about so-called “Bulletproof coffee.” This, believe it or not, is a perfectly good cup of coffee, with heaps of butter and coconut oil added. It has always sounded quite odd to me. Yet like many zany ideas that gain traction in our willing-to-try-anything society, Bulletproof coffee has its drinkers, its promoters, and its fanatical standard-bearers.
According to its alleged creator Dave Asprey, the idea of Bulletproof coffee was derived from the Tibetan way of making tea with barley and yak butter. Such tea is a staple of Himalayan hill people, most notably the mountain-climbing sherpas who ferry goods and people high up the Himalayas on the tallest mountains in the world, including Everest. The Himalayan sherpas are super fit, can hike all day, and may possibly hold in their teacups at least one of the keys to awesome health.
