"No" is my answer to your question, "Is coconut oil a cure for Alzheimer's?" Despite well-intentioned people (to give them the benefit of the doubt) there's no scientifically validated cure.

However, it's not all that easy to do so. There are no integrated buttons, as on other sites, but that's not so big of a problem. What is vaguely annoying is when I cut and paste a link into Facebook, the title and heading text is not from the article, but rather from ET generally. When that happens, I have to manually cut and paste the text.
Any thoughts on this?
What would really be best is if there was some simple "share" functionality. I like the "share" button much better than the "like" button, as the stuff I share always shows up, while the stuff I like often doesn't.
But I never realized quite how bad it was until now. I've been reading Igal Kipnis' new book "1973: The road to war". The following is from page 237. The date, October 6. Two days before, the Soviet Union had evacuated the families of their advisors from Egypt and Syria, and the Israeli government were starting to realize how badly they had screwed up.The previous night, Ashraf Marwan, Israel's top spy in Egypt (or double agent?) had had an emergency meeting with the head of the Mossad in London, and had delivered another of his warnings that a war was about to start. This time, however, the date was correct (even if the time was off by a few hours), and Golda Meir had been woken up at 4am with the news.
This should give you an idea of how serious things were, since what follows might otherwise seem to come straight from the pages of The Onion. The time is 8am, at a meeting of as much of the cabinet as could attend:
