    This study used a medium chain fatty acid introduced through coconut oil to treat the disease. Research into perioxidase disease had previously been focused on long chain fatty acids, as was used in “Lorenzo’s Oil”.*

    *“Lorenzo’s Oil’ is a combination of a 4:1 mix of oleic acid and erucic acid, extracted from rapeseed oil and olive oil designed to normalize the accumulation of the very long chain fatty acids in the brain thereby slowing the progression of adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD).“ https://www.myelin.org/lorenzos-oil/
