Inaccurate Quote

JAMA. 2020;323(24):2530. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.9197

The Medical News and Perspectives article “Coconut Oil’s Health Halo a Mirage, Clinical Trials Suggest,”1 published in the April 28, 2020, issue of JAMA, included a quote that did not accurately explain how medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) are absorbed by humans. This article was corrected online.
