Butter is bad a myth we've been fed by the 'healthy eating' industry

Government and health charities have been doling out duff healthy eating advice for decades, but when are they going to admit it? That's the question raised by the remarks of cardiologist Aseem Malhotra, who writing in the BMJ has challenged the orthodoxy that the consumption of foods containing saturated fat, such as butter and red meat, causes heart disease.

Malhotra is brave and principled to speak out, yet he is far from a lone voice. In 2010, a major review of scientific studies on fat, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concluded that contrary to what we have been lead to believe, “there is no convincing evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease”. In the UK, other independent-minded nutritionists and medics, including John Briffa, Zoe Harcombe, and Malcolm Kendrick, have vociferously countered the biggest public health dogma of our times.

Like bacon, butter is one of nature’s perfect foods. Yummy.

Good or bad,a juicy steak accompanied by a heavily buttered baked potato is something I'll always enjoy.

Butter ain't bad. It's one of the major food groups.

Like margaritas.

The real tragedy here is that the butter "alternative" foisted upon us by health Nazis, to wit, margarine, is actually hazardous to your health. A stick of margarine is basically a stick of hydrogenated "trans-fat". Not really a food at all but something artificial.

Butter is natural and much preferable to margarine (and olive oil is even better).

Yep, when I was young I ate margarine instead because they told us it was healthier than butter is, and it turned out to be worse.

Butter is the best source of conjugated linoleic acid available.

Butter is essential to our diet, as is carnitine.

I recommend that all leftist food NAZI lay off of butter.

Actually, margarine is not really a fat, but a toxic plastic that turns our cells water-proof resulting in type 2 diabetes.

Thank God, we haven’t had margarine in the house for at least 40 years. We eat plenty of butter, and I eat a bit of bacon. And I occasionally fry stuff in olive oil.

.
If they are artificially sweetened they truly will kill you.
