Butter or "We knew this anyway"


We are getting to the point where the misplaced emphasis on saturated fats as the guilty complex molecules has to end. Obesity, heart disease and much else really isn't driven by these essential little darlings:

Four decades of medical wisdom that cutting down on saturated fats reduces our risk of heart disease may be wrong, a top cardiologist has said. Fatty foods that have not been processed – such as butter, cheese, eggs and yoghurt – can even be good for the heart, and repeated advice that we should cut our fat intake may have actually increased risks of heart disease...

Some of us have been saying this for quite a while of course!
