Avoiding butter and replacing it with vegetable oils may not have any health benefits. Another new BMJ study finds that one of the old trials (The Minnesota Coronary Trial) used to support the war on fat was a total failure – that was later hidden.
Not only did people who replaced saturated fats with vegetable oils not improve their health or longevity. But in fact people who lowered their cholesterol more by eating vegetable oils died earlier!
It’s high time to discard the obsolete fear of natural saturated fat, like real butter.
