New study: There’s no connection between butter and heart disease


Is butter back? Surprise, surprise, a new study goes through all earlier science tracking people who eat butter, and the risk of disease.

The study reveals that there is no link between butter and heart disease, and that if anything, eating butter may even reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

I’m certainly not surprised. This is completely in line with other modern studies. The question is when the nutritional guidelines will catch up to reality, and stop scaremongering about harmless old butter.

When do you think?
