25 Super Health Benefits of Delicious, Natural, Creamy …What?!
You’re super health conscious, so you avoid butter because it causes heart disease, right?
Time to bone up on your reading and learn the facts about butter.
Natural, creamy butter goes back probably thousands of years to when our ancestors first began domesticating animals for food. The first written reference to butter was found on a limestone tablet that was at least 4,500 years old describing how butter was made. In India, a form of butter called ghee has served as a symbol of purity, and was offered to the gods in ceremonies for at least the past 3,000 years. Even the bible has references to butter, as Abraham put butter and milk before three angels who appeared to him.
When did butter get its bad rap?
In the early 1900’s, heart disease was something rare. However, just 60 years later, heart disease became the number one killer in America. During this same time period, the consumption of butter decreased from about 18 pounds per person each year to about 4 pounds per person. However, a researcher by the name of Ancel Keys stated that saturated fats and cholesterol in foods caused heart disease.
Even though numerous studies over the past 20 years have proven otherwise, butter is still getting a bad rap and being blamed for causing heart disease, even though Americans have drastically reduced their intake of natural animal fats and exchanged them for processed foods, heart disease continues to be the number one killer.
