    Butter can stave of DIABETES, study finds

    Post by graham64 on Tue Dec 29 2015, 21:22

    DOCTORS are adding more fuel to the sugar vs fat fire, and their latest argument will make you melt if you’re a fan of Sunday brunch


    For decades, health advice has been riddled with warnings against all things containing fat. 

    From skim-milk, to ‘diet’ yogurts to anti-butter campaigns, fat has well and truly been branded the bad guy. 

    But more recently, the anti-sugar bandwagon has been picking up pace and gaining serious support along the way. 


    Health experts are preaching their praises for the once-shunned nutrient for its benefits when it comes to weight loss. Now, according to experts, we can add diabetes prevention to the list. 

    A study has revealed that increasing butter consumption can actually be good for you.
     
    The research, published in PLOS One journal, has revealed that butter can help stave off diabetes. 

    How? It comes down to a specific type of saturated fat, called heptadecanoic acid.

    Reportedly, this component lowers insulin levels and blood glucose, thus warding off the unwanted disease. 

    According to experts, the best sources of this nutrient are yoghurt, full-fat milk and - most of all - beloved butter. 

    Researchers from the study suggest that the trend for low-fat and fat-free dairies has created a deficiency.

    This, in turn “may be playing a role in the global diabetes pandemic.”

    In possibly the best news for brunch lovers, heptadecanoic acid can also be found in fish and rye. So now you can enjoy your Eggs Royale guilt-free.

    Like many reading the Forum ... I can remember when we used to always buy the buttery spreads thinking it was the healthier alternative affraid
    Of course now we know better and butter is always near the top of my shopping list.
    Butter just tastes good to on a nice slice of low carb flax bread, which we have from time to time, http://lowcarbdiabetic.forumotion.co.uk/t55-low-carb-flax-seed-bread

    All the best Jan

    Decades ago Weston A Price among others found healthy populations eating dairy. Later one of his hypothesised factors was found to be vitamin K2. Since then various other fats found in dairy have been found to be beneficial. Yes it seems a LOT of people are reverting to butter, wasn't there a shortage in Sweden a while back?

    " butter, wasn't there a shortage in Sweden a while back?"

    Yes there was. Check out how butter is made, totally clean real food.


    Now check out the filth called Canola oil.

    I've been helping support one of our local farmers (I know his father) who does cold pressed and minimally interfered with rapeseed oil, but mostly I prefer butter, coconut oil and olive oil. As J Stanton says

    "if you can put it in a truck and the truck starts IT ISN'T FOOD!"
