Huh? Deny Butter? I don't get it. Butter is not bad for you in moderate amounts and with a healthy lifestyle and exercise...in fact, it is better for you than most things. Especially for your brain and nervous system.
Another who believes "butter is bliss".

Deny good ingredients? No thanks, we were doing fine before the FDA told us what was bad and good for us.

Edit to add: If butter is a no-no, don't eat in any nice restaurants. You'll ingest a stick or two.
The Bible has references to butter as the product of milk from the cow, and of Abraham setting butter and milk from a calf before three angels who appeared to him on the plains of Mamre.3
Butter is a natural saturated type of fat that is solid at room temperature. So, the result of subjecting natural vegetable oils to artificial hydrogenation is a solid and spreadable product that looks like butter (it is solid) but is not of animal origin. This new product is the well - known margarine. You might think that this is indeed a healthier option than butter just because it is of vegetable origin but I can ensure you that it?s not. Artificial hydrogenation is a very aggressive process. It requires the use of toxic chemical agents to be used along with high temperatures and pressure in order to get the final product. Margarine and fake butter types of products are toxic and cause significant inflammatory reactions in the human body.
Organic butter is an excellent source for true vitamin A (retinal), vitamin D, vitamin K, vitamin E and protein. Vitamin A, when obtained from butter, absorbs very easily into your body. If you are lucky enough to have a source of butter from cows that only graze on green grass, you are in for consuming large amounts of vitamin A, D, K, E and protein. Translated — it's healthy to eat un-tampered-with butter.
