Researchers out of McMaster University have found that we can all eat our butter. They have found that butter and other saturated fats are not, I repeat NOT, associated with an increased risk of stroke, heart disease, or diabetes. On the contrary those butter imposters that are made from oils do have an increased risk. These industrial trans fats, like those in margarine, actually carry a 34% increased risk of death. So keep in mind that saturated fats, like butter, come from natural resources like animals and industrial trans fats do not. Further proof to keep your ingredients natural and simple.
