Butter is Good for You!

Contrary to what many modern health experts believe, butter is actually good for you, says Dr. William Campbell Douglass II, editor of The Douglass Report, a newsletter dedicated to debunking common medical myths.
Although butter has been blamed in recent years for causing heart disease and cancer, Douglass says “common sense should have told people these were ridiculous accusations.”
But over the years, people chose to bypass butter for margarine with hopes of avoiding heart disease. Quite the contrary, Douglass says, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, and other diseases have skyrocketed while butter sales plummeted.
Douglass cites a study by the Medical Research Council that found that men who eat butter instead of margarine actually cut their risk of heart disease in half. How so? Because butter is actually full of nutrients that are good for the heart — including vitamin A, a vital antioxidant, and lecithin, which helps the body metabolize cholesterol and fats, Douglass explains in his newsletter, www.DouglassReport.com.
When consumed, butter’s ingredients also act as a “lubricant” for joints, and even fight against calcification, which leads to painful arthritis.
Butter, especially organic versions from grass-fed cows, delivers one other super nutrient: vitamin K2, Douglass says. In addition to K2’s heart-protecting power, consuming higher levels has been found to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 35 percent.
“Here’s what you should do,” Douglass says. “This one should be obvious … eat more butter.”
