Study Finds no Direct Link Between Butter and Heart Disease

It looks like the question "Is butter bad for you?" has got some comforting answers as per study conducted by a group of scientists in the United States.

The research titled "Is Butter Back? A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Butter Consumption and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, and Total Mortality" was authored by Laura Pimpin, Jason H. Y. Wu, Hila Haskelberg, Liana Del Gobbo, and Dariush Mozaffarian. It is now accessible via online journal repository called PLOS ONE.

According to the authors' findings, it emerged that butter may not be that bad for the human's arteries. Covering 15 countries, with 636,151 unique individuals as respondents, the data showed no direct link between butter and heart disease.

Butter appeared to be a better choice than sugar or bread and potatoes.

Butter had "minimal impact on mortality, heart disease and diabetes", the study further revealed.

The scientists argued that butter need not to be completely avoided in a diet. The key thing is moderation. Do not go overboard when taking butter or including it in your cooking routines.
