Little Bit of Butter May Be Harmless For Your Heart

Consuming butter in limited quantities may not increase the risk of heart disease or stroke — and it might actually be slightly protective against diabetes, finds a new study.The findings showed that patients suffering from heart problems or any related chronic diseases have no cause to worry as the increase in risk due to butter consumption was extremely small.

Butter has been found as a healthier choice in comparison to sugar and starch-enriched food like white bread or potatoes. However, butter when spread on unhealthy foods like white bread may increase the risk of diabetes as well as cardiovascular diseases.

On the other hand, consuming margarine and cooking oils rich in healthy fats such as soybean, canola, flaxseed and extra virgin olive oils are likely to lower the risks compared to butter or refined grains.
