Study finds that butter is neither demon nor angel when it comes to health effects.
A Tufts meta-analysis of the health effects of butter consumption in people in 15 countries has found little or no negative consequence from using the spread regularly.
Butter use was only slightly associated with total mortality, not linked at all to cardiovascular disease and even slightly beneficial when it came to diabetes. The study, published in PLOS ONE, was led by Laura Pimpin, a former postdoctoral fellow at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and senior author Dariush Mozaffarian, the school’s dean.
