Butter doesn’t increase risk of early death, research says

MEDFORD, MA (WCMH) – New research suggests that eating butter does not increase the risk of heart disease.

The study was conducted by researchers at Tufts University and published today in the journal PLOS ONE.

Eating one to three tablespoons of butter per day did not significantly increase the risk of heart disease or early death. It even notes that butter eaters had a slightly decreased risk of developing diabetes

Researchers say butter can be considered a ‘middle of the road’ food. Butter may not be that bad for you, but other healthy fats may be a better choice.
