About 30-40 years ago butter was reported to be unhealthy. We now know that butter’s negative reputation was undeserved. In fact butter substitues and man made trans fats are the true culprit that pose threat to out health. All man-made trans fats are bad. These are created when liquid fat is made solid by hydrogenation. Our bodies cannot process these fats.
