Butter has been enjoyed for thousands of years by traditional cultures. These cultures were people like those in Olde England, those in the primitive Swiss villages and even the Mongolians whose staple diet was milk products and meat. It is a natural healthy fat and when consumed as raw butter has several health benefits. It is not the bad fat it has been made out to be. In fact, those that eat margarine have twice the heart disease as those that eat butter. So how can butter make us healthier?
