I love butter. I can go through a pound a week when I’m baking a lot. I heard that it can cause inflammation, which leads to high cholesterol, so I dove into the research to see what I could find. My conclusion from clinical studies was that it does increase cholesterol, although grass-fed butter can increase good cholesterol (which is hard to do). We’re increasing the amount of other fats in our diets, like coconut oil, although I’ll never be able to stop eating butter permanently!
