    I read something about that recently which made me glad I very rarely eat bbq'd stuff. On the other hand, we humans were hunter/gatherers for most of our history, and I guess they must have eaten a lot of burned meat cooking on open fires.

    As for butter, I much prefer it to any of the alternatives. I tried those butter like spreads for a while, but they all taste wrong to me and I'm not convinced there would be any significant health benefits over the real thing.

    I'm not a nutritionist or any kind of biologist but wouldn't you get sugar somehow just through a regular diet anyway.

    Well, not if you're on a no carb diet and only eat protein and fats. Then you would not be getting any from food. However, the body is able to make whatever glucose it needs through a process known as gluconeogenesis, whereby protein is broken down by the liver and converted to glucose.

    Isn't it crazy how nutritional science changes so drastically?

    Science is in a constant state of re-evaluation.

    You are under the impression of out dated dogma.It turns out that cholesterol has nothing to do with causing CVD.

    I use an olive oil spread for most stuff but risotto is not risotto with lots of butter and parmesan added at the end.

    I think if one doesn't live on it (a.k.a most stuff is ok in moderation) bread doesn't hurt and still has nutritional value as well. This partly depends of course on the kind of bread (which grains for instance) and what a person puts on it.

    The science against eating butter is not there.

    great post
    i love butter, i eat it every day, i (unf.) cant get raw butter here, but if you can get raw butter go for it, even better,
    butter is very healthy - on the other side margarine is very harmful : it consists of dangerous,carcinogenic, refined,cheap oils which +on top of that+ have been genetically altered

    yes , indeed , the sales price of butter has gone up significantly in the past years, almost double

    Why not make your own butter? It's easy, cheap, and it's up to you if you put anything in it!

    Try it..

    1. Pour cream into the jar and screw on the lid. Shake jar until butter forms a soft lump, 15 to 20 minutes. ...
    2. Pour contents of the jar into a fine mesh strainer and strain out the buttermilk, leaving the solid butter. Remove the lump of butter and wrap in plastic wrap.
    It really is that easy!

    i do butter the following (old fashioned) way:

    - pour milk in a bowl
    - let it sit for 24-48 hours (uncovered)
    - butter will naturally rise and flow at the top
    - remove the butter-layer with a spoon

    there is your butter , enjoy it ;-)
