Toxin Free Body: Why Butter is The Best!

If you want to start a debate in a social setting, as the saying goes, just bring up the following topics: God, politics, and....butter?

It sounds funny, but it's true! There is almost no food as demonized as butter, except perhaps milk.

But if you're avoiding butter thinking that you're doing your arteries, your waistline, or your health a favor, think again!

In fact, butter promotes fertility, slashes cancer & heart attack risks, is good for your skin, prevents asthma and is good for digestion!

Oh, and it tastes amazing too! (Our baby Micah eats it in little pieces, and I think I could too!)

Wondering why you should believe me? Check out this article from Dr. Mercola showing why butter truly is the best. (And why margarine, shortening & spreads are the true villains.)

So have your organic, (preferably raw) butter and enjoy it too!

I agree. But women in their forties need to be careful. I developed a non-functioning gall bladder, and butter brought on an attack almost as fast as cream.

And while you're at it, look for Irish butter which I think has higher levels of DHA and tastes AMAZING
