Fat really has a bad reputation.  We do need some fats in our bodies, because the good fats contribute to healthy nerve function and have other benefits.  It's the bad fats we have to look out for.  Fat free and low fat foods are really no better than full fat varieties in many ways, since the companies that make these processed foods replace fat with sugar, which, guess what...converts to fat.  Thanks for these two informative links.  I look forward to reading more.

that's really correct and Butter and Cheese have got bad reputation, but these are good for our health!

Margarine is much worse for you than butter.  I won't allow margarine in my house, and all my baked goods (I'm a baker on the side, in addition to my full time nursing job) are made with real butter.  Olive oil is also a "good" fat, the key is moderation and not drowning food in these items.

I love butter.

Posted by Communicatorbronze Molly H on 5 June 2012 at 2:32 AM

Absolutely false. Butter is in no way good for your health. Now any more than cow milk, even at 2%.

Their fat and cholesterol content are terrible. 

The ONLY unsaturated fats that are good IN MODERATION are :

Canola or Olive oils

Nuts and grains

Olives

Avocado

I would strongly recommend that you consult a professional nutritionist to learn more on the subject.

Wrong. While we can indeed get certain benefits from unsaturated fat content (olive oil, nuts, avocados etc.) your body has absolutely no bimperative need to consume fat. For some reason this is often use as an excuse for fat people to consume fat food (I am in no way saying this is your case!)

ha ha ha ha ...it's so funny!

Fat people give excuse to eat fat...So my dear friend, if you reduce fat from diet...what are you left with???

@mtlfilmstudio I will support your view...but what do think about the French Paradox??

My post is very clear. From your answer and from claim that butter is healthy I can see you are very confused about nutrition. As I previously stated, please consult a professional nutritionist to avoid misleading yourself and others. I cannot help you further.

@mtlfilmstudio Your post says that we should eat unsaturated fats...That sounds scientific...But my reasoning is the way u use fat makes it more important.

1. If you want to use fat for cooking and deep frying. PUFA is not good. Why?

A. because it has low smiking point (Starts smoking and hydrogenation as much lower temperature).

B. High absorbility (high amount of fat get absorbed per unit volume of food)

C. Higher number of double and triple bonds between carbon atoms, which forms the precursors for formation of Trans fats.

PUFA and MUFA are good when u cook food at temp lower than their smiking points. PUFA and MUFA is good for low temperature things like salad dressings, etc.

Now, coming back to your original question about Butter and Cheese (which contains very high level of saturated fats), both of these are healthy as these are sources of good cholesterol (HDL)...and their are other health benefits associated with cheese and butter. If you need referece to these I will send you recent Scientific paper from which these statemnets have been taken.

Now, as you have said I pretty confused and I am misleading people about nutrition, I would rather say that I am just doing what I have studied from research papers.

Cholesterol:

Cholesterol has been tagged as bad food and is associated with heart diseases.

The truth is there are forms of cholesterol which are good and there are forms of cholesterol which are bad.

Cholesterol froms 50% of membrane structure.

It provides substratre for Cortical hormones (Glucocorticoids, Sex Corticoids and mineralcorticoids)

7- dehydrocholesterol is precursor for Vit-D3 formation.

There are lot of stuff which we can cite and keep on arguing. My point is moderartion is key to health.

P.S.: Please See The French Paradox and Atkins Diet.

Good answer Sonu !

Fats are very important ingredient of our daily diet. We normally use fats by various ways as in the form of ghee , oil or in the form of meat etc. Fats can not be excluded from the normal diet because without fats our diet will be incomplete. We need to take fats for better and healthy life.There are several health benefits of fats in humans. Normally fats are believed to be dangerous for the humans but these are very necessary for living normal and healthy life. Some health benefits of fats are enlisted here fats are required by the human body for following purposes 

  • Maintaining healthy skin

  • Insulating body organs against shock
  • Maintaining body temperature
