    Geoff, you should never apply butter directly to your heart.

    This is an example of being fed the wrong facts by the medical profession. People who don't know any better look at doctors as "medical gods who know everything about medicine".

    "If there's one thing medical science is incapable of", the late Dr. Robert Mendelsohn used to say, "it is admitting that it doesn't know something. That's why every human ailment, real or imagined, very quickly gets a cause assigned to it."

    Causes can change quickly and be replaced by more plausible and more profitable ones, but no disease goes long without its corresponding culpable germ or human foible to explain it. Lyme Disease, I am told, had 17 successive causes before a really good one was settled upon." 

    The cholesterol debate is bogus.

    The same argument used to be debated about eggs, but has since ended - and eggs contain MORE cholesterol than butter.

    The body gets 25% of its daily cholesterol from food (it can be ANY kind of food, not just butter). Being designed to regulate its own needs, it takes what it needs and discards the rest. Thus, there is no such thing as "too much".

    The medical theories on cholesterol are wrong to absurdity. The body (liver) produces cholesterol and it does so ONLY when it needs it.

    "If the primary ingredients are made available for its proper function, the body will never engage in making things harmful to itself" - F Batmanghelidj, MD

    Arterial cholesterol is a protective substance.

    When you become dehydrated, the blood loses 8% of its water volume, causing it to become concentrated. When this thickened blood is pumped through the arteries under extreme pressure, it damages the tissues.

    Cholesterol is designed to cover and protect the damage until it can be repaired.

    The pharmaceutical prefers to treat this with medication that lowers the cholesterol, but doesn't repair the damage, nor correct the cause - dehydration. Only water can do this, and doctors don't promote drinking water (they promote "fluids" - water substitutes that are not the same thing).

    And because the cause isn't being corrected, the damage is continuously exposed to the pressure and the damage it produces, resulting in the need for more cholesterol.

    This creates an endless cycle that requires the person to remain on medication for the rest of their life - unless THEY educate themself on the benefits of drinking water.

    Some people will say it isn't, because exogenous cholesterol doesn't seem to be the cause of hypercholesterolemia, etc. But I stick with the traditional guidelines, such as ADA, which suggests a maximum intake of 300 mg a day.

    Yep. Butter is high in saturated fat, which can raise your bad cholesterol and make heart disease more likely. You're better off to replace butter with olive oil or vegetable oil-based spreads, which contain heart-healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats.
