A Study Paid for by the Dairy Industry Found That Butter Is Bad for You. Uh…What?

Is Butter Bad For You? A Study Funded by the Dairy Industry Found That It Is.

I’m not one to follow food fads. Instead, I Sayschoose to eat what my parents or grandparents fed me, essentially foods I grew up on. But, I still enjoy reading about the latest research about the food of the week whether it’d be eggs, sugar, fat, coffee, or whatever is on the social food radar.

Is butter bad for you? A study concluded that even moderate levels of butter consumption could contribute to higher cholesterol. In fact, butter raises cholesterol more than alternatives such as olive oil according to a report in the Washington Post. The surprising part is that it was paid for by the Danish Dairy Research Foundation; therefore, you would think the results would be skewed in favor of the dairy industry.

It is a refreshing change to see a health study putting science first, not the business or industry that paid for it. Marion Nestle, the Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition and Food Studies at New York University, says “the first thing you need to do when you read a study is figure out who paid for it. It’s very telling.”
