Butter consumption associated 1% increased risk of death

One Tablespoon of butter per day is associated with a 1% increase in total mortality according to a recent meta-analysis of previous studies by researchers from Tufts University and Stanford School of Medicine.
“This systematic review and meta-analysis suggests relatively small or neutral overall associations of butter with mortality, CVD [cardiovascular disease], and diabetes,” the paper concludes. “These findings do not support a need for major emphasis in dietary guidelines on either increasing or decreasing butter consumption, in comparison to other better established dietary priorities.”
