This Type of Butter Causes Acne, Breast and Prostate Cancers
Many people are starting to realize that butter is a health food, but many of us may still be tempted to purchase non-organic butter because it’s less expensive.
However, not all butter is nutritionally equal. Butter’s nutritional value depends on how the animals are raised. Did you know that the fatty acid composition of butterfat varies according to the animal’s diet?
The US EPA estimates that approximately 35% of an adult’s daily intake of dioxins is derived from dairy products. The percentage for children is even higher. Persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic pollutants (PBTs), including dioxins, bioaccumulate through the food chain and ultimately result in low-level contamination in most animal fats. It is important to understand the PBT levels in milk, as milk fat may be one of the highest dietary sources of PBT exposure. Analysis of milk also allows the opportunity to investigate geographic variability, as milk is produced and distributed on a regional scale.
According to Food Babe:
“Conventional dairy cow feed is sometimes fortified with additional protein, omega-3 fatty acids and CLA from GMO rapeseed (canola) because the cows are not getting these nutrients naturally from the grass. GMO alfalfa hay is also commonly fed to cows. So basically, conventionally raised cows are almost entirely getting their food from GMOs – food that was created in a laboratory, that hasn’t been tested long term, but has produced horrific results in several alarming animal studies.”
Dairy products like regular butter are loaded with insulin-like growth factor 1 or IGF-1. IGF-1 is a growth hormone that functions like insulin in the body. IGF-1 exposure is associated with hormone-dependent conditions like acne, and breast and prostate cancers. IGF-1 exposure is particularly worrisome in the case of cancer as it appears to promote the development of the disease.
Conventional butter consumption has been found to increase the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases as well. In a study conducted by the State University of New York’s School of Medicine, regular butter use considerably increases blood pressure as well as the serum cholesterol levels in healthy men. Regular butter consumption has far worse effects on the already hypercholesterolaemic, or those individuals with existing elevated blood cholesterol, as conventional butter consumption further increases their LDL cholesterol levels.
