A new study found that one serving of butter or about 12g of butter – one tablespoon – was enough to make diabetes risk become high. Especially if you consume it almost every day. Unhealthy saturated fats in butter and the sugar content in bread are said to be the main causes of diabetes by researchers who have monitored the diet of 3,349 respondents. Those involved as study participants were indeed diagnosed to have a high risk of heart disease or stroke but did not have diabetes at the start of the study. Within 4.5 years, participants who regularly consumed toast with butter or butter, 266 of them had type 2 diabetes. However, respondents who ate the same breakfast, but running a Mediterranean diet rich in fruits and vegetables, whole-grain cereals, oil olives, as well as fish and poultry at the next meal, have decreased risk.

Research in Spain, which involves experts from Harvard University in the United States, emphasizes more consumption of healthy fats, which are sourced from nuts, seeds, fish and poultry. They do not recommend consuming lots of oil from animals, such as red meat and butter. Dr. Marta Guasch-Ferre, one of the leaders of the study, said, “These findings emphasize the healthy benefits of the Mediterranean diet to prevent chronic diseases, especially type 2 diabetes.”
