Name This Health Food!

Updated on December 18, 2012

Which Health Food Do Most People Avoid Eating? Written by Angela LaMor RMA NCPT and Frances Bleuet owner of Nutrition for Weight Loss

This health food is avoided by most people, but it contains a highly usable form of vitamin A! Sufficient amounts of vitamin A are associated with good skin, resistance to infection and a lower incidence of cancer.

This misunderstood food is high in the mineral selenium. Selenium is an antioxidant. Antioxidants are known to prevent cancer and other disease by controlling free radical formation in the body. Antioxidants are also associated with youth and longevity. They help to protect the body from accelerated aging!

This amazing food contains lecithin which breaks down cholesterol and other fats reducing the incidence of heart disease and high blood pressure. When cholesterol and fats are kept in solution in the body, they don't cause problems in your circulatory system that are associated with heart disease, and they help to moisturize you skin and hair making you look younger and healthier. Lecithin is also important for brain function! Most of the lecithin found in the body is stored in the brain.

This natural food has anti-fungal properties, anti-tumor properties and boosts the immune system and I bet no one ever told you those qualities about this food!

What is this amazing food? It is butter!! In fact the body uses the fat in butter to make energy-as opposed to storing it as fat.

Were you ever told that margarine is healthier? Margarine is unnatural. It is oil hardened by adding hydrogen to it. Once you have hardened it, it is no better for you than butter. In fact, it's worse because it's unnatural.

All partially hydrogenated foods, such as margarine are unstable and harmful to the body! Unstable foods can cause changes at the cellular level that can lead to cancer and other auto-immune diseases.

In my book "EveryBODY Can Heal" I list the four basic steps back to health. The first one is to forget everything you think you know and the second is to eliminate unnatural foods and other substances from the body.

I hope this article helps you to achieve step one.

This article was written for fun. Please don't consider butter a health food, just think twice when you hear claims about any food, herb or medication. Almost anything can be made to look good (or bad) when it may not be. All claims in this article about butter ARE true.

EveryBODY Can Heal

      Butter is the best. If I could eat dairy I would. Loved the hub, great fun.

      Thanks for your comment Fucsia. I actually wrote this article for fun, but everything in it IS true! I don't eat mounds of butter for its health effect, there are much better choices out there, but margarine is NOT one of them!

      I know that fats are important to us. They must be part of our daily diet. But.. ..Butter?? I prefer the vegetables fats like olive oil, or sunflower oil, soy oil, seeds, nuts, not only for a ethical choise ( I follow a vegan diet ) but also because I think they are better from a nutritional and healthy point of view. Between butter and margarine, I choose neither. But your Hub makes me curious.. I want to know more about this food!
