I just had someone tell me that eating butter can lead to diabetes.
I don't believe them but want to see if anyone had ever come across this on any web sites or message boards.
I can't imagine where this person got this idea but I'd like to run it down to a source if possible.
Of course, it may be something that this person came up with by themselves.
I understand that butter could play a part in obesity which can contribute to Type 2 diabetes, but I was told that simply eating butter will cause diabetes.
My experience with diabetes is the past nine years treating four diabetic cats and in that time I've learned a lot about
the disease and the physiology involved.
I cannot think of any way that butter could bring on diabetes. Certainly it contains a lot of saturated fat which everyone should eat a minimum of, but how could it cause diabetes?
I can't think of any way.
As to fat in general - I had a heart attack on November 10, 2002 and watch my fat intake daily.
