Ban butter, save lives18th January 2010
Heart surgeon Shyam Kolvekar has said that if butter was outlawed it could prevent thousands of deaths in Britain every year.
According to a survey by the Food Standards Agency, 88% of men and 83% of women consume too much saturated fat. Mr Kolvekar said: "By banning butter and replacing it with a healthy spread the average daily sat fat intake would be reduced by 8g - that's 40% of a women's GDA.This would save thousands of lives each year and help to protect them from cardiovascular disease - the UK's biggest killer."
