it seems that in the Paleo Diet book Cordain suggests that we stay away from butter and bacon...is this true? I was under the impression that bacon was good and butter from grass fed beef was good as well..can someone please clarify for me. Thanks

That's a very old book, and quite out of date. Dr. Cordain has changed his stance on saturated fat since. Paleo Answer is his newer book.
That said, neither CAFO bacon, nor CAFO butter should ideally be used, rather you'd want pastured bacon (usually without a sugar cure, just smoked), and butter from grassfed cows, such as Kerrygold.
