thanks, Iv decided Im going to eat limited amounts of organic butter and take this cod liver oil/butter oil supplement http://www.greenpasture.org/public/Products/ButterCodLiverBlend/index.cfm This company seems trust worthy, their fish are wild caught in the arctic and their cows are grass fed and not given any hormones

Butter isn't considered paleo, but many people include it because they don't consider every neolithic food evil just because it's neolithic. Many people who don't respond well to milk still don't react to butter--really just condensed milk fat.

Here's a post from Mark's Daily Apple:

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/grass-fed-butter/#axzz2RXNjwrhX

I personally bust 8 bucks a week on high quality grass fed butter, because of the higher omega content but moreso for the vitamin k2... there's been some suggestion that teeth benefit strongly from larger k2 intake, though I have no sources for this so if anyone has any to add, that'd be great. I've just seen it around on the board here a few times.

Hope that helps a bit, though it was incomplete. :)

Its not paleo. We did quite well for millions of years before animal husbandry.

maybe since it's part of the whole animal?? i don't use it personally, but i don't think it's a bad food.
