>>Ban butter to save thousands of lives

Butter should be banned to protect the nation's health, according to a leading heart surgeon.

A leading heart surgeon Mr.Shyam Kolvekar says only radical action can save growing numbers of young adults from heart attacks and clogged arteries.
Warning of the dangers of other foods high in saturated fat, he advises people to eat less red meat, take low-fat milk and switch to olive and sunflower oil.
Saturated fat is blamed for a third of the 200,000 premature deaths from heart disease a year.
Adults are eating an average of 800 grams of it a month - 20 per cent more than the recommended limit. Hitting the recommended level could save 3,500 lives a year.

Mr. Kolvekar, a consultant at University College London Hospitals, said: 'By banning butter and replacing it with a healthy spread the average daily sat-fat intake would be reduced by eight grams.

This would save thousands of lives each year and help to protect them from cardiovascular disease - the UK's biggest killer.
