So, if you are looking for the "healthiest" alternative, do some research and don't just take our word for it.
Very Nice. And I didn't say it was healthy, just that lard has less cholesterol and fewer negative affects than do butter and hydrogenated fats. But I agree with you completely. Every person who wants to know about the good and bad concerning fats needs to dig in and do some personal research., and talk to a qualified nutritionist.

Goodweed, I know you didn't say "healthy", just "healthier". I didn't want anyone to misread that and make assumptions without doing their research. I knew what you meant, but then I know you better than some of our new members. Thanks for the clarity!
