Actually, butter fats (short and medium chain fatty acids) and cholesterol are one of the vital elements to your brain health and function and when they are foolishly eliminated depression, memory issues, anger outburst, and possibly even Alzheimer's is the risk.

"Cholesterol is Essential for Cellular Function
To further reinforce the importance of cholesterol, I want to remind you of the work of Dr. Stephanie Seneff, who also works with Weston A. Price. One of her theories is that cholesterol combines with sulfur to form cholesterol sulfate, and that this cholesterol sulfate helps thin your blood by serving as a reservoir for the electron donations you receive when walking barefoot on the earth (also called grounding). She believes that, via this blood-thinning mechanism, cholesterol sulfate may provide natural protection against heart disease. In fact, she goes so far as to hypothesize that heart disease is likely the result of cholesterol deficiency — which of course is the complete opposite of the conventional view. "What this tells us is that cholesterol deficiency impacts virtually every aspect of your health. One of the primary reasons for this widespread effect is because cholesterol plays a critical role within your cell membranes. Your body is composed of trillions of cells that need to interact with each other. Cholesterol is one of the molecules that allow for these interactions to take place. For example, cholesterol is the precursor to bile acids, so without sufficient amounts of cholesterol, your digestive system can be adversely affected.It also plays an essential role in your brain, which contains about 25 percent of the cholesterol in your body. It is critical for synapse formation, i.e. the connections between your neurons, which allow you to think, learn new things, and form memories. In fact, there's reason to believe that low-fat diets and/or cholesterol-lowering drugs may cause or contribute to Alzheimer's disease. Low cholesterol levels have also been linked to violent behavior, due to adverse changes in brain chemistry.Furthermore, you need cholesterol to produce steroid hormones, including your sex hormones. Vitamin D is also synthesized from a close relative of cholesterol: 7-dehydrocholesterol.
Numerous depression clients have made fast and sustained progress through the addition of butter and Vit D3 to their daily diet. Over 66% of the brain is composed of saturated fat and the protective covering over the neuron is made using cholesterol.
When the brain is fed what it needs it is able function. Hydration, nutrient, exersize and sun all have a greater impact on depression control/elimination than anti-depression meds, without the side effects. " ... trials have repeated these results, showing again and again that patients who follow aerobic-exercise regimens see improvement in their depression comparable to that of those treated with medication" (http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1998021,00.html)
The next time your feeling a bit foggy in the memory, having a bout of depression, or are just worried about keeping your mental capacities for as long as you live, step outside and make some Vit D3 from the sun an your skin, drink a big glass of water, and add some butter to those greens. Your brain (and heart) will thank you.
