At present times, people are more health-conscious than they have ever been, and to keep one healthy, various food items are avoided which are unhealthy for our body. But, there are several food items that are mostly believed to be unhealthy but they are not. In fact, there are various foods we thought as unhealthy that are actually beneficial for our health.

It is a proven fact that most of the fats and oils break down into free radicals while cooking food and free radicals are not good for our health as the excess amounts of free radicals can damage body cells and hence makes us prone to cancer. But ghee even with a smoking point of 260 degrees Celsius (500 degrees Fahrenheit), doesn’t break down as other oils and fats hence there is no question of it being turned into free radicals. Ghee contains conjugated linoleic acid which is helpful to deal with cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Ghee is also rich in Butyrate which helps in digesting food easily. Along with ghee is a great source for fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K making it beneficial to our body? Like any food, moderation is the key here as the excess of anything is harmful to us.
