    Lard – A Healthy Food That Should Be
    Eaten In Our Diet?

    You may be surprised to see lard on the list of good fats.  We have for so long vilified lard, that it is hard for many of us to entertain the possibility that it can be a healthy food that has a place being eaten in our diet today.  However, lard was traditionally used by many healthy peoples, including Americans at the turn of the century, that were not anywhere near as fat as we are today, and who had virtually never encountered heart disease.  Lard from pigs outside in the sunshine is naturally high in vitamin D, which is getting more and more press lately as being a very important nutrient that protects us from getting heart disease, cancer and more.  We do NOT recommend hydrogenated lard or lard that has chemical additives, or lard from factory-farmed pigs not eating their natural diets.

    Are you still afraid of using lard in your diet?  Did you know that Thai diets are high in lard as well as saturated coconut oil, but the Thai people still are much healthier than Americans in some key areas.

    Thai Diets High in Lard, But Less Heart Disease, Cancer and High Blood Pressure

    One example of a cuisine that uses lots of lard and coconut oil is that of Thailand.  When researchers examined autopsy reports on a group from Bangkok, they found that coronary occlusion or myocardial infarction was 8 times less frequent than for Americans.  In addition, diabetes is 10 times less frequent and high blood pressure about 4 times less frequent in the study group in Thailand compared to the United States.  So if you are worried about saturated fats like lard and coconut oil causing heart problems, you might want to think again.  In addition, Thailand has some of the lowest rates of cancer for both men and women, out of 50 countries studied by the World Health Organization.

    Another reason to consume high vitamin D lard from pigs out in the sunshine is that vitamin D is important for protecting against the accumulation of heavy metals, especially lead in the bones.  It also seems to be needed for nutrient assimilation.

    Eating Lard Has a Place as a Healthy Food In Your Diet



     There's about 2300IU in 100g of pork fat. That makes lard the second most abundant food in D3 besides cod liver oil ! I'm so gonna live on lard now ! Although before you start consuming more lard you have to know that factory farmed and grain fed pigs don't get sunshine and have awful omega 3 to omega 6 ratio.
