In this video Bulletproof Exec, Dave Asprey talks about potential health benefits of butter, salt and even coffee. I met Dave last winter at the Longevity Now Conference in CA where this was a topic reiterated by many of the presenters.
I have several posts on the subject of Fats/Oils with different experts in the field. Also see these related blog/videos

Dave Asprey, The Bulletproof Executive, is a Silicon Valley biohacker, security expert, and entrepreneur who spent 15 years and $250,000 to hack his own biology. He upgraded his brain by 20 IQ points, lowered his biological age, and lost 100 lbs without using calories or exercise.
The Financial Times calls him a “bio-hacker who takes self-quantification to the extreme of self-experimentation.” His writing has been published by the New York Times and Fortune, and he’s presented at Wharton, the University of California, and Singularity University. He runs the Silicon Valley Health Institute. a 19-year old anti-aging non-profit group.
Dave started the wildly popular, cognitive-enhancing Bulletproof Coffee trend of using grass-fed unsalted butter in coffee instead of mik. He’ll bring some to share. He also authored The Better Baby Book (Wiley 2012), a complete program that uses epigenetics to create healthier, smarter babies, starting even before conception.
