The Vedas declare that curds are vigour and ghee is life. This may sound outlandish, but on deeper study it sounds reasonable. There are immense benefits of using ghee as a cooking medium, and also as a vehicle to carry bioactive phytochemicals. Since all body cells have cell membranes made up primarily of lipids, it is logical to state that bodily health depends to a large extent upon the type of fats we eat. The brain, being composed almost entirely of fats, is even more affected by the lipids we ingest. Hence, proper choice of the correct cooking medium is vital to ensure a long and healthy life.
