Butter is made just from the fat of the milk. It's like taking just the unhealthy part of milk and eating only that.

Potential unhealthiness of butter is about the amount of saturated fat consumed as a part of one's overall diet. A little butter isn't unhealthy. Butter is very high in saturated fat, so becomes unhealthy when consumed in large amounts on a regular basis.
