Is peanut butter really healthy?

Hi all

Just wanted to know what do you think about peanut butter. Are they healthy or not?

Reading articles over the net is giving me mixed feelings, some say they are healthy, some unhealthy.

Read this article recently:

I had never heard almost any of those things about peanut butter, but we eat it sparingly as you aren't allowed to bring it into a school environment anyway. I knew about the shortening and icing sugar usage in regular commercial peanut butter which is why I avoid buying that kind. Peanut butter shows up in traditional recipes for African cooking. There are other foods with oxalates, I thought they were primarily a concern for people with kidney problems? There are plenty of screwed up things about food we eat that honestly make you believe ignorance is bliss, like apparently there's a threshold for beetle/larva infestation in mushrooms (before consumption is not acceptable) and I've heard of rats in pickle vats so maybe there's a threshold for that too.
