Butter vs. Margarine

This is interesting. .. .

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys...
 When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put  all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their  heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get  their money back..

It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow
colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter.  How do you like
it?   They have come out with some clever new flavouring...

DO YOU KNOW... The difference between margarine and butter?

Read on to the end...gets very interesting!

Both  have the same amount of calories.
Butter  is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8  grams; compared   to 5 grams for margarine.

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study. Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.
Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and only  because  they are added!
Butter  tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of
other foods.
Butter  has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for
less than 100 years .

And now, for Margarine..
Very High in Trans fatty acids.
Triples risk of coronary heart disease .
Increases  total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and
lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)
Increases  the risk of cancers up to five times..
Lowers  quality of breast milk.
Decreases immune response.
Decreases  insulin response.

And  here's the most disturbing fact.... HERE  IS  THE  PART  THAT  IS  VERY

Margarine  is but ONE  MOLECULE away  from being PLASTIC... and shares 27
ingredients with PAINT

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life  and
anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is  added,  changing
the molecular structure of the  substance).

You can try this yourself:
Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded
area.  Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:
no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it  (that should
tell you something)

it does not rot or smell differently because it has  no nutritional value ;
nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a
find a home to grow.  Why?   Because it is nearly plastic.  Would you melt
your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

Share This with Your Friends..... (If you want to butter them up')!
Chinese Proverb:  When someone shares something of value with you and you
benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.
