    Pass the butter.



    Don't know if all of this is factual, but I thought I would pass it on as 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 flavorings..

    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 flavors 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
    INTERESTING!

    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..
    Pass the BUTTER PLEASE

    I read that same article a good while back.

    I've always preffered butter over margarine anyway but after reading that I never bought margarine again.
