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 flavourings. ...

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 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 micro-organisms 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...
