Pass The Butter ... Please

Post by Silentman on Sat Sep 06, 2008 7:07 am

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 coloring and sold it to people to use in place of
butter. How do you like it? They have come out with so many 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.

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
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 .

Triple risk of coronary
heart disease .
Increases total cholesterol
and LDL (t his is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)
Increases the risk of cancers up to five fold.


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..

This
fact alone was 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 in your garage or shaded area.
Within a couple of days you will note 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 find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?
