Like Butter...

Pass The Butter .... please.

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 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.

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 (this 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 dded, 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 a find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your Tupperware and, spread that on your toast?
They were destroyed because they lied pretentiously. Have no fear that my wrath
will fall upon you because of your innocent mistakes.

I don't know about that last one... I have had mold growing on the inside of the lid and on the edge of a margerine container (where the margerine is very "thin"). Then again, perhaps it was microscopic toast particles left in the margerine by some careless toast-butterer.

Scary stuff in any case. When several friends were advised to switch back to butter for health reasons (some of which are stated in the list), I went with the tide. It tastes better, and I tend to use less as well. I have a lonely tub of the evil margerine in the fridge for greasing up baking dishes -- probably not a lot of the oily stuff gets in my food, and it sticks to the sides (unlike liquid oil), plus it salts up the edges of casseroles and breads, so I probably won't quit doing that. However, I bet that pint tub of margerine will end up lasting me 10 years now that I use butter for everything else. At least it won't rot.

I like to rant the same way about Twinkees. Absolutely no food value at all, and the "cream filling" is nothing short of a sweetened polymer.

I doubt that's true. Even if it is, it's completely meaningless.

Water(H2O, required for life, yaknow?) is only ONE MOLECULE away from being HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (H2O2, which is EXPLOSIVE). OMGZ, don't drink teh waters!

Sounds to me like that's a forwarded email originated by someone owning cows somewhere. In other words, it's total bullshit. Margarine is perfectly safe, and in a lot of ways, healthier than butter.

Less trans fat, less saturated fat, and no cholesterol(according to wikipedia, although the cholesterol has no citation, the others do). And you can buy low fat margarine that's even better.

Dairy lobbyists have been trying to get margarine off the market for years with propaganda, legislation, and straight-up lies. It only works when people apply the naturalistic fallacy(it's better because it's NATURAL...like aging, disease, hemlock, and mosquitoes are good, while medicine, cities, cars, and the Internet are bad) or actually believe the BS. If you can cite a scientific article that deems margarine unsafe or unhealthy, I might have reason to doubt it, but unsourced, unverified data isn't a good argument.

This doesn't even make sense. I think whoever wrote that meant to say that a margarine molecule is one atom away from being plastic.

And as Phaedrus pointed out, one atom can make a hell of a lot of difference.

Look, I'm not much good at big speeches, and I know I haven't always been an easy guy to get on with, and I know, that given the choice, I wouldn't have chosen you as friends, but I just want to say, that over the years, I have come to regard you as people I met.
