    Default Okay I don't want to eat Margarine anymore!

    I just got this in an email from a friend:



    Pass the butter ~ ~ ~ ~ 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 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
    a find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

    My family has never purchased margarine or butter, so I'm not accustomed to the taste of either. I've got no idea why, but we use Country Crock Shedd's Spread

    I've always hated going over to my grandmaw's for Thanksgiving because of this. Everyone raves about her cooking, but since I was little Grandmaw's house meant one thing: margarine

    I thought Country Crock spread was margarine? That's what we usually have in our fridge....
