    do you know the difference between butter and margarine?

    (from an email)

    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 to5 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).

    Open 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 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.

    Pass the BUTTER PLEASE

    try the butter vs margarine test....toss a pad of each on your front sidewalk about 3 ft apart. Go inside and come back out a few hours later. You will notice that ants and insects do not come to the margarine but are all over the butter, My understanding is that margarine was first supposed to be a new plastic that did not work out sio they had to find some use for it.....never touch the stuff myself

    Love butter - won't touch margarine. Have told several friends how margarine is not as good for you, but
    they don't want to listen. Don't even like the taste of margarine!!!

    Here's an interesting photo. The bright yellow stuff being ignored by the ants is margarine, and the pale yellow stuff with ants all over it is butter, a natural food. Do the ants know something we don't? - The margarine killed three ants.
