Pass the Butter....

Pass The Butter ..Please.
This is interesting
. . .
was originallymanufactured 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..

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.
margarine canincrease heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.
butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.
has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few
only because they are added!

tastes much betterthan margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods.
has been around forcenturies where margarinehas been around for less than100 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.
insulin response.

And here's the most disturbing fact.... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS &nbs p;VERY INTERESTING!

is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC..

This fact alone was enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and an ything 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 wil l go near it (that should tell you something)
* it does not rot or smell differently because it has
nonutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny we eny 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?

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.
