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 colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter..  How do you like it?   They have come out  with some clever new flavourings.....    
 

 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 for margarine. 
Eating 
margarine
 canincrease  heart diseasein women by 53% over  eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent  Harvard  Medical Study. 
Eating 
butter increases the absorption of manyother nutrients in  other foods. 
Butter
  has manynutritional benefitswhere margarine has afew and    

only  because  they are added! 

Butter
  tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of  other foods.
Butter
  has been around for centurieswhere 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  
insulinresponse. 
And  here's the most disturbing fact.... HERE IS THE PART THAT  IS  VERY INTERESTING! 

Margarine
  is but ONE MOLECULE away  from beingPLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients withPAINT 
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).    
 
You  can try this yourself:

Purchase  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
nonutritional 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?    
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
