03/02/10 This Is Not About Greenwich, But Here Is A Reader Submitted Comments About Butter

I briefly researched authenticity of this article, it is verifiable via different sources, including Harvard School of Public Health.

Margarine has ALWAYS tasted yucky! Matter of fact has NEVER had any taste at all. P.L.

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

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 flavourings.
The difference between margarine and butter?

Read to the end!

Both have the same amount of calories.
Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at
8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine.

margarine can increase 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..

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and
only because they are added!

tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods.

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.

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).

You can try this yourself:

Purchase a tub of margarine leaving it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a few days you will notice a couple 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 hasn't any nutritional value;

nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread it 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.
