    I'v alway hated margarine and this e-mail that I got today backs up my beliefs!

    Subject: BUTTER

    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 cor onary heart disease. Increases total cholesterol and
    LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) Lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good
    cholesterol) increases the risk of cancers by up to five fold.

    Lowers quality of breast milk... Decreases immune response...
    Decreases insulin response. And here are the most disturbing facts....

    HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

    Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC.......And
    margarine is initially BLACK, but it is DYED YELLOW to look like butter.



    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 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 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.....(Butter them up!)

    I like butter. And I got that email a while ago... and it scared me out of margarine...

    ...for two weeks until I craved the saltiness of margarine.

    I try not to think about it... Just remember margarine isn't derived from animals.

    I've always detested margerine. :puke: All you really have to do is just read the label to get turned off. It's about a mile long, full of unidentifiable things. Butter says: CREAM, SALT (and sometimes no salt).

    I'll stick with the short list on this one! ;) Sometimes there are real health reasons folks can't use butter, and margerine is a decent stand-in, but it's taken over the dairy aisle and most of us don't need it!

    I've heard about this molecule that is a disease if a specific atom is on the left, and a cure for some disease if that atom is on the right. that was pretty wierd too..

    So 'one mulecule away' doesn't necessarely mean that your're (well, your are not) eating something 'almost' plastic.

    I'm not to fond of magarine myself, but I;ll have to eat it, my mom only buys magarine (its cheaper..:p i think)

    But what I've learned from this: Magarine is good anti bug stuff..!

    That, and it has to be something that will actually SPREAD on soft bread, so I only get the tub stuff. And I just looked it up online, and I was pretty sure it was margarine, and I was right...that sheds spread stuff. Strange though...I never even THOUGHT about reading the label of my margarine/butter package. I read the labels on other things.
