The difference between margarine and butter?

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

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 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.
Decreases insulin response.
And here's the most disturbing fact....


Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC..
This fact alone was 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.....(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.

So..., DO IT !

Sense of Freshness....

A while ago a new supermarket opened in Zanesville, OH.
It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh.

Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant
thunder and the smell of fresh rain.
When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and
you experience the scent of fresh mowed hay.
In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal
grilled steaks with onions.
When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle,
and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.
The bread department features the tantalizing smell of
fresh baked bread and cookies.
