Do you eat Margarine? Ever wonder why it doesnt rot or flies wont eat it?
(I dont know if any of the below is true or not, but it looks interesting.)
---------------------'

Pass The Butter ~ ~ ~ ~ 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 to recoup their money 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.

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 ab sorption 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.... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

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 weenie 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")!

Hey, if I slather myself in margarine, would it be an effective insect repellant?
Well it seems so real I can see it
And it seems so real I can feel it
And it seems so real I can taste it
And it seems so real I can hear it
So why can't I touch it?

there are some liquid vegetable oil margarines that aren't as bad for you and are lower in calories.. they are nice because they are more spreadable and not so hard and come in tubs... Brummel and Brown with yogurt in it is good.

I use mostly butter and avoid all trans fats when possible too, but not all non-butter spreads are bad.

It is amazing though how many people bake stuff at home like cookies with shortening.. it tastes so awful compared to butter.. real cooks use butter!

peace

lmao

if your really want trans fats take your typical bag of microwave popcorn which is about the single most concentrated source of trans fats I've seen in all my browsing.. many bags have 15-20 grams per bag.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA and that isn't the end of the fuck-over if you are stupid enough to eat margarine. Google the azo coal tar dye called "butter yellow" that was put in the junk to color it for it's sale to the public. That and other azo food and clothing dyes that turn into benzene when they are excreated through the skin and are hit by UV rays are the real cause of most skin cancers in the last seventy years.

Originally made to fatten up Turkeys.

100 years ago flouride was used as RAT POISON as well.

Good post OP. Margarine is another example of a freak food that is commonly used which can and will kill you. Yet it is allowed on shelves by the FDA and other regulatory bodies. What does this tell you about them? There are many other freak foods like margarine that are to be avoided like the plague.

Do some research on this short list of freak "foods" that are sold as "healthy alternatives": Canola oil (rapeseed), all Soy products, alfalfa sprouts, cashews. Avoid them at all costs if you want to stay healthy or get your health back. Also, stay away from allopathic doctors.

Here's the whole article on butter, as opposed to the snippet that was taken out. Good to have the whole story.

Not stirring up anything but found only that the small exerpt of the article not as informative as the whole article.

The only issue I had with your post OP was the 'one molecule away from plastic' statement. Fortunately this was addressed in the complete article posted elsewhere.

I quote:

It is not true that margarine is "but ONE MOLECULE from being PLASTIC," and, even if it was, this doesn't mean that eating margarine is like eating plastic (though some would argue it tastes like it). Many items in nature are chemically similar to one another, but that doesn't make them similar in appearance or effect. It's not the molecules that a substance is made of that defines it, but rather how those molecules are arranged.

I only use butter for the last 30+ years. Better taste and better for you.

Why use a substitute when a substitute isn't even necessary?

I'm glad someone brought this up. The simplistic scare tactics ("it's almost identical to plastic!") just muddle the understanding of the issue. (Not that I don't agree that butter is better than margarine).

I also want to point out that sometimes it's the amount of a substance that determines if it is toxic or not. Selenium is an essential nutrient in small quantities, but you don't want to have too much.
