    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 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 for margarine.

    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 and 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.

    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 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).


    Open 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 no nutritional 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?

    Very interesting. You know that I have to ask though.

    Where is there any creditable evidence of what you posted?

    Links please....

    Chain mail posting, are we? If I recall correctly, margarine was developed as a feasible butter substitute for an army and the yellow coloring was initially banned because the dairy industry didn't want any dipping into their pool.

    We make and eat a lot of butter at the 'compound'. Margarine: talk about a solution in search of a problem. It's truly amazing the degree to which we slowly poison ourselves in modern America. Margarine is the tip of the iceberg. The sad thing about butter - as with for example milk, a tomato, a strawberry, or an apple - most have never tasted the real thing. We perceive these foods to be "dangerous". Can't even find them in supermarkets. Yet Mountain Dew, Twinkies, and Cocoa Puffs are fully sanctioned by the state - as are reconstituted chicken parts for school lunches. Or oil based cheese substitute pizzas. You might be arrested giving natural food to a minor. Go figure. (And follow the money)

    Just thought it was interesting. Trying to keep my posts safe and non-controversial. I guess it's nearly impossible.

    I don't use butter that often, so I usually buy popinjay butters like Kerrygold, Plugra and the like.

    I grew up in a small town, my dad owned a creamery. I helped him make 2,000# batches of butter twice a week. We put butter in copious amounts on everything. I love me my butter.
    But. Now that I'm divorced I don't go through perishable quick enough, so I keep a container of I Cant Believe it's not Butter in the fridge. It's not as good as real butter, but for quick snacks it's a lot easier than trying to thaw out a little bit of butter. Either that, or have my toast ripped to shreds.
