Pass The Butter .. Please.

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).     
 
You  can try this yourself:  
 
Purchase  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 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')!  
 
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.    
Pass the BUTTER    PLEASE , and forward to family and friends whose health you hold dear
