    Hi folks, hope you haven't missed me tooo much today,
    I got a interesting email from my uncle, that i would like you all to read..any thoughts on this!!!!!

    [FONT=&quot]Margarine[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]was [/FONT][FONT=&quot]originally[/FONT][FONT=&quot] 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. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    DO YOU KNOW.. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]the difference between margarine and butter? [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Read on to the end...gets very interesting! [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]

    Both have the same amount of calories.

    Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]8 grams [/FONT][FONT=&quot]compared to [/FONT][FONT=&quot]5 grams. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Eating [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]margarine[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]can [/FONT][FONT=&quot]increase[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]heart disease[/FONT][FONT=&quot] in women by [/FONT][FONT=&quot]53%[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Eating [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]butter[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]increases the absorption of many [/FONT][FONT=&quot]other nutrients[/FONT][FONT=&quot] in other foods. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Butter[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]has many [/FONT][FONT=&quot]nutritional benefits[/FONT][FONT=&quot] where [/FONT][FONT=&quot]margarine[/FONT][FONT=&quot] has a [/FONT][FONT=&quot]few[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    only because they are added! [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]

    Butter[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]tastes much better [/FONT][FONT=&quot]than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Butter[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] has been around for [/FONT][FONT=&quot]centuries[/FONT][FONT=&quot] where [/FONT][FONT=&quot]margarine[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]has been around for less than [/FONT][FONT=&quot]100 years[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    And now, for Margarine.. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]

    Very high in trans [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]fatty acids[/FONT][FONT=&quot] .

    Triple risk of coronary [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]heart disease[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    Increases total cholesterol[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]and [/FONT][FONT=&quot]LDL[/FONT][FONT=&quot] (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol) [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Increases the risk of cancers up to five fold. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]

    Lowers quality of [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]breast milk. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Decreases immune response.

    Decreases [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]insulin[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]response. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    And here's the most disturbing fact.... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING! [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]

    Margarine[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] is but [/FONT][FONT=&quot]ONE MOLECULE[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]away from being[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]PLASTIC..[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    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 [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]no nutritional value [/FONT][FONT=&quot]; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow. Why? Because it [/FONT][FONT=&quot]is nearly plastic[/FONT][FONT=&quot] . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

    Share This With Your Friends......(If you want to 'butter them up')! [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
