Pass The Butter ... Please.

Happy Thanksgiving  Everyone
Pass The Butter ... Please.       

 was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys.  When the turkeys were killed, the people who had put money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product .    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 came out with some clever new flavorings....     
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 wheremargarine has a few and only because  they are added!  

 tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods.  

 has been around for centurieswhere 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 ( bad cholesterol) and
lowers HDL cholesterol, (good cholesterol)  

Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..

Lowers quality of 
breast milk  

Decreases immune response. 

insulin response.  

And  here's the most disturbing fact... HERE IS THE PART THAT  IS  VERY INTERESTING! 

 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 micro-organisms will not a find a home to grow.
Because it is nearly plastic .
Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?     
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.
