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

    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 Transfatty 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

        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

    *  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?

    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…
