INTEREST FACTS: BUTTER or MARGERINE



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 colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you
like it? They have come out with some clever new flavourings....

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...

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 flavours 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.

Funny fact:

Flies don't land on margarine.

Flies rather eat shit than touch margarine. That's how good that shit is for you :P

I call bullshit on the ONE MOLECULE away from being plastic, and deception on the 'shares 27 ingredients with PAINT."

Plastics are polymers with molecular weights in the hundreds of thousands. The fatty acids in margarine have molecular weights in the low hundreds.

ETA: I'm going back to look at the link more closely.

ETA 2: Your link didn't support any of the claims they made.

Conclusion: No evidence for this woo.

True

Margarine is as close to plastic as any other fat actually.
But the reason to drop margarine, for me, it's not that one.
let me copy/paste this little article:


__________________________________________

HOW IS MARGARINE MADE?
Ever wonder how is margarine made?

Many people probably know it is made by a process called hydrogenation. But few are aware of the details of what goes on during hydrogenation.

Here is a step-by-step description of the hydrogenation process.

How is margarine made: Step 1

Margarine makers start with cheap. poor quality vegetable oils, such as corn, cottonseed, soybeans, safflower seeds and canola.

These oils have already turned rancid from being extracted from oil seeds using high temperature and high pressure. Rancid oils are loaded with free radicals that react easily with other molecules, causing cell damage, premature aging and a host of other problems.

The last bit of oil is removed with hexane, a solvent known to cause cancer. Although this hexane subsequent removed, traces of it are inevitably left behind.

Unfit for consumption

Moreover, some of these oils are not suitable for human consumption to begin with.

Cottonseed oil, one of the most popular margarine ingredients, has natural toxins and unrefined cottonseed oil is used as a pesticide. The toxin, gossypol, is removed during refining.

Cottonseed oil also contains far too much Omega-6 fatty acids in relation to Omega 3. While both Omega 6 and Omega 3 are essential fatty acids, an imbalance between the two is widely believed to cause various health problems, including heart disease.

Most experts on the subject believe that a healthy ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 is between 1:1 and 1:2. Cotton seed oil, however, has over 50 percent omega 6 and only trace amounts of Omega 3, giving a ratio of 1: several hundred or more.

As cotton is one of the most heavily sprayed crops, there are also concerns that cottonseed oil may be highly contaminated with pesticide residues. However, insufficient testing has been done.

Canola oil, which is widely touted as the healthiest oil of all, has problems as well. Consumption of Canola has been linked with vitamin E deficiency as well as growth retardation. For this reason, Canola oil is not allowed to be used in the manufacture of infant formula.

The oils used for making margarine are also among the Big Four genetically modified crops – soy, corn, rapeseed / Canola and cotton.

How is margarine made: Step 2

The raw oils for making margarine are steam cleaned. This destroys all the vitamins and antioxidants.

However, the residues of pesticides and solvents – that is, hexane – remain.

How is margarine made: Step 3


The oils are mixed with finely ground nickel, a highly toxic substance that serves as a catalyst for the chemical reaction during the hydrogenation process.

Other catalysts may be used, but these, too, are highly toxic.


How is margarine made: Step 4

The oils are then put under high temperature and pressure in a reactor.

Hydrogen gas is introduced. The high temperature and pressure, together with the presence of nickel catalyst, causes hydrogen atoms to be forced into the oil molecules.

If the oil is partially hydrogenated, it turns from liquid into a semi-solid.

Trans fats are formed during partial hydrogenation. These are fat molecules that have been twisted out of shape. In liquid oils, the molecules are bent, with the hydrogen atoms on opposite sides of each other.

During partial hydrogenation, the molecules are somewhat straightened and now all the hydrogen molecules are on the same side.

If the oil is fully hydrogenated, it turns into a hard solid that cannot be eaten. It no longer contains trans fats because the "out of shape” oil molecules have all been broken up to form straight chains. But this does not mean they have become healthy again because of all the unnatural steps above.


How is margarine made: Step 5

What comes out of the partial hydrogenation process is a smelly, lumpy, grey grease.

To remove the lumps, emulsifiers – which are like soaps – are mixed in.

How is margarine made: Step 6

The oil is steam cleaned (again!) to remove the odor of chemicals. This step is called deodorization and it again involves high temperature and high pressure.

How is margarine made: Step 7

The oil is then bleached to get rid of the grey color.

How is margarine made: Step 8

Synthetic vitamins and artificial flavors are mixed in.

A natural yellow color is added to margarine, as synthetic coloring is not allowed!

In fact, early last century, all coloring was not allowed and margarine was white. This was to protect consumers so that they do not get butter and margarine mixed up.

How is margarine made: Step 9

Finally, the margarine is promoted to the public as a health food – with the full endorsement of many scientists, doctors, nutritionists and health authorities.

I'm not defending margarine, but if one is going to slam it, slam it for the right reasons. OP gave a bunch of claims that appear to be unsupported.
