Margarine vs. Butter

How to “butter up” your friends with Good and Bad Cholesterol


[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? …]

Both butter & margarine have the same amount of calories.


Butter Facts…

Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few 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.


Margarine Facts…

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

Margarine is very high in trans fatty acids.

Margarine’s triple risk of coronary heart disease.

Margarine increases total cholesterol and LDL (‘bad’ cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (‘good’ cholesterol).

Margarine increases the risk of cancers up to five fold.

Margarine lowers quality of breast milk.

Margarine decreases immune response.

Margarine decreases insulin response.

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC – i.e. it’s “hydrogenated’ (meaning that hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).


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 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”!
