    Going around on FB. Oye. Pretty sure it's old but the first time I've seen it in full.

    "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 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).

    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 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.

    Lost it at "ONE MOLECULE away"
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    That's an utterly meaningless statement.

    Water's one molecule away from being explosive hydrogen gas. The oxygen in the air we breathe is one molecule away from being poisonous ozone.

    As for the "it's white until it has colour added", well, yes. Again, so what? How many cheeses do you think are naturally orange or red in colour?

    It doesn't even make that much sense. That'd be apt if the claim was "Each molecule of margarine is one atom away from a molecule of plastic".

    If you take plastic and change one molecule of the plastic for something else, all you get is very slightly less plastic, and a molecule of something else.

    Lead is only three sub-atomic particles away from gold and, if you know anything about chemistry, that's even SMALLER than a molecule!! My God, we could totally make gold!

    Artificial sweeteners in soda pop and other things are really neurotoxins that cause obesity and diabetes...
    A new disease model directly linking being dumb with being fat. Controversial to say the least.
