    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 heres 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: - Go on I dare ya :P

    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 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 I will have a coffee with that to go !!! ;D

    The standard advice for any information received on websites is "Dont believe all you read". Irony of that statement aside, I check Snopes.com for most things these days.

    Very close friend went through a cancer operation recently and during the convalesence the surgeon came to see him and have a chat. The first thing he asked Mark was "do you eat butter or margarine?" The surgeon is so convinced of margarines evils he is keeping annecdotals on all cancer patients in this particular hospital in the hopes he will convince someone to fund his studies. I too only eat butter (country boy who prefers food made by nature not scientists) but surely everything in moderation.... exceptions for coffee naturally.

    Re: Pass The Butter .. Please.

    Two points here out of interest:

    1 I am old enough to remember the tremendous fight that the margarine companies had to get their product accepted for domestic sale as a butter substitute in the fifties [I think]. The entrenched Butter interests at all levels, dairy farmers, butter manufacturers and political interests mostly Country Party fought tooth and nail with outrageous false claims to keep margarine from the shop shelves. Margarine of course was introduced at about half the price of butter. Now I think there is little price difference.

    2 Regarding colour, in some overseas countries, I think USA, some Middle East and European countries you will find butter is white. We are one of the few places which introduce artificial colouring.

    Re: Pass The Butter .. Please.

    I would like to point out something that a lot of you blokes have probably NOT noticed about "margarine"...because Im sure your wives buy the stuff...

    Anyway...Margarine is not called margarine anymore...I dont know why or when it was changed but I bet you 5 bucks that you cant find any such thing as "margarine" on your stoopidmarket shelves any more.

    Rather all it is called now is "spread"...

    Go and have a look...

    See if Im wrong... ;)

    I also prefer butter in its pure form as well...and I really hate those ads on tv atm about how bad butter is for your kids because I believe that this so called "spread" is the greater evil... :(

    I always preferred the taste of butter.......mmmmmmmmmmmm butter.
    I recall [as kids] someone suggested we stick our noses into the margarine tub and take a sniff.........Yuck it smells like a nasty chemical factory.

    Re: Pass The Butter .. Please.

    I, too, am a butter girl through and through - Im sorry, but steak cooked with oil is just not the same! We border on offending my mother in law at times because when we go up to stay for a weekend, well either take or buy butter on the way.

    Similarly, we dont touch artificial sugars, either - Nutrasweet, etc leaves a long, lingering icky sweet taste in my mouth for hours afterwards. *shudder*

    Cheers
