Butter or Margarine. . . . .?
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 flavoring’s.
DO YOU KNOW.. the difference between margarine and butter? >Read on to the end…gets very interesting!
Both have the same amount of calories.

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.

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC..
This fact alone was 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 test 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:
1) No flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)
2) it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny micro organisms 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?

However back to the subject, in rich countries food prices are not an issue so normal people can buy butter if margarine is harmful. But in poor countries butter is normally much expensive than margarine and normal people who are mostly people who live a hand to mouth existence in countries like India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka use only margarine. For them butter is a luxury with many never having tasted butter! I remember another email forward like this about dangerous paracetamol tablet side effects. We shouldn’t forget that this can be dirty marketing ploy by butter manufactures to discredit margarine competition and increase butter sales for their company. Such dirty games have happened before. However if what this email says about margarine is true then what is situation of millions and millions for people in India and other countries? What steps will the World Heath Organisation or WHO and other global food consumer and food safety organizations take? Are they even aware of this or is this brushed under the carpet for dollars from multi-national food companies? Whatever the reason it is their responsibility to check and nullify the fears of the consumers or to ban margarine.
