Butter vs. Margarine

This is pretty interesting....

BUTTER
DID 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.
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 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.

And now, for Margarine...

Very high in trans fatty acids...
Triple risk of coronary heart disease..
Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol)...
Lowers
HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol) ... Increases the risk of
cancers by
up to five fold... Lowers quality of breast milk... Decreases immune
response... Decreases insulin response. And here is the most disturbing
fact....

HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

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 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?

I think it is untrue as a diet book I was just reading said margarine was better to use than butter as long as it did not have trans fat...
