Eat Butter rather than margarine
Butter is an example of eating closer to the ground than 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 to still get paid, so they figured out what to do with this product. Add yellow coloring and flavorings to it and sell it to humans.
Believe it or not margarine has the same amount of calories as butter. Butter has only a bit more fat then margarine, which is loaded with trans fatty acids. Still, margarine is sold as a health food while butter is demonized. Butter is a real food and has real fat, it can increase the absorption of other foods.
Margarine is very high in trans fatty acids. Fatty Acids can raise the risk of coronary heart disease. Margarine has been shown to Increase 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. It lowers the quality of breast milk. Decreases immune response. Decreases insulin response.
And here’s the most disturbing fact…. Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC… and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT
Cool experiment –
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 or fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)
* it will not rot or smell differently
*nothing will grow on it. Why? Because margarine is almost plastic. Would might as well melt Tupperware and spread that on your bagel!
SO EAT BUTTER!
