    [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back. [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]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 flavorings.

[/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]And here's the most disturbing fact.... ; HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING! [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]Margarine is but [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]ONE MOLECULE [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]away from being [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]PLASTIC [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif].. [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]

    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
    [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]will not a find a home to grow. [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]Why? [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]Because it is nearly plastic. [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast? [/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Default Sans Serif,Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]

  6. Thanks for posting. I didn't know this.

    My mom warned me years ago not to eat margarine.
    Thanks for posting the info....
    I'll let my mom know she was right!
     
  8. thanks for sharing that info!!!!

  9. Thanks for posting! I had NO idea!
     
  10. Thanks for posting that.
    I have known about the evils of margerine for years now ( I am in the food industry).
    Check your food labels for evidence of it, especially in baked goods.
    Butter is the only way to go!!
     
  11. Thank god for my grandmother who raised me up to believe that margarine is evil and that butter is the only thing worth using!
     
  12. Gross... I stay away from hydrogenated fats. Yuck.
     
  13. yeah i've read this one before. thank the lord my parents raised us with the real deal - butter, full fat milk, brown sugar etc...
     
  14. Same here.
    I've always heard that real butter was better for you anyway..especially seeing as how margarine has virtually the same chemical makeup as plastic. :yucky:
     
  15. I grew up on margarine back when all the studies said it lowered cholesterol and was better than butter. I love the stuff.
