Dangerous Margarine - What Doctors Don't Tell You

I got this emails telling about the origin of margarine. Many people in poorer countries like India etc. you it heavily in place of the much expensive butter. If what it says here about Margarine is true it is high health hazard. I hope authorities look into this and take proper steps for the benifit of the people. Convey this message to your friends and family.

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.

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 trains fatty acids.
Triple 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 fold.

Lowers quality of breast milk.

Decreases immune response.

Decreases insulin response.

And here's 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 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?

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.

So..., DO IT !

Parenting Nightmares - A Mother and a Five-Year-Old Son

My cousin forwarded this interesting email to me.

DELAY TRAIN - Good morning!

A mother was working in the kitchen, listening to her five-year-old son
Playing with his new electric train in the living room. She heard the
stop & her son saying, "All of you bastards who want off, get the hell off
now, 'cause this is the last stop! And all of you bastards who are getting
on, get your ass in the train, Cause we're going down the tracks."

The horrified mother went in & told her son,
"We don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to
your room & stay there for TWO HOURS.

When you come out, you may play with your train, but I want you to use
nice language."

Two hours later, the son came out of the bedroom & resumed playing with
his train. Soon the train stopped & the mother heard her son say, "All
passengers who are disembarking the train, please remember to take all of
your belongings with you. We thank you for traveling with us today & hope
your trip was a pleasant one." She hears the little boy continue, "For
those of you just boarding, we ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under
your seat. Remember, there is no smoking on the train. We hope you will have a
pleasant and relaxing journey with us today." As the mother began to
smile, the child added,
"For those of you who are pissed off about the TWO HOUR
delay, please direct your complaints to the fat bitch in the kitchen."

Thank you for traveling with us.
