The Benefits of Butter
For those of you that still insist margarine is better than butter...read on!!!
BOTH have the same amount of calories.
FACTS OF BUTTER:
Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at
8 grams compared to 5 grams for margarine.
Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.
Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a very 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.
FACTS OF MARGARINE:
Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.
It triples the risk of coronary heart disease in men
Increases total cholesterol and LDL .. (this is the bad cholesterol.)
Lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol) ..
Very high in trans fatty acids .
Increases the risk of cancers by up to five fold ...
Lowers quality of breast milk ...
Decreases immune response ...
Decreases insulin response
And ... the most disturbing fact? ...
Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC!
This fact alone is 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 a shaded outside 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 NNV! (No Nutritional Value)
3. nothing will grow on it . even those teeny weeny micro-organisms will not a find a place to grow! Why? Because it is nearly plastic.
Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?
