Ever since a kid, my father did not allow margarine in the house and we learned the importance of only using real butter for eating and cooking. In our family margarine was not considered edible years before my 9th grade science teacher warned us to never eat margarine or any fake dairy products like CoffeeMate and CoolWhip, which are both also poisons and near plastics.
Country Crock and Blue Bonnet is nothing more than crap It is poison and certainly should never be considered to be a food, or to be eaten!
These items are about the only "foods" more dangerous to eat than so called food made with "enriched" flour. 97% of all the so called "bread" in your grocery stores is NOT fit to be eaten!!! It is poison and probably the NUMBER ONE cause of diabetes! If it does not have "whole" grain listed first, then it really should not be eaten if it is being called bread, cookie, cake, or whatever.
A good sign to avoid is any so called food from one of the most evil and corrupt companies on Earth, Kraft! Kraft is perhaps the maker of more unsafe and deadly "foods" than any other manufacturer of fake foods out there!
Take heed and don't be part of the very stupid public eating poison and crap!
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 flavorings.
DO YOU KNOW...the difference between margarine and butter? 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) 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 only 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 weenie microorganisms will not a find a home to grow.
Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?
