Karlin, thank you for suggesting this forum and thanks to Jesse for allowing it. :)

I found this information at another site and thought it would be appropriate to post it here. The site did not list the source or give a link, unfortunately.

Perhaps someone else can find a link that supports the information.

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 trans fatty acids . . .

Triple risk of coronary heart disease . . . Increases total cholesterol . . .
Increases the risk of cancers by up to five fold Lowers quality of breast milk.

Decreases immune response. Decreases insulin response.

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 microorganisms 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?

No, but I have never used margarine in my life either.
