Margarine or Butter??? DID YOU KNOW

This was given to me by another group so I am passing it on to you for your information, I welcome your comments they are welcome if you have more information.......Please feel free to share..

Thank-you
Phil



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?   
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 for 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. 
Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in  other foods.. 

Butter  has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and    
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.

Triples 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 times..

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  MOLECUL Eaway  from being PLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT 
These facts alone were 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 open in your garage or shaded  area.  Within a couple of days you will notice 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?

112 on your cell phone





Interesting

 
Some knew about the red light on cars, but not the *112. 
It was about 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend. An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren's parents have always told her never to pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.
 

Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called 
*112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren't, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.

Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.
I never knew about the 
*112 Cell Phone Feature, but especially
for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a safe place.
 
*Speaking to a service representative at ** Bell ** Mobility confirmed
 that *112 was a direct link to State trooper info. So, now it's your turn to let yourfriends know about *112.

 Send this to every woman (and man) you know; it may save a life.
