Do You Know What Margarine Was Designed For??? You Butter!!!

butter vs margarineThis may be the most interesting thing you learn all week…

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. But when it killed the turkeys, those who had put all the money into this research wanted a return on their investment so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product. It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow coloring and sold it to unsuspecting people to use in place of butter. How do you like that? They have come out with some clever new flavorings and the Big Food Industry got behind it and once again used their marketing strategies to convince the public, not that it was the same as butter, but that it was Better than butter!

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 MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC… and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT.

These facts alone should be enough to have you avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

Open 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 even find a home to grow.

Why? Because it is nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

So, if this has enlightened you today, please recommend this blog to your friends!

THE DIRTY SECRET ABOUT DIABETES, CANCER, AND HEART TROUBLE…

It may shock you to understand why diabetes, the third leading cause of death among African Americas, affects one in ten Africans in America, twice the rate of white Americans at all adult age levels. The cause is something our federal government knew back as far as the 1940’s and brushed it under the rug as it threatened their purpose.

More than fifty years ago, Joe Nichols, a physician and surgeon who founded the Natural Food Associates (NFA) in Atlanta, Texas, reported that a survey on farms throughout the United States were using this new government-recommended chemical pesticide. Later this was linked to metabolic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and heart trouble, was indeed the result of this chemical poison dumped on fertile soil.

Women Who Smoke Cigarettes Are More Likely To Develop Heart Disease Than Men…

This article was written By Andrew Seaman

WASHINGTON | Thu Aug 11, 2011 2:37pm EDT

(Reuters) – Women who smoke cigarettes are more likely to develop heart disease than men, says new research released on Wednesday.

After reviewing data on 2.4 million people and 44,000 cardiac events, the article’s authors found female smokers have a 25 percent greater risk for coronary heart disease than males who smoke cigarettes.

The researchers, published in The Lancet medical journal, also found the difference in risk for male and female smokers increased by two percent for every year they smoke.

“It hasn’t been widely recognized that there had been this sex difference,” said Rachel Huxley of the University of Minnesota, the article’s lead author, in an interview.

The findings could be attributed to physical differences between men and women, or differences in smoking habits, according to the study.

“For example, there are some data that indicate women will absorb more of the harmful agents in a cigarette compared to men,” said Huxley. “Women may inhale more smoke or they may smoke more intensively.”

Huxley said her next step is to complete a similar study to examine if the same finding can be applied to other complications related to smoking, such as strokes.

A fifth of the world’s 1.1 billion smokers are women and an analysis released in March said millions of women in developing countries risked disease and death as their rising economic and political status leads them to smoke more.

Do You Know What Interesterified Oils Are??? YOU SHOULD!!!

We all  need to be aware that Food companies are now calling “Trans Fats” Interesterified Fats to fool educated consumers. It has been very popular for consumers to avoid or eliminate Trans fats from our diets over the past several years which has hurt the food manufactures where it really hurts the most. However they are getting around the trans fat labeling by mixing small amounts of fully hydrogenated oil with liquid polyunsaturate oils and calling it “Interesterified Oil.” They claim that fully hydrogenated oil is healthier. Since there is less trans fat, they can sell this product to food manufacturers for use in commercial dressings, baked goods, candies and anything else that used to have partially hydrogenated oil in the ingredient list.

We should also be aware that a food with under 0.5g of trans fat is allowed to be labeled as “Trans-Fat-Free” in the US. So, when reading food labels…”Trans-Fat-Free” doesn’t mean it has no trans fats within it! Now we need to spread the word that once again the Big Food Industry and it’s partner the FDA has changed the rules in the middle of the game and allowed another toxic ingredient into our food known as INTERESTERIFIED OILS or FATS…

The Reason Green Tea is Beneficial to Your Health…

Our favorite government organization, the FDA, has refused to allow a health claims for green tea on labels. However, the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR)  scientists presented new evidence about phytochemicals in green tea that may help prevent normal cells from developing into cancer and spreading.  Green tea contains high levels of the phytochemical EGCG which is a powerful antioxidant and may help prevent both heart disease and cancer.
