I make no guarantees about the accuracy or non-accuracy of the contents of the following message. . . that said here goes:
    

Pass The Butter .. Please.    

    
    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  MOLECULE away 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?  

    Share This With Your Friends.....(If you want to butter them up')!

    Chinese Proverb: When someone shares something of value with you and you
    benefit from it,you have a moral obligation to share it with others.
    
    Pass the BUTTER.....PLEASE

I had no idea about the plastic and didn't know that microorganisms won't grow on it. I did know it was unhealthy and besides, I love butter!! One of the many reasons that caught my eye about St. Brigid of Ireland was her miracles with butter ('course she was also known as the Mary of Gaels).
