According to the Today Tonight show aired (Nov. 2004), featured Brian Bury (the (ex?) channel 9 weatherman) who has a serious eye condition which may result in him eventually going blind. According to the doctor that was on the show, it is as a result of margarine in our diet. The same doctor predicted 30 years ago that we would one day have a problem with cholesterol and diabetes.
Do you know the difference between margarine and butter?
Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods.
Health risks of eating margarine...
And here is the most disturbing fact about margarine....
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).
Prove it to yourself...
Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will note a few 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 micro-organisms will not find a home to grow.
Why? Because it is nearly plastic.
Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?
