MARGARINEA plastic substitute for butter?

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?

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?
