Margerine is one molecule away from being plastic.

Yeah, but butter always tears the bread.

Synthetic fibers and fabrics have changed Society forever , the use of various Polyester stuffing has changed the way pillows, duvets, Ski coats etc are produced .

Today Hospitals will only use Fire Resistant blankets , pillow cases , sheeting etc and these are made Only from Polyester .

Police , army , all protection wear has Aramids which are stab resistant , heat resistant and have huge usage in the aircraft and marine industries .

Nylon is the basis of much , carpets and cords, netting etc

Try finding an Under Armour RUNNING Cycling shirt or Adidas or any brand not made from Polyester treated with anti odour or with added cool max or thermo max and so on , try finding running shoes that do not have Polyester EVERYWHERE

Plastic is a curse and a boon

I have endless clips from comedian Benny Hill.  One involves a contest for women to tell the difference between Stork margarine and butter.  Sadly I cannot find the colour version online to let you know what you've been missing.

Anyway, I have pasted the gory details to help you make an informed choice.  No need to thank me profusely.

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 colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter.  How do you like it?   They have come out  with some clever new flavourings..    

 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 flavours 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?

I use olive oil spread or Flora spreadable butter.

I hope I'm OK...

I tried to consult a witch-doctor and pick his brains on your prognosis.  Alas there's no reply on the bongo-bongo drums.  Instead of reading your palm or gazing into a crystal ball, they throw muti-medicine bones and invoke ancestoral wisdom while sky-high on cannabis dagga.  Apparently the best muti medicine comes from involuntary albino donations.

Hmmm... cannabis butter... now that's an idea!

Put that on your sandwich and smoke it!
