Pretty icky! 
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.
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
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.
Triple 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 fold.
Lowers quality of breast milk.
Decreases immune response.
Decreases insulin response.
And here's the most disturbing fact....
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). 
You can try this yourself:
Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded
area. Within a couple of days you will note 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?
