LOL, well...not all margarines are created equally. There are several made specifically to lower cholesterol these days!
It doesn't really concern me (or my clients) however, as I use 100% pure butter. No shortening, no margarine. But this article is a bit loose with the facts, and I would recommend everyone does their own research, including through your FDA, to find out the reality of what they are ingesting.
I'd rather eat everything in moderation (including alcohol, butter and sugar) than eat anything manufactured and processed like margarine, but each to his own :-)
I remembered this e-rumor from about 5-6 years ago. Debunked.
Before reposting these things that you read, there are great sites like SNOPES and TRUTHORFICTION that have researched these claims. As you will see, it is a mixture of some truth and a lot of fiction. You will also see these repeated on Facebook attributed to Clint Eastwood, Bill Gates, and George Carlin.
If it is a re-post designed to make you think, check it out at one of these sites first. Usually it is a lot of hooey.
AHooey is such a great word!!
You can't believe most of what you read on the internet.
