Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC

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. 

The difference between margarine and butter:
  
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 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.

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.

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT.

Open 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.

* it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those 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?

911 Call

Reginald Peterson of Jacksonville, Florida called police when Subway employees left off his sauce. 

He then called back to complain that officers weren’t responding fast enough.

Haunted Wedding Dress

In 1849, a girl (Anna Baker) from a rich Pennsylvania family fell in love with a low class iron worker. 

Anna’s father did not want her to marry a man from the lower class, and he forbid the wedding, for which Anna had already bought a dress. 

Heartbroken and disappointed, Anna decided to remain single for the rest of her life; she died as an old maid in 1914. 

Since then, her wedding dress has been allegedly cursed as visitors of Anna’s house (that was turned into a museum) often report seeing the dress moving within the glass box in which it was put on display.

Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet.

There was neither a Mother's Day nor a Father's Day.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write.

And, only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help...

There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A. !


Anesthesia

Anesthesia awareness is when a patient is perfectly conscious but unable to move during surgery.

It is believed to affect about 0.1–0.2 percent of all surgery patients in the US.

Anesthesia awareness occurs because two different types of anesthesia are used in surgery, one to disable the body’s movement and one to put you to sleep. 

This is what happened to 73-year-old Sherman Sizemore when he went in for exploratory surgery in 2006. 

It was a full 16 minutes before the anesthesiologist remembered to administer the drug to render Sizemore unconscious, meaning he felt a full 16 minutes of surgery.

Breast Implant Illness

For thousands of women, undergoing surgery to extract their breast implants was more fulfilling than the day of implantation. 

Despite countless surgeons refuting the claim that implants were making recipients sick, a group called Breast Implant Illness and Healing now has 15,000 women who claim that their new busts caused a myriad of symptoms due to rupture.

Some of those problems include seizures, migraines, blackouts, and autoimmune illnesses.

Ship Codes - Code Oscar

On a ship, a code oscar means someone has gone overboard. 

If the ship has to maneuver erratically to handle the situation, it must also send out blasts on the signal so that other ships nearby are aware of the fact that it is about to change its course. 

A code delta can mean that there is a biological hazard – though who knows what that might be on a passenger ship. 

Code Alpha often means “medical emergency”.

First successful organ transplant

The first successful organ transplant was a kidney transplant between twins that took place in Boston in 1954. 

Since then, medical science has made tremendous advances in this field, but organ transplantation remains a very complex procedure. 

The organs need to be harvested almost immediately upon death, implanted successfully, and then accepted by their new hosts. 

The process remains risky, and with long waiting lists for organs all over the world, there’s no room for mistakes.

Time Check

Time Check (usually taking a similar form to: “Time check: the time is 12:00”) can be a code in stores for a bomb alert. 

It alerts the staff to follow the bomb procedure, which can be to either try to locate any suspicious packages, or to prepare to get the hell out. 

If you hear a time check in a store, it is probably a good idea to start moving toward the exit.
