Snopes.com Debunks Margarine Myths

Snopes.com is one of my favorite Web sites out there. If you haven’t heard of it, basically it’s a Web site that debunks common myths. For example, will eating pop rocks and soda at the same time make your stomach explode? Or, will a tooth left in a glass of soda dissolve overnight?

Snopes.com debunks myths of all kind from fraud to old wives’ tales to food myths. They have an entry on the email circulating about margarine. This email contains a significant amount of misinformation, specifically that margarine was made as a turkey fattener and that it is one molecule away from plastic.

Check out what Snopes.com has to say about this myth.
