Poor Reporting on Margarine

There was a really crappy article in The National Post recently that helped to perpetuate the myths that margarine is one molecule away from plastic, was originally used to fatten turkeys AND increases one's risk for cancer five fold.

WOW, that certainly is giving one food product a lot of credit and power! If it can do all of those things, what can't margarine do?

Awful, awful, awful. These myths unduly harm consumers and may prevent them from consuming a product that not is harmless, but can help reduce the amount of saturated fat in one's diet.

Please do not believe these margarine email hoaxes that pop up sporadically. For more information, check out www.margarine.org.

Emma, out.
