Margarine and Nutritional Armageddon

In the over 40 years that American medicine has been pushing margarine down the throat of its followers (if the rate has remained constant), over 1,200,000 deaths are attributed to its namesake...partially hydrogenated vegetable oil and that is just in America which is about 5% of the world’s population.

Margarine and Nutritional Armageddon

Article#: 691

The writings in the majority text Authorized King James bible are not just printers' ink and paper, they are in very fact the inerrent words of the living God. The scriptures are the source of all foundational truth. When you reject the truth you will reap the sowing of your error. Man proves the scriptures to be supernaturally penned on a daily basis. The fruits of his contrary walking are the proof. And so it is with today's subject.

GOD SAID, thousands of years ago, long before science's latest discoveries, that butter is a beautiful food. Deuteronomy, Chapter 32, Verses 9-14:

9 For the LORD'S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.

10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.

11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:

12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.

13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;

14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.

When the LORD visited Abraham in the plains of Mamre just prior to the cataclysmic destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, he ate a meal that Abraham had prepared.

Genesis, Chapter 18, Verses 7-8:

7 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.

8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

In etymology, which is the study of language, there is a principle known as the "rule of first occurrence." It means the first time a word occurs in language typically defines it's original meaning. The account I've just read to you in Genesis is butter's initial entry into the written world and it is sitting on God's supper plate.

God's Word prophesies of the mighty Lord of Glory Jesus Christ and writes in Isaiah, Chapter 7, Verse 14-15:

14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.

Butter comes highly endorsed.

MAN SAID: Forget the Bible. It's full of old archaic concepts that have no bearing on today. Its teachings are just wrongheaded such as the Bible's endorsement of butter. Butter is a killer and we have replaced it with margarine—a better, man-concocted improvement. 

Now THE RECORD. Part of the sub-headline in a feature article in Better Nutrition reads, "How the Margarine Craze Brought America to the Brink of Nutritional Armageddon." Margarine is partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. According to Dr. W. Willett, PhD, MD, of Harvard, "It can be conservatively estimated that approximately 30,000 deaths per year in the U.S. are attributable to trans-fatty acids from partially hydrogenated vegetable oil." That is exactly what margarine is.

In the over 40 years that American medicine has been pushing margarine down the throats of its followers (if the rate has remained constant), over 1,200,000 deaths are attributed to its namesake...partially hydrogenated vegetable oil and that is just in America which is about 5% of the world's population.

The following was printed in Health Immunity Digest:

Warning: hydrogenation is dangerous to your health. Hydrogenated foods such as margarine, shortening and partially hydrogenated oils:

  • cause heart disease
  • increase LDL, the bad cholesterol, and lower HDL, the good cholesterol
  • increase inflammatory responses
  • cause toxicity in the liver
  • promote aging and free radical damage
  • inhibit immune function

The esteemed British medical journal, The Lancet, reported on a health study that followed 85,000 nurses since 1976. The study shows that the consumption of just four teaspoons a day of partially hydrogenated vegetable oil margarine increases the risk of coronary heart disease...and how about this, butter has no adverse effect.

The health periodical Second Opinion had this to say:

I've preached for years about the dangers of eating margarine as a substitute for real butter. Now the devastating results are starting to hit hard. In addition to it being nutrient-free, margarine is a saturated hydrogenated fat that causes our neurochemistry to go into a tailspin.

The doctor continues:

In contrast, essential fatty acids (such as butter) are just that, essential. The difference between trans-fatty acids and essential fatty acids is the exact difference between depression and a normal emotional state of mind. It's also a major factor that needs to be considered in greater detail in Alzheimer's and other brain illnesses.

Finally the doctor reports:

As you age, it's terribly important that you avoid any and all products that aren't real or have been altered by processing. That means you can toss out any margarine, Egg Beaters, and low-fat or no-fat dairy products.

Most are not aware that over 70% of the human brain is constructed of cholesterol and that butter is an excellent supporter of that neurological structure.

Earlier I estimated 1.2 million deaths as a result of margarine and its partially hydrogenated kin. If we prorate that number worldwide the death toll would be 24 million and that doesn't address the mental and emotional disorders it has and continues to contribute in.

GOD SAID butter.

MAN SAID: Forget the Bible. It's full of old archaic concepts that have no bearing on today. Its teachings are just wrongheaded such as the Bible's endorsement of butter. Butter is a killer and we have replaced it with margarine—a better, man-concocted improvement. 

Now you have THE RECORD.
