: Which one is the one that's better, margarine or butter? I can never remember.
Butter is better. Margarine is made from synthetic fat, i.e, hydrogenated vegetable oil. These contain trans fatty acids that have been linked to arterial plaque and cancer. It is best to avoid all products that contain hyrdrogenated vegetable oils. Saturated fat, like that found in butter, is not the bad guy that it has been made out to be by the government and medical associations. Alan S.
