This topic needs to be thoroughly aired and seriously studied.
So much vested interest influences information from all sides. Certainly, a great deal of the criticisms levelled at the synthetic margarine product(s) are convincing and health risks are real.
With butter, the heart medical industry are still opposing “animal” fats, their conclusions also require assessment.
On the whole, it seems to me that butter is better.

Like my grandmother before me, I have never had a tub of margarine in the house. Perhaps thanks to her, my gut instinct has always told me that butter is better for you.
Not only does butter taste incomparably better, it’s a natural product that human beings have been eating and cooking with for centuries without damaging their health.
Why swap it for margarine, a highly synthetic and unpleasant-tasting concoction laced with additives and cheap, low-grade oils refined on an industrial scale?
