Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Margarine
Margarine vs. Butter
Answer: This battle has been fought for years. It is unclear which is the "best" fat; although, lower fat is probably the answer. The current hot topic is using monosaturated fats like olive oil. This actually appears to lower risk in some studies. There is a margarine which is made of olive oil. This is my preference. But, just keep the intake low.
