I don't know what brands of margarine you have in the USA but over here in the UK we have one called Flora that boasts that it "promotes a healthy heart" as it's high in Omega 3 oils. When my husband had a heart attack 2 years ago, he was told never to eat butter again and to use this Flora. He was also told the most cheese he should eat is one thin slice a week
Now it seems that advice is going out of the window as now the med profession are saying eat more cheese and dairy products as it protects the heart
I think if we followed all the so-called dietary advice we'd all die of starvation
