My brother and I did this after we noticed the flies loved my toast in the morning. I use butter. He is a margarine fan. No flies for him.
So, we took a stick of each. On a piece of wood on the wood pile. The butter was gone right away. Ants, flies, chipmunks and whatever. The margarine just made a mess. I never liked margarine. I also have no health issues with my heart or such. I may be crazy, but I am a healthy big guy who happens to be crazy. It is basically plastic.
Anything my dogs sniff and sorta eat. I will not eat either.
I have never met a stranger, I have met some strange ones.
A few guys seem to have gotten a little side tracked. Maybe they are the not so smart ants. Look at those guys just sorta floating over there. I like to think they've got the margarine blindness-hahaha!

My aunt and her family have been margarine-crazy for as long as I can remember. I could never understand, and after that photo, I am confirmed in my position. I see a lot of people with the pro-margarine mindset also ascribing to the all-antibacterial soap all-the-time life philosophy, and I see, probably as a result of both practice and mindset, people with way more allergies to food and environmental agents than I ever thought normal. As to the margarine specifically, the only basis for the unhealthiness of butter that I can see is the same as that for animal fat, or lard. If the fat product you're taking is from livestock that is raised in a healthy way, the product will be good for you; if not, then not. I'd like to see some basis in numbers for this, but Paul has stated on at least one podcast that organic lard is almost a superfood for its nutritional benefits.

That add for margarine can be prohibited in order to foster better health

In checking out products containing trans fats, I discovered that some brands of microwave popcorn are the worst offenders.
Some brands of margarine contain just a pinch of olive oil. The labels make a big deal about that ingredient. The unsuspecting consumer could easily be duped into thinking that olive oil is the principal or the only ingredient. >
