When you pick up a pack of margarine, you will notice that the cover reads “Cholesterol Free”. People often considered it to be an alternative to butter, one that is much healthier and offers more nutrients. However, the question is, are these assumptions true? Well, apparently not! Margarine contains an excessive quantity of trans-fats that also cause cholesterol levels to rise along with causing damages to the walls of blood vessels. It also increases the risks of cardiovascular diseases. Apparently, all the claims of being cholesterol free do not really stand true.
