Call in to speak with the host
In 1813, French Scientist Michel Eugene Chevreul discovered a new fatty acid that he dubbed acide margarique, after the Greek word margarites or "pearly." This is the discovery (or creation) of Margarine. Ever really wondered what the big deal is over a semi-solid emulsion composed, basically, of hydrogenated or refined vegetable fats and water. When I was a kid, margarine existed to protect us from the evils of butter; In recent times it has become a far worse devil. Margarine is the Beast and the Dragon in Revelation all rolled in to one. Revelation, that creepy LSD fest which ends the Christian holy book. Horsemen, death, plagues, Armageddon and such...Back on topic. Margarine is our topic this week on REASON Podcast. If you have ever had Margarine or heard tell of its evils call in and join the conversation this Sunday, April 14th, 8pm EST.
