The conventional wisdom about what's good for you and what's bad has changed over the years. Here's what the experts now say:
BUTTER OR MARGARINE?
WHAT WE USED TO THINK Butter packs a heart attack in every teaspoon. Switch to margarine
WHAT DOCTORS SAY NOW Turning vegetable oil into sticks of margarine makes it just as bad
WHAT TO DO Go for margarine in a tub or squeeze bottle. Or switch to a butter substitute, such as Benecol that can boost good cholesterol
