If you are buying anything other than "old-fashioned" or see-it-ground-before-your-eyes-nothing-but-peanuts peanut butter then you are consuming peanut butter flavored margerine (probably with added sugar). This is largely hydrogenated oil, transfats that are beginning to get negative poblicity and something you might want to reconsider as a building block for the body in which you are looking forward to enjying a long and healthy retirement.

Sorry, Charlie... In 2001 the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service released a study that showed all major brands of peanut butter -- both natural and commercial -- contain ``non-detectable' levels of trans fats.

The report is described on the Agricultural Research Services website,
