Butter vs margarine. Which is better?

From a Cochrane Review meta-analysis of randomised clinical trials, replacing saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats reduced the risk of cardiovascular disease events such as myocardial infarction, stroke, angina, heart failure, peripheral vascular events and atrial fibrillation. Reducing saturated fat intake lowered blood cholesterol and cardiovascular events. Butter contains 70% saturated fat, 26% monounsaturated fat and 2% polyunsaturated fat. Monounsaturated margarine (e.g. canola oil, olive oil spreads) contains 23% saturated fat, 50% monounsaturated fat and 26% polyunsaturated fat. Polyunsaturated margarine (e.g. sunflower oil spreads) contains 22% saturated fat, 33% monounsaturated
