The best vegetable oil to destroy your health

Oil Warning(NaturalHealth365) What do you think is the best vegetable oil to shorten your life span? Ask most health experts and they’ll tell you to avoid canola oil. And, it’s not just hurting human beings, since canola oil in animal feed has been shown to shorten their life as well.

Canola oil is associated with fibrotic lesions of the heart. Rats developed fatty degeneration of heart, kidney, adrenals and thyroid gland. When the canola oil was withdrawn from their diets the deposits dissolved, but scar tissue remained on all vital organs.

Canola oil wins the “frankenfood” of the year award

Canola oil (formerly called “rapeseed” oil) has long been used as an insect repellent, and is a known toxic to many animals. Cows that are fed large amounts of canola oil aren’t able to metabolize it and become very ill. Canola oil depletes vitamin E levels in pigs and is lethal to insects including pollination insects.

Canola oil is low erucic acid rapeseed oil, which is fully refined, bleached and deodorized to make it edible. Chemically low erucic acid rapeseed oil is a mixture of triglycerides composed of both saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. And, let’s not forget, consuming this partially-hydrogenated oil has been linked to heart muscle damage.

Should we really be eating industrial waste products?

Initially, the rapeseed plant was used to create oil for lubrication especially for machinery in World War 2. After the war, farmers were left with a surplus. Rapeseed oil contains high levels of erucic acid – so scientists started to cross-breed and selective breed for the purpose of creating (low) erucic acid rapeseed – known as LEAR.

For “branding” purposes – the name was changed to canola oil.

The term canola oil wasn’t really used much until the 1990’s, when the marketers wanted to position the product for wide scale use. For this it needed to be granted GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status to be allowed into the food processing industry.

So, without research and testing – which is normally required for GRAS status – canola oil was approved by the USDA in 1995. In 1998, scientist genetically engineered the latest strain to be disease and drought resistant. Not to mention, what genetically engineered oil does to our DNA.

Canola oil is created by a complicated procedure, which uses a combination of extreme heat and chemical solvents to separate the oil stored within the plant. Often, the solvent used is hexane. Traces of hexane, a chemical made from crude oil, are left in canola oil and can cause various symptoms such as headaches and nausea.

Chemical toxicity (poisoning) starts at a very young age

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved canola oil for infant formulas. This fat probably wouldn’t make the list of preferred fats, but with approval from the FDA, formula makers now have another oil to work with and push onto undereducated American consumers.

Previously, the FDA has banned the use of canola oil in baby formula due to possible negative side effects. Science has already suggested that erucic acid, in canola oil, can be harmful to infants – due to a baby’s inability to breakdown this toxic oil.

It’s like a giant de-population experiment on human beings. If we don’t remove this sickening oil from the marketplace, along with many other toxic ingredients like, aspartame – we’ll see more and more babies developing all kinds of horrific diseases. This can truly be called child abuse and it has to stop.

    So how do you propose to stop it? I see no action alert here.

  • Dr. April Modesti

    I thought that if you purchase organic canola oil that it is free of toxins and cannot be genetically modified. Is that not so?

  • Nancy Russell

    I HAVE BOUGHT MAYO MADE WITH ORGANIC CANOLA OIL. IS THIS SAFE?

  • Carol Crow

    “Like” a giant depopulation experiment on human beings? It IS a depopulation ploy being perpetrated on human beings. About 90% decrease I’ve seen it said. And no experiment. We’d better wake up before it’s 100% depopulation….

    I’d like a printer-friendly or PDF option for your articles. Thanks.

  • Yumi Shibasaki

    So this article says don’t eat canola oil, but then what is a better oil for us???

  • Blanche

    Canola oil can’t be compared to organic extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, walnut, almond, grape seed or even sesame oil. The reason it appears in just about all processed foods is because its cheaper. not healthier

    The organic canola oil is just an improvement on the genetically modified and over processed commercial oil. Canola oil is being used as a substitute for the truly heart healthy oils. Canola oil even organic contains trans-fat due to its processing. It has been liken to margarine another disastrous recommendation.

    The “action” required is Not to buy any product which contains this poison. The only way to send a message is through your pocketbook.

    There are many alternatives to this poison. You just need to do a little work to find them.

  • Michael T. Murray, N.D.

    Blanche, while your intentions are good, this article contains many factual inaccuracies. The production of a non-erucic acid producing rapeseed was achieved by conventional crop breeding – just like all of our modern fruits and vegetables – not through genetic modification. Organic, non-GMO canola oil is certainly a healthful oil. Yes, there is GMO produced canola oil and it should be avoided. Lumping canola in with the dangers of rapeseed oil is simply illogical. Sincerely, Mike

    Dear Natural Healing 365
    Thanks for the help I’ve wanted for so long a time!
    I would like to ask if Comelina oil would be profitable to me for oil uses such as salid dressing, etc.
    Also I have possible an advantage more than most would have at thier options. We have Sanaan dairy goats with which to make keifer, cheese, and of cource milk. Also our chickens are free run and gardens produce veggies. Is this an advantage? Do you have any counsel on use of these natural products?

  • Blamche

    The article talks about the commercial variety that is thrust upon a public which doesn’t have enough information to limit their consumption of processed food containing it. When put in infant formula or into snack food it most likely will not be organic.

    To further my research after reading the hype about organic canola oil, I looked at agricultural and farming publications, and found plenty of reasons to be distressed about the way this product is marketed.

    Omega Nutrition, one of the major producers of organic, cold pressed oils for the health food store market published a press release in 1998, saying in part that if you are cooking with canola oil of any quality, you might as well be using margarine. At that time it may have been true that there was more trans fatty acids in it, but it is not a great cooking oil by any means.
