  • Canola, it's in everything.  read labels




    Canola Oil_ (http://nesaranews.blogspot.com/2012/10/canola-oil.html)

    Canola oil is a health hazard to use as a cooking  oil or salad oil. It is
    not the healthy oil we thought it was. It is not fit  for human consumption,
    do not eat canola oil, it can hurt you. Polyunsaturated, organic, or not, this is a bad oil.


    Canola  Oil

    Compiled by Darleen Bradley

    Recently I bought a cooking oil that is  new to our supermarkets, Canola
    Oil. I tried it because the label  assured me it was lowest
    in 'bad' fats. However, when I had used half  the bottle, I concluded that
    the label told me surprisingly little else  and I started to

    wonder: where does canola oil come from?


    Olive oil comes  from olives, peanut oil from peanuts, sunflower oil from
    sunflowers; but  what is a canola? There was nothing on the label to
    enlighten me which I  thought odd. So, I did some investigating on the Internet.
    There are  plenty of official Canola sites lauding this new 'wonder' oil with
    all  its low-fat health benefits. It takes a little longer to find sites that
    tell the less palatable details.

    Here are just a few  facts everyone should know before buying anything
    containing canola.  Canola is not the name of a natural plant but a made-up
    word, from the  words ' Canada ' and 'oil'. Canola is a genetically engineered
    plant  developed in Canada from the Rapeseed Plant, which is part of the
    mustard family of plants.

    According to  Agri Alternatives, The Online Innovation, and Technology
    Magazine for Farmers, 'By nature, these rapeseed oils, which have long  been
    used to produce oils for industrial purposes, are... toxic to  humans and
    other animals'. (This, by the way, is one of the websites  singing the praises
    of the new canola industry.)

    Rapeseed oil is poisonous to living things and is an excellent insect
    repellent. I have been using it (in very diluted form, as per  instructions) to
    kill the aphids on my roses for the last two years. It  works very well; it
    suffocates them. Ask for it at your nursery. Rape is  an oil that is used as
    a lubricant, fuel, soap and synthetic rubber base  and as a illuminate for
    color pages in magazines.

    It is an  industrial oil. It is not a food. Rape oil, it seems, causes
    emphysema,  respiratory distress, anemia, constipation, irritability, and
    blindness  in animals and humans.  Rape oil was widely used in animal feeds in
    England and Europe between  1986 and 1991, when it was thrown out. Remember the
    'Mad Cow disease'  scare, when millions of cattle in the UK were
    slaughtered in case of  infecting humans? Cattle were being fed on a mixture
    containing material  from dead sheep, and sheep suffer from a disease called
    'scrapie'.
    It was thought this was  how 'Mad Cow' began and started to infiltrate the
    human chain. What is interesting is that  when rape oil was removed from
    animal feed, 'scrapie'  disappeared. We  also have not seen any further reports
    of 'Mad Cow' since rape oil was  removed from the feed. Perhaps not
    scientifically proven, but  interesting all the same. US and Canadian farmers grow
    genetically  engineered rapeseed and manufacturers use its oil (canola) in
    thousands  of processed foods, with the blessings of Canadian and US
    government  watchdog agencies. The canola supporting websites say that canola is
    safe to use. They admit it was developed from the rapeseed, but insist  that
    through genetic engineering it is no longer rapeseed, but 'canola'  instead.
    Except canola means 'Canadian oil'; and the  plant is still a rape plant,
    albeit genetically modified. The new name  provides perfect cover for
    commercial interests wanting to make  millions. Look at the ingredients list on
    labels. Apparently peanut oil  is being replaced with rape oil. You will find
    it in an alarming number  of processed foods. There is more, but to conclude:
    rape oil was the  source of the chemical warfare agent mustard gas, which
    was banned after  blistering the lungs and skins of hundred of thousands of
    soldiers and civilians during W.W.I. Recent French reports indicate that  it
    was again in use during the Gulf War.

    Check products  for ingredients. If the label says, 'may contain the
    following' and  lists canola oil, you know it contains canola oil because it is
    the  cheapest oil and the Canadian government subsidizes it to industries
    involved in food processing.

    I do not know what you will be  cooking with tonight, but I will be using
    olive oil.

    Canola oil from the  rape seed, referred to as the Canadian oil because
    Canada is mainly  responsible for it being marketed in the USA . The Canadian
    government  and industry paid our Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
    $50  million dollars to have canola oil placed on the (GRAS) List 'Generally
    Recognized As Safe'. Thus a new industry was created. Laws were enacted
    affecting international trade, commerce, and traditional diets. Studies  with
    lab animals were disastrous. Rats developed fatty degeneration of  heart,
    kidney, adrenals, and thyroid gland. When canola oil was  withdrawn from
    their diets, the deposits dissolved but scar tissue  remained on all vital
    organs. No studies on humans were made before  money was spent to promote Canola
    oil in the USA.

    Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a rare fatal degenerative  disease caused by
    a build up of long-chain fatty acids (c22  to c28) which destroys the myelin
    (protective sheath) of the nerves.  Canola oil is a very long chain fatty
    acid oil (c22). Those who will  defend canola oil say that the Chinese and
    Indians have used it for  centuries with no effect, however it was in an
    unrefined form.(*) (*  taken from FATS THAT HEAL AND FATS THAT KILL by Udo
    Erasmus.)

    My cholesterol level was 150. After a year  using Canola oil I tested 260.
    I switched back to pure olive oil and it  has taken 5 years to get it down
    to 160. Thus began this project to find  answers since most Doctors will say t
    hat Canola oil is O.K..

    My sister spilled Canola oil on a piece of fabric, after 5  pre-treatings
    and harsh washings, the oil spot still  showed. She stopped using Canola oil,
    wondering what it did to our  insides if it could not be removed from cloth
    easily. Our Father bred  birds, always checking labels to insure there was
    no rape seed in their  food. He said, 'The birds will eat it, but they do
    not live very long.'  A friend, who worked for only 9 months as a quality
    control taster at an  apple-chip factory where Canola oil was used exclusively
    for frying,  developed numerous health problems. These included loose teeth &
    gum  disease; numb hands and feet; swollen arms and legs upon rising in the
    morning; extreme joint pain especially n hands, cloudy vision,
    constipation with stools like black marbles, hearing loss; skin tears  from being
    bumped; lack of energy; hair loss and heart pains. It has  been five years since
    she has worked there and still has some joint  pain, gum disease, and
    numbness.

    A fellow worker, about  30 years old, who ate very little product, had a
    routine check up and  found that his blood vessels were like those of an 80
    year old man. Two  employees fed the waste product to baby calves and their
    hair fell out.  After removing the fried apple chips from the diet their hair
    grew back  in. My daughter and her girls were telling jokes. Stephanie hit
    her  mom's arm with the back of a butter knife in a gesture, 'Oh mom', not
    hard enough to hurt. My daughters arm split open like it was rotten. She
    called me to ask what could have caused it. I said, 'I'll bet anything  that
    you are using Canola oil'. Sure enough, there was a big gallon jug  in the
    pantry.

    Rape seed oil is a penetrating oil, to be used  in light industry, not for
    human consumption. It contains a toxic  substance, (from encyclopedia). Even
    after the processing to reduce the  erucic acid content, it is still a
    penetrating oil. We have  found that it turns rancid very fast. Also it leaves a
    residual rancid  odor on clothing.

    Rape seed oil used for stir-frying in  China found to emit cancer causing
    chemicals. (Rapeseed oil smoke causes  lung cancer) A K Maj.  The Wall Street
    Journal June 7, 1995 pB6 (W)  pB6 (E) col 1(11 col in).

    Canola  oil is a health hazard to use as a cooking oil or salad oil. It is
    not  the healthy oil we thought it was. It is not fit for human consumption,
    do not eat canola oil, it can hurt you. Polyunsaturated or not, this is  a
    bad  oil.

  • The Canola is indeed "Canadian Oil" but "Canola" is "Canadian Oil low acid".

    The acid in rapeseed that causes coronary lesions is 'bred out' of the rapeseed we consume.

    They're not the same plant,  and it's not "genetic modification,"  it's  cross breeding  and selective breeding, not synthetic genes or animal or bacteria gene insertion into a plant genome whose consequences are hardly known. We crossbreed and selectively breed plants all the time and have done so for thousands of years.  I suppose it is genetic "modification" but not of the sort we are usually worried about.

    And yes, rape is in the mustard family (this is a weird link suggested to mustard gas), but so is radish. And of course  *mustard* (which is delicious IMO).

  • It is an interesting article.  I use olive oil because I like to know where things come from.  My grandgfather's whole family lived past 100 and they were farmers who ate butter and eggs every day, but never margarine.  Lots of things we eat are neurotoxins in larger doses, as the previous poster mentioned, things  mustard and horseradish.  

    I have noticed that certain microwave popcorn makes me choke and cough when I eat it, so I buy other brands--I wonder if canola is in there.
    I am not alone, for the father is with me.

  • I don't think rape was created by God to be a food oil, and I think there are probably some problems with Canola oil that we aren't fully aware of.

    That being said it's not bad in Trader Joe's hummus.

    If you have a blender you can make your own hummus easily.  Just use sunflower or sesame seed oil, tahini, garbonzo beans, lemon juice and garlic, and maybe a dash of cayenne or soy sauce.

    (but who knew canola is so nasty?!?)

    Make sure you buy the expensive stuff. I read a book about olive oil called Extra Virginity, and it says most of the cheaper olive oils are adulterated, even most extra virgins sold on supermarket shelves.

    Just a liitle bit of poison! Not a good idea if you are trying to achieve health. Why not make your own? It really is very simple. This recipe contains olive oil, a healthy alternative.
