Canola Oil (Toxicity & Origins)

Canola Oil is not a natural ocuring oil. Have you ever heard of a Canola Tree ? A Canola seed? No, that's because it does not exist. This oil is the commercial name of "Genetically Modified Rapeseed".

Canola oil was created in a Canadian university lab by Dr. Baldur Steffanson. Dr. Steffanson, after getting his newly created version of Rapeseed to meet FDA guidelines (with less toxic eurcic acid) he went on to work for Calgene (which later was acquired by Monsanto). For this reason, there is no such thing as “organic” Canola oil as the raw ingredient itself is genetically modified rapeseed

Among its effects are:

  • Canola depletes vitamin E.

  • Canola increases the rigidity of membranes, which can trigger degenerative diseases.

  • Because of canola’s high sulfur content, it goes rancid easily, which can exacerbate allergies and compound problems for people with bronchial or asthmatic issues.

  • Human studies reveal canola causes an increase in lung cancers.

  • Canola can shorten lifespan of animals and lower platelet count.

  • Daily canola consumption can raise your triglycerides over 40 percent.

  • Canola oil molds quickly and also inhibits enzyme function.

  • It opens the door for free radicals, undermining natural antioxidants, and can be linked to increased incidence of many diseases.

  • Canola leaves no foul taste when it’s spoiled, so it’s hard to tell if you’re eating rancid erucic acid

So just remember there is no such thing as Organic Canola Oil !
