Canola Oil is worse than Bad and worse than HORRIBLE!



Before you buy your next bottle of cooking oil...

I think it's important that as many people as possible

KNOW about the origins of this product. Then, if you choose to

buy it, at least you're doing so with your eyes open.


Dear Editors:

Recently I bought a cooking oil that's 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

AgriAlternatives, 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 an illuminate for color

pages in magazines. It is an industrial oil. It is nota 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 Cowdisease" 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 haven't 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'll

find it in an alarming number of processed foods. There's

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 is the cheapest oil and the Canadian

government subsidizes it to industries involved in food


I don't know what you'll be cooking with tonight, but

I'll be using olive oil and old-fashioned butter, from a genetically

unmodified cow.

Here is more information.......... 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

long-chain fatty acids (c22 to c28) which destroys the

myelin (protective sheath) of the nerves. Canola oil is a very

long chain fatty an 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


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 that 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 mo.

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 in

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. 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) Amal Kumar Maj. The Wall Street Journal June 7,

1995, pB6(W) pB6 (E) col 1 (11 col in).  Compiled by

Darleen Bradley.

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.
