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 When canola oil was withdrawn from their diets, the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
- Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a rare
fatal degenerative disease caused by in 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 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.*
- 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

- 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 including
loose teeth; gum disease, gum and nail beds turned gray; numb hands and
feet with cramps, 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 yrs. old who ate very little product, had a routine
check up and found that his blood vessels were like those of an 80 year

grew back in.

jokes. Stephany 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

- 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.
