I have received this info. from a concerned relative awhile back. Since reading it and doing some research of my own on the net, we no longer buy products with Canola Oil/Rape seed in them. It's scary to think that these kinds of things are aloud in our foods. And Canola Oil is being promoted as the heathy oil. What do you think? I will post part of it now and the rest later in another post. Please remember I did not write this attachment. I am new here, and am sorry if this has already been a topic.

Ops, ok the attachment not there. Let me try again.

I have cut it down some. Hope this works.


Before you buy your next bottle of cooking oil...I think: it's important that as many 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 cooking oil that's new to our super markets, Canola Oil. I tried it because the label assured me that it was lowest in "bad fats". However, when I had used half ofthe bottle, I concluded that the label told me suprisingly little else and I started to wonder where does canal oil come from? Olive Oil comes from olives, Peanut oil comes from peanuts, sunflower comes from sunflowers; 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 Canola sites lauding this new "wonder" oil with all its low-fat health benefits. It takes a little longer to fmd 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 is 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 ofthe websites singing the praises of the new canola oil industry.)

» » Rapeseed oil is poisonous to living things and is an excellent insect repellent. I have been using it (in a 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 oil that is used as a lubricant. fuel, soap and synthetic rubber base and as an illuminate for color pages in magazines. It is 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 haven't seen any further reports of "Mad Cow" since Rape oil has 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 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 ingredient list on labels. Apparently peanut oil is being replaced with rape oil.

Can you just copy and paste the link, maybe that will work better for you? If not, perhaps contact a mod? Good luck, I'd like to see this research

Here is the next piece.

»»You'll find canola oil in an alarming number of processed foods. There's more, but to conclude: rape oil was the source ofthe chemical warfare agent mustard gas, which was banned after blistering the lungs and skins of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians during W. W.l. Recent French reports indicate that it was again in use during the Gulf War.

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

»» I don't know what you'll be cooking with tonight, but I'll be using olive oil and old fashion butter, from geneically unmodified cows.

»»Here is more information...Canola oil from the rapeseed, referred to as Canadian oil because Canada is mainly responsible for it being marketed ion 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 "Generally Recognized As Safe" (GRAS) List. 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 (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 ill effect, however it was in an unrefmed form (taken from FATS THAT HEAL AND FATES THAT KILL by Udo Erasmus). My cholesterol level was 150. After 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 fmd answers since most doctors will say that Canola oil is O.K.

And the last part. Please remember, this is info. that I received from a relative. I did not write this and nether did they.

> > 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 ifit could not be removed trom cloth easily. Our Father bred birds, always checking labels to insure there was no rapeseed in their food. He said, "The birds will eat it, but they do not live very long."

»»A mend, 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 anns and legs upon rising in the morning; extreme joint pain especially in hands, cloudy vision, constipation with stools black marbles, hearing loss; skin tears trom being bumped; lack of energy; hair loss and heart pains. It has been five years since she has worked there and she 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 a n 80 year old man. Two employees fed the waste product to baby calves and their hair fell out. After removing the med apple chips trom their diet their hair grew back in.

»»My daughter and her girls were telling jokes. Stephanie hit her mom's ann with the back of a butter knife in gesture, "Oh mom", not hard enough to hurt. My daughters ann split open like it was rotten. She called me to ask what could have caused it. I said, "I'll bet anything you are using Canola oiL" Sure enough, there was a big gallon jug in the pantry.

»» Rapeseed oil is 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 penetrating oil. We have found that it turns rancid very fast. Also it leaves a residual rancid odor on clothing.

»»Rapeseed 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 (E) colI (II 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.

»»Be sure to also read this informative report written by leading health expert Tom Valentine, Canola Oil Report.

after reading this, a few things began to pop into my mind, canada the next super power? perhaps the canadian govermnet created such a oil to destroy the lives of americans, by causing them to die slowly. i knew i had a reason to hate canada. just kidding. things wouldn't need to be low fat, if people would just get up and walk a mile, every once in a while. that's why i use butter and olive oil.

AceofBase~~good catch.
Sorry, earthmag~~even if Ace hadn't looked, your story sounds like the kind of stuff that is usually hoax-y.
Did you by any chance get this in an e-mail??

Sounds like the scaremongers are trying to confuse rapeseed oil with linseed oil.

I don't much care for canola oil anyway. I've got bottles of olive oil and peanut oil in the pantry, depending on what I'm cooking.

He found our secret guys!!

Anyways, ive been using/eating canola oil my whole life, and no problems here.

Its just that we extract the poison and use that in Canada, and to save money we send the canola oil without the poisons extraced to America. You cant stop us. WE will be the next world power.

Any oil put on an insect will usually kill it due to suffocation, soap will usually do the job too. Its just not cannola oil that does this. A good tip to use for lice is to take mayonaisse and rub it into a dry hair and scalp until its saturated, wrap in plastic bag, just hair of course and leave on an hour. My little neighbor who of course I had to come in contact with had them so when I found it out I used the mayo, as far as I know I never got them but if I did the mayo worked, I've been told it works by many who did have them. Anyway you may get called "Old Salad head", but its better and cheaper than using the poison they sell in the drug stores for it.

WELL first off, they grow it. (DUH!)

THEN they go out and get it

THEN they process it

THEN they give it to stores

THEN we buy it

THEN we cook it

THEN we can get sick
