Beware of Canola Oil

by Jim Lynn – Editor EOO

Canola Oil is an Industrial Oil Not Fit For Human Consumption.

This article on Canola oil has been discredited by many sources.

However: We do however believe that eating any oils which are not well processed – that is by cold pressing in a highly controlled environment to maintain the integrity of the oil and avoid oxidations and destruction is highly important. It is also important to note that canola is grown with the assistance of many pesticides and other chemicals and that in itself is a questionable process.

Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill

We only recommend the use of oils such as virgin olive oil, and good quality coconut oil – which has been treated in an environmentally friendly manner without the heat treatment which destroys the health giving properties of all oils.

I placed this article after the soy article as they are two of the more common foods that many nutritionally oriented “experts” will attempt to convince of are healthier alternatives. It just seems best to stick with olive oil as a source of omega-9 oils that are high in mono-unsaturates. Olive oil has been around for thousands of years and this new genetically modified canola oil for a few years. Which do you think is best time tested in the laboratory of human physiology?
