This short video shows you the conditions under which canola oil is manufactured and produced, including the deplorable number of chemicals and bleaches added to the product to achieve the clear liquid you see on your grocery store shelves. Just the way the oil is processed should be enough to encourage you to steer clear of consuming the product. But the risk associated with canola oil doesn’t stop with processing.

The canola plant was developed from rapeseed plants by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the University of Manitoba using plant breeding techniques. In fact, the Canola Council of Canada calls the development, "Canada's greatest agricultural success story."16 Rapeseed oil was originally used as a motor lubricant during World War II.17 Once the war ended, demand plummeted and Canada began an intensive program to make the product edible.

Before it could be ingested the erucic acid and glucosinolates had to be bred out of the plant, as they are dangerous to human health.18 By the late 1970s, both chemicals were reduced to lower levels, and the plant was officially accepted as consumable. In the 1980s, research focused on shelf stability of the oil, animal diets and gaining a wider consumer acceptance.

By 2012, nearly all low-erucic acid rapeseed plants were genetically engineered to increase yield. Today, what began as a motor lubricant is now one of Canada's most profitable crops.

The erucic acid is a long-chain fatty acid that is especially irritating to mucous membranes. Consuming canola oil has been associated with the development of fibrotic lesions on the heart, lung cancer, anemia, central nervous system degenerative disorders and prostate cancer.19

The featured study evaluated the effect of canola oil on brain function without identifying which characteristic of the product triggers the problems. However, as most canola oil is produced from GE seeds, using plants originally unfit for human consumption and taken through a process that injects multiple chemicals and bleaches, it isn't surprising the study was so conclusive.

Disgusting! Look at how many people are involved with the production of this poison! And nobody talks, they keep growing and processing all for the almighty dollar....

Heard bad things about it years ago. won't use it.

We use olive oil or sunflower based oils.

Study finds canola oil linked to Alzheimer's and weight gain

11 Dec, 2017 9:48am

Canola oil has been heavily marketed as a healthy choice because it is low in saturated fat.

But according to the Daily Mail, a new study suggests the trendy kitchen staple could worsen memory loss and learning ability in Alzheimer's patients.

It may also increase the build-up of plaques in the brain, a hallmark of the degenerative disease.

And despite its seemingly wholesome profile, researchers discovered it caused weight gain.

The findings suggest for the first time that long-term consumption of canola oil is not beneficial to brain health.
