    Canola oil. Good, bad? GM not GM.


    Okay, I'm sure you guys have heard about the controversy about canola oil and this has probably been discussed before. Some say it's bad and Canada paid the FDA to approve it and some say it's fine and is actually healthy for you. Also there is talk of Genetically modified canola oil vs. non-GM. Alot of the stuff my grandmom brings home from work(Whole Foods) is made with canola oil. I read Whole Foods doesn't use genetically modified canola oil, but I don't know how true this is. What is everyones take on this oil?

    at least from what ive read,all that oil is already spoiled and they add the coloring to make it look nice and appetizing. it tastes horrible and i would never buy it. whole foods might not be all 100% organic health food, a bunch of stuff sneaks in under the radar. why bother with canola and all that crap if you can get actual health benefits from olive and coconut? thats my take on it

    I dont know the specifics of how its made, but I do know that the monounsaturated to polyunsaturated fat ratio is very close to olive oil and it is much cheaper. I use it for this reason.

    If you didnt know mono has been shown to raise testosterone and poly has been shown to decrease it. Also poly will decrease good cholesterol at higher levels.

    it used to be made from RAPESEED which contains eruric acid. this has a toxicity in humans.

    Canola oil now is made from canola plants and have less then 1.5 % of the eruric acid which is deemed safe by the FDA who set the limit at 2%

    with that said there can be a toxicity, and it does taste like ****. There are much better fat sources.

    the seeds that make the plants is the GM part of it, they alter them so that they can spray insectisides on them but the way they do it is even worse than the poisons themselves.

    ya man its no joke. the messed up thing about it is theirs no law saying they have to label any food thats GM so you have no idea what all your eating thats been messed with. i live in tx and i know a few farmers and its FU##ED up the stories they will tell me about cross polination which they have no control over and still getting sued for it. im telling you if these companies get their way (and i dont see anyone trying to stop them) all the food we eat will be owned by one company and will be GM
