CANOLA OIL


Canola oil: The No. 1 hidden health 'danger' at the prepared food bar
Natural News
Step right up to your favorite food bar, whether at Whole Foods, Harris Teeter or Farm Fresh, and "get you some" potato salad, egg salad, pasta salad, chicken salad, tuna salad, or just make your own salad with lots of salad dressing, and you are most likely getting a few heaping tablespoons of rapeseed oil with each serving, better known as canola oil. Now, whether or not there really is any such thing as organic canola oil, well, the jury is still out. Regardless, canola oil is not good for you, and it all goes through a deodorizing processing stage that removes the "stink" of rapeseed, in case you didn't know.
