Mainstream media has long promoted canola oil as heart healthy and is a good source of monosaturated fats similar to olive oil. Several studies also posit canola oil as a health-promoting component of the diet. [1] Many people claim canola oil is better than olive oil due to its high omega-3 fatty acid content which the latter does not have. Because of this, canola oil has received the reputation of being the premiere monosaturated fat that many supermarkets and groceries insist on using.

Granted these claims are true on a surface level, the health benefits offered by canola oil remain controversial and under scrutiny as there is much more to the canola story. Here are five reasons why you should ditch the canola oil immediately.

1. Canola Oil Is A Genetically Modified Product

A GMO version of canola was developed by agricultural company Monsanto. As of 2009, 90 percent of the crop is of GMO variety. [2] The oil comes from hybridized rapeseed plants and contains a highly toxic substance known as erucic acid which promotes heart failure. [3] Why would you use cooking oil that is high in harmful toxins?

2. Canola Oil Is Highly Inflammatory

The industrial oil also contains polyunsaturated fat which is highly unstable under heat, light, and pressure. [4] The polyunsaturated component oxidizes when exposed to these elements. According to various researches, canola oil thus has the potential to contribute to heart disease, stroke, and cancer. [5][6][7]

3. Canola Oil May Contain Hexane Residue, According To Berkeley Researchers

Canola oil is a vegetable oil that undergoes several processes including refining, bleaching, and degumming. According to researchers from the University of Berkeley, the chemical processes involved in the production of canola oil could contaminate it with hexane, which is a toxic byproduct of gasoline refining. [8]

4. Canola Oil Can Turn Rancid

Although it has a decent shelf stability, when canola oil gets old it has a bad smell and taste – which means it has gone rancid. Rancid oils have undergone chemical degradation – which might, in turn, spur negative effects on the body. Consumption of degraded oil could be a major contributor to inflammation – which causes arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, obsessive compulsive disorder, and schizophrenia. [9][10]

5. There Are Healthier Oils To Use Instead

What are the best oils to use as substitutes for canola oil? Coconut oil, olive oil, and red palm oil are the most likely candidates. These plant-based oils are all stable under high heat and offer more health benefits than canola oil. Avocado oil and organic grass-fed butter are also possible alternatives.

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:


Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
