I was delighted to see an article published on the Natural News website detailing a study which led research scientists to issue warnings concerning the negative health effects related to the consumption of canola oil.
Many health care practitioners are aware of this, and the fact that canola oil should be considered as one of the commonly available oils which include other oils such as corn, cotton etc. which can cause negative health consequences.
I sometimes look when I am shopping at our local Whole Foods or Choices markets (a similar B.C. based company) for salad dressings which might be made with healthy ingredients, but alas they typically feature which is the top ingredient canola oil.
And the labeling can be deceptive to the average consumer with proud announcements of the product’s organic ingredients – plus the fact that the oil is not cold pressed which means it is produced under conditions of high heat and pressure which makes it unhealthy.
This deceptive advertising reminds me of other deceptive product descriptions such as can be seen in the paleo/keto products available on the market.
This is an issue we need to educate our patients about – and the general public about! Please feel free to pass this article along, or use it in your discussions/presentations to patients/the general public.
Following is the article from Natural News.
