Just Say NO! Canola Oil.

You may have seen Canola Oil touted as the oil of choice in the past. However, canola is not healthy, and I want to tell you why.

  • Canola oil is manufactured at a high temperature
  • It is manufactured using toxic chemicals like hexane.
  • Approximately 93% of canola oil is genetically engineered ( yep! GMO!)
  • Canola oil is made from rapeseed ( it is actually just another name for low acid rapeseed oil), rapeseed oil is so toxic that many bugs and animals avoid eating it.

I personally won't eat canola oil, especially because it is genetically modified. Instead I opt for organic extra virgin olive oil & organic coconut oil. These oils are much better for your body, and you don't need a lot of oil to do your body good!

Please read the links below for more information on Canola oil.
I have included links, some of which I agree with & some I don't. See for yourself what you believe.

Be Happy Healthy & Strong,



  1. OMG ~ I just yelled at my mother about this over the weekend. She had canola oil in her pantry and I freaked out on her.
    NO!! Hopefully now she knows better!
