3. Canola Oil

Probably one of the most chemically altered foods in the USA today, canola oil comes from rapeseed and is put through a long process involving a multitude of chemicals to extract what we call canola oil.

GM rapeseed is just as stinky as the original rapeseed. In order to sell you this product, they need to add deodorizers to this oil. It goes through a process of bleaching, caustic refinement, degumming, and is then deodorized. By the time this process is done, almost all omega-3 fatty acids have been removed from this oil and replaced, instead, by those trans-fatty acids everyone knows they should avoid.

If the truth were told, canola oil is extremely delicate and unstable oil that goes rancid extremely quickly. The problem is, since this oil contains deodorizers, you will never know if you are eating rancid oil or not! Now that is a truly disgusting thought!

    We can’t even depend on our government to protect us from garbage that other nations will not allow in their country.
