Just because Whole Foods uses it on their in-house prepared foods doesn’t mean it is actually a healthy oil. If you’ve been keeping up, you should know by now Whole Foods is a business cashing in on health trends without any regard for promoting and preserving what’s actually healthy.
Whole Foods was involved with promoting the current soon to be signed GMO “Dark Act, a measure dressed up as a compromise and hidden in another bill. This soon-to-be law overrides states rights to label, even retroactively.
GMO labeling law revoked in Vermont
After all the trouble Vermonters went through to create their GMO labeling law that only just went into effect this July, it will now be revoked by this federal law.
Instead, a very toothless labeling law that doesn’t even enforce its barcode system, which requires being read by smartphones only, and is so full of loopholes of what a GMO is that it’s likely to allow most genetically engineered foods to pass through.
Thanks for the non-GMO help Whole Foods. After all, the cheap Canola oil used in your in-house made foods is probably GMO.
Canola Oil: What It Is Really
First of all there is no canola seed or plant. Canola oil comes from rapeseed plant seeds, which despite its ugly name yields a high amount of oil. Originally, that oil wasn’t fit for human consumption. So it was used industrially, similar to motor oil’s machinery protection. What made it unfit for humans was erucic acid, which can lead to fatty deposits in the heart muscles of animals and humans.
But over time with hybrid breeding, versions of rapeseed plant seeds eliminated most of the erucic acid, making that toxin a non-issue today. So even if a crop of rapeseed (canola oil) is among the ten percent or so of “Canola” seeds that are not genetically modified to be Roundup Ready, the processing of this oil makes it a health hazard.
Most likely GMO
When you purchase foods made with Canola oils, which is a very cheap processed oil, it is very likely to be GMO because 80-90% of Canola comes from Roundup Ready rapeseed seeds to allow heavy glyphosate spraying.
So how come it’s called Canola Oil instead of rapeseed oil now? Well, Canada had a lot of rapeseed plants growing and wanted to encourage and support farmers growing it, so the renamed rapeseed oil Canola. Can stands for Canada and ola represents factors involving oil and its low erucic acid content. Canola oil means Canadian oil.
This oil is heavily processed with high heat and partially hydrogenated to create longer shelf life. Partially hydrogenated oils are trans-fats. How come the Canola labels say no trans-fats? The FDA allows processed food manufacturers to round down so that anything less than .5 grams per serving can be listed as zero grams.
FDA paid 50 million to obtain GRAS
Chemically deodorizing Canola oil with hexane and bleaching it as well as the high heating processes make Canola oil very unhealthy. Despite terrible results from animal testing resulting in all sorts of diseases from Canola oil, the Canadian government and Canola industry paid the FDA $50 milllion to obtain GRAS (generally regarded as safe) status.
If you see Canola oil as one of two or three possibilities on a food label, realize it’s probably Canola oil that’s used because it’s the cheapest. As you know, cheap is best when it comes to healthy food. The processed food industry, FDA, and Whole Foods says it’s so (sarcasm intended).
All highly processed plant food oils are very inflammatory. Cold pressed oils, such as olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, flax seed, and others that are not heated but cold pressed are the oils that should be used for good health.

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!

5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
