Our “What the HEALTH?!” Topic for August.
In 2013 I started hearing the rumblings myself…
“Oh my gosh you aren’t going to eat that are you? It has CANOLA OIL in it! That’s so bad for you. You know whole foods is banning it from all their stores.”
“Oh really?” I said.
Naturally, I got curious and started asking questions. Usually these “what the health?!” topics get started when a little bit of science gets blown out of proportion and misused. So I scoured through all of my past textbooks, food science and new research and still couldn’t make sense of it. Yes it is a high GMO crop, but what else is going on here? So back in 2013 I reached out to PCC and Whole Foods to see what they had to say.
and in a recent follow up with Nick at PCC he recently wrote this article specifically on Canola Oil: http://www.pccnaturalmarkets.com/sc/1404/questioning_canola.html
