Yes, just like eggs are good, no they are bad, they are good, bad. I just stick to Olive oil and butter.

Exactly!

Next thing they'll say is living is bad for you. :rolleyes:

I think ANYTHING can be bad for you if overdone; moderation is the key.

Canola oil is from the seeds of the canola plant which is crushed. It is among the healthiest of cooking oils. The problem is it is high in unsaturated fats. It high in healthy unsaturated fats.
If you have read any Internet reviews about canola oil made from the rapeseed plant, they say it has a toxic effect to humans. The rumors state ailments from respiratory diseases as well as blindness.This oil(rapeseed) which is sometimes confused with canola has high levels of erucic acid and can be toxic.
since canola comes from the canola plant the seeds, the erucic acid is way below the FDA's policy.
I wouldn't be afraid to use it.

canola plant is a made up word...because no one would buy an oil from the rape plant....

this is a sad thing, i think....it's not a good oil....soy is controversial....

so, i also stick with extra virgin olive oil.....sometimes i render my own chicken fat...and butter.

Thanks guys. I guess I don't need to avoid it, although I guess I should give my dog additional fish oil when feeding Merrick, Taste of the Wild, Wellness, etc., though, since they can't benefit as much from it as they do from fish oil, since it's plant-based.

i used to think it was a canola plant too....and for whatever reason, i looked it up....i had to laugh when i read they called it canola..i think it means canadian low acid oil....LOL

and actually, whilst i am not afraid to use it, i think there are better oils out there....

and saturated fats have gotten a pretty bad rap....

coffee bad. coffee good. chocolate bad. dark chocolate good. eggs bad. eggs good.

whew.

i do think there are better oils out there...and, if there is one place i try not to skimp...it's the food and the ingredients to make the food.

so we may well be switching to grape seed oil or sesame seed oil.. for salads...and i mostly use extra virgin olive oil for cooking anyway...

nothing ever tasted quite as good as when bacon fat was used. man, i haven't had bacon in so long, i barely remember what it tastes like...

walnut and hazlenut oils are very tasty and very healthy...

regardless of what some folks believe...fat is not the enemy. starches are....and, of course, too much of anything...

almond oil and walnut oil....num num -- and they are good for you.
