Off Topic...CANOLA OIL

Dear Susan....

I'm very well this is a "FAT-FREE" site and have been a member for many years. I didn't start this "Canola Oil" topic and would NEVER use this stuff in the first place. Except for maybe alternative fuel for my car (like I mentioned as well in my post).

This is NOT an urban legend story as it was a an official "legitimate" paper I read this article...Just for the life of me couldn't remember where.

Sorry if I offended anyone for passing along this information.

Don't flame me on the issue anymore!

I'm afraid your posting has all the earmarks of an urban legend. I did some
cursory poking around in http://www.urbanlegends.com and did a search on
canola. I found a discussion thread debunking the negative information
circulating about rapeseed/canola oil.
Although this is a fatfree list, I believe that a question about oil is not
out of line. We try to cook without adding fat, but we recognize that the
body does need some fat. Canola oil is a monounsatured fat with some
polyunsatured fat and the essential fats, omega-3 and omega-6. While I
wouldn't go overboard and gorge on it, it is most certainly fit for human
