I didn't say all canola was GMO. The article I quoted merely said 80% of western Canada canola is GMO.

The problem is that with the recent controversy regarding adulteration of olive oil with other oils (and even sometimes mineral oils) I find it increasingly difficult to discover which oils are pure and which are not.

I'll stick with cooking oils that have been used for hundreds or thousands of years. Don't worry, that will leave more canola for you!

It's important to remember that anyone can post anything they want on the Internet, with no requirement that it be truthful or backed up by facts So I always look for the identity of a site's creator(s), his/her/their credentials, whether it's an opinion or research-backed information, and whether they're trying to sell me something. Some of the links posted didn't pass these tests, so I'd be suspicious of their accuracy.

Unfortunate but true. That includes persons and organizations stating their opinion as facts, either with an agenda or perhaps just out of being misinformed, uneducated, stupid or crazy.

But I've decided to just leave canola alone for the present time, and try to find some California olive oil next time I'm out of EVOO.

Don't ever research where honey comes from. (Bee barf.)
