Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that Snopes is not right. I have never (to my knowledge) been mislead by that site and I do use it all the time, but I just find it humorous that people use an online source to prove that online sources are not valid
The difference is the sources cited by Snopes. It's not perfect, but it's a good starting place.

Oh don't get me wrong, I agree with you. Snopes is invaluable for finding out the truth behind a lot of things. I just see an irony in it that I find very funny.

I've been using canola oil for over two years now, because I found it to be almost tasteless and therefore perfect for making strongly flavoured Indian pickles. (Mustard oil, which would probably be the oil of choice, is not available here).
Sometimes I add a little Chinese peanut oil - mostly I use it alone.

You got it Michael. I have lived long enough to have heard every food scare in the books. Almost all you could have spread on the garden.

I don't know how healthy or unhealthy canola oil is, but I simply do not like it. Most of all I do not like the way it smells when used for frying. Well I actually can't stand the smell, brrrrrrrrrrr

You are what you eat.
