I too quit using canola oil several years back, and for the same reasons mentioned in article Michael has provided. I use sunflower and olive oils almost exclusively. Sunflower oil, though slightly more expensive than canola oil, is the most abundant food oil on the planet. Read teh label and you will find it is one of the healthiest oils, after avacado and olive oil. It has absolutely no flavor of its own and so is very neutral when cooking. It is a fairly high-temperature oil as well.
I use EVOO for its flavor. I use sunflower oil for cooking. And as far as the highly towted Omega-3's go, get it from flax seed, used in my homemade breads and baked goods, and fish.
Food nutrition requires research, and an understanding beyond what industry claims. Money is way too important to industry, including the nedical and pharmecutical companies. They have and will continue to endanger public health for a profit.
NOt everyone in the medical field is corrupt. There are a great many who are truly trying to help people. But I stiff follow Goodweed's principles of power. That is, and in order of importance:
1. Power protects Power
2. All sources of power will become corrupt as the corrupt are willing to do anything to attain those seats of power, while the good will be limited by their own honor.
3. Money and power do not corrupt. They allow those who are already corrupt a feeling of safety, even invulnerability, so that their true nature is expressed.
4. The only thing necessary for corruption to rule is for good people to do nothing.
The last is not my own observation, but is nonetheless true.
I will continue to ask questions, perform my own research, and make my own decisions. And even then, I expect to be duped by the cunning and corrupt heads of industry (of course not all industry is corrupt, thus the reason for research.
