It’s my hope that you’ll never use canola oil again! Why? Because of GMO’s (genetically modified organisms, see below) and the harmful side effects from the processing of this oil.
You know that olive oil comes from olives, and that sesame seed oil comes from sesame seeds. It would make sense that canola oil comes from canola seeds, right? Well, there’s actually no such thing.
It’s important to know the facts about Canola oil. A genetically modified product, canola oil is a Canadian invention that is backed by their government, cheap to manufacture, and many processed or packaged foods contain it.
Canola oil was first created in the early 1970s as a natural oil, but in 1995, Monsanto created a genetically modified version of canola oil. As of 2005, 87 percent of canola grown in the U.S. was genetically modified and by 2009, 90 percent of the Canadian crop was genetically engineered.
What is Canola Oil Made From?
A new study has proven that animals who were fed on GMO soy that had been treated with Monsanto’s herbicide ‘Roundup’ had kids who’s growth was significantly stunted.
Pregnant goats who were fed with genetically engineered soybeans had offspring who were shorter and who grow more slowly according to a new Italian study (Tudisco et al., 2015).
Publishing in the journal of Small Ruminant Research, the researchers were testing the results of supplementing the feed of female goats with Roundup Ready GE soybeans. (more…)

Phytoestrogens in soy-based formulas are known to carry greater risks than benefits for infants. Babies fed soy-based formula had 13,000 to 22,0000 times more isoflavones in their blood than babies fed milk-based formula.
New data published in PLoS One shows that consumption of soy formula may also be associated with a higher rate of seizures in children.
A groundbreaking new study published in the current issue of the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases reveals the potential “leukemogenic” properties of the Bt toxin biopesticides engineered into the vast majority of GMO food crops already within the US food supply.
Last September, the causal link between cancer and genetically modified food was confirmed in a French study, the first independent long-term animal feeding study not commissioned by the biotech corporations themselves. The disturbing details can be found here: New Study Finds GM Corn and Roundup Causes Cancer In Rats (more…)
Recent research has brought to light the danger that the herbicide glysophate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp, poses to the human reproductive system. From causing infertility to being present in the womb and now being found in breast milk, Monsanto has indeed infiltrated the reproductive system in a very dangerous way.

Glysophate Causing Infertility
In a study published in 2012, it was shown that RoundUp can affect and deform the formation of embryos of animals. Here’s an excerpt from the abstract:
The publication of a study in 2010, showing that a glyphosate herbicide formulation and glyphosate alone caused malformations in the embryos of Xenopus laevis and chickens through disruption of the retinoic acid signalling pathway, caused scientific and regulatory controversy. Debate centred on the effects of the production and consumption of genetically modified Roundup Ready® soy, which is engineered to tolerate applications of glyphosate herbicide[full study here].
A Russian study found that Hamsters fed GMO soy became infertile after two or three generations. (more…)
Great April Fools’ Day prank idea: Switch up your loved ones’ sugar with salt. When they spit out their coffee and comment on the saltiness you can insist that it’s really sugar and that there’s nothing wrong, giving the prank a twisted flair.
But you’d be right – because there’s friggin’ GMO sugar in salt! (more…)
