Subject: Canola oil

There are actually no negative health effects linked to canola oil
that I can find.

There was, however, an *urban legend* which claimed that canola oil
is related to mustard gas, and some other things along those lines.
That urban legend has been thoroughly debunked, though. You can read
about it on "urban legend debunking" sites like, etc.
... or, better yet, do a Web search through a medical search engine
to see for yourself that there are no studies linking canola use to
health problems.

It's not one of my favourite oils in the whole world, but I haven't
seen any actual evidence that it is harmful, either .. and I've been
looking. Please let me know if you find something that I've missed.
