    canola oil

    Does anyone know anything about canola oil? My wife uses it to cook and one of her co-workers told her today that it wasnt safe. I looked it up and some articles say it has a poison in it that is the same as mustard gas, whatever that is. Today is the first Ive ever heard anything about this, Thanks for your help.

    Canola Oil is extracted from the Rapeseed plant.

    What articles show it is the same as mustard gas? That is hilarious.

    Those sources are terrible.

    Mustard Gas is chemical not even from the mustard family. There is no connection what so ever.

    Sure in it's early uses it was for industrial purposes. Heck it is oil, it was used as a lubricant.

    It wouldn't be my main source for fat in my diet. But some can be used.

    I have a bottle. I rarley use it, but I do once in awhile. I bought it at the health food store so I don't think it would be complete garbage. Actually, I only use it when I make almond pancakes.
