Canola & Soy, Oh My!
Now then. Let us define Canola. Let’s start with it’s artificial name, shall we? “Can”-o-la. ‘MADE IN CANADA”. It is actually “Rape” seed oil. But who would buy “rape seed oil”? Definitely Not me.
Once Canada modified the rape seed to a lower erucic acid, insects still sensed this repellent and stayed away; but those inventors still saw their wallets growing fatter. They hired talented promoters, advertisers; following the traditional Rockefeller footsteps. Just as he hired Ivy Lee, the original “spin doctor” to (ever so sympathetically) misrepresent the truth in order to remedy his reputation, following the Ludlow massacre. We are such a gullible group! We believe “Everything” don’t we?
And, let’s not forget those “medical Experts”. The ones that can get an easy wallet padding, just by Putting their name on a product. Has anyone ever seen one of these “medical experts” actually taking/trying/ eating what-ever it is that they so vividly endorse? Didn’t think so!
Now that they had Canadians hooked on their deception, it was time to cross the border to a larger market ($), And dupe them as well. Easy Prey! Just have to pay the FDA $50,000,000. to get a ‘GRAS’ endorsement. Now “gras” doesn’t mean anything other then ‘IT IS GENERALLY RECOGNIZED AS SAFE”. Interpretation = Not Tested! “Assumption of safety!” “Nothing Thus Far Proving it Harmful”! Just as aspartame, equal, sweet’ n low, are all ‘GRAS’. They are safe products! They have no reason to
lie to us. (or do they $$$)
Years ago, when I was researching this new “healthy” food, the fact that I found distressful was that there had been No long term studies done, nor were there any human studies reported. Any testing was typically ended “abruptly”, and I couldn’t find one study that exceeded one year. That, to me, was very disturbing.
All I was able to find were studies on pigs and rats, and all the studies ended with a very
similar result. Lesions! On the heart, lungs, kidneys. In one study, I read, the lesions actually were disappearing from one area, while re-emerging on another. But the examiner couldn’t confirm that the elimination of “ such lesions “ was necessarily a positive finding.
Now, when it comes to soy, every woman should read this article. I remember going around and around with my doc over this topic. Hypo-thyroidism is one of the most difficult diagnosis to establish. Even the Endocrinologists never seem to agree. Your best bet. Take your temperature. If your waking temperature is below 97.6F, you’ve probably got thyroid issues. In any event, everyone should already be on iodine. If anyone is as old as I am, you may remember that iodine used to be in most baked goods, and if I recall correctly, somewhere aound the 70’s it was switched to a bromine derivative. Hence, when you look at the fact that most people are iodine deficient, then we add soy to the mix, which is a known goitrogenic (prevents iodine uptake by thyroid). Does anyone question the fact that “synthroid” use is growing by leaps and bounds. But it doesn’t end there. It would be wise to read the adverse effects of thyroid medications before ingesting them. Most cause the imminent death of whatever function the thyroid has left.
I found that by taking substantial doses of potassium iodide, tyrosine, gugulipids, (click here also),and good quality mineral supplements, and chemical free diet, my thyroid repaired itself. Funny how the body actually “can” repair itself. It may take months, sometimes a year or two. But isn’t it worth it?
Since I have pets, I have found some sites which are very informative for similar pet health issues. Many of the same issues affect both human as well as our animal friends. Thyroid, Arthritis, Cancers. Most of which can be avoided if we take what we learn about our own health and apply it to them. I no longer allow an animal of mine to have any vaccines; (I had to educate the vet on that subject, but he learned well), they eat real foods, and oddly enough, they do not possess any typical health issues as are common for their age or stage of life. As a result of over-lapping health issues, I find such sites as Shirley’s wellness cafe, well researched and very informative when it comes to my pets.
All in all, when a product is “over” emphasized as being “exceptionally beneficial” to
Us; it may be wise to follow the money trail, and see who may benefit from your use of
Such product. In this case; the chemical company makes/modifies the foods, (which are
Patented, of course), and the drug companies benefit from the illnesses that are created.
By the way, the drug companies ARE the chemical companies too!
