1 CANOLA OIL – WHAT IS THE TRUTH? KANOLA OLIE –WAARHEID OF VERDIGSEL? Dr Carl Albrecht Hoof Navorsing Kankervereniging van Suid-Afrika (KANSA) Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA)

2 Verklaring Ek ontvang geen vergoeding van enige maatskappy om Kanola olie te ondersteun nie. Hierdie ondersteuning is die beleid van KANSA omdat Kanola-olie eienskappe bevat wat volgens ons kennis, die risiko vir kanker kan verlaag. Hierdie lesing word sonder enige vergoeding aangebied.

3 Wat is Kanola olie?

4 CANOLA OIL C A N – Canadian O – Oil L – Low A – Acid 14 million tons of oil per year

5 Origin of Canola Oil Rape seed Downey, Stefansson 1970’s Naturally bred Canola 1978 <2% erucic acid

6 Canola has an excellent mixture of plant fats

7 CANSA’s concern with plant oils

9 Summary of CANSA’s concern with oils 1.Total fat has increased 2.Saturated fat has increased 3.Trans fat has increased 4.Omega-6 has increased 5.Omega-3 has decreased 6.Ratio of omega-6/omega-3 has increased 7.Monosaturated has decreased Over the past 100 years there have been some pretty big changes in the fats consumed by humans and this has impacted on health in a big way – a negative way.

10 Aspects of oils and inflammation CHANGE 1.Total fat has increased 2.Saturated fat has increased 3.Trans fat has increased 4.Omega-6 has increased 5.Omega-3 has decreased 6.Ratio of omega-6/omega-3 has increased 7.Monosaturated has decreased INCREASE INFLAMMATION Yes SATURATED TRANS OMEGA-3

11 Saturated and trans fats cause “logjam” in membranes. Omega-3 fatty acids “break” the logjam.

12 Increased saturated and trans fats as well as a very high omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio contribute to systemic inflammation

13 Ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 2:171:1

14 Relevance of Inflammation Cancer Heart Disease Diabetes

15 Inflammation

16 CANSA’s SMART CHOICE emblem This logo indicates that the product is free of carcinogens and/or can act as an anti-carcinogen.

17 CANSA recognises Canola Oil as a smart choice B-Well Canola Oil Southern Oil Limited CANSA recognises the excellent lipid composition of Canola oil, especially the low saturated fat, low omega-6 to omega-3 ratio (2:1), high omega-3 concentration 11-12%, high oleic acid concentration. No trans fats.

18 This is the good story And now for the BAD STORY

19 Attack on Canola Oil –out of the blue(?)

20 Canola oil – Good or Bad? On the 12 th July 2000 I received an condemning Canola oil. This made the following very serious allegations about Canola oil: Canola comes from rapeseed which is so poisonous that even insects wont eat it. Canola oil agglutinates red blood cells Rape oil causes blindness

21 Attack on Canola Oil cont. Canola oil causes emphysema, anemia, constipation, irritability and blindness in animals Rape oil fed to animals in England caused Mad Cow Disease Rape oil is the source of chemical warfare agent mustard gas Canola oil contains cyanide

22 Attack on canola Oil cont. Canola glycosides depress the immune system Alcohol in canola oil shuts down the immune system Academia and Government continue to bamboozle the public with stories of “safe” science and cheap food through the use of poisons. Used in Gulf War (Athalie Russell)

23 What are we to make of this? Mustard gas????????? Synthesis Bottle containing 'HD' (distilled sulphur mustard agent) used for testing/training purposes Sulfur mustard is the organic Compound described with the formula (ClCH 2 CH 2 ) 2 S. In the Depretz method, mustard gas is synthesized by treating sulfurdichloride with ethylene: SCl C 2 H 4 → (ClCH 2 CH 2 ) 2 S

24 Link between Canola oil and mustard gas CANOLA OIL Canola Rape Brassica sp. Mustard family MUSTARD GAS Ethylene Sulfur chloride Bis(2-chloroethyl) sulfide Mustard gas

25 What is this? THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS INDUSTRIAL SABOTAGE

26 Canola oil – Good or Bad? On the 12 th July 2000 I received an condemning Canola oil. This made the following very serious allegations about Canola oil: Canola comes from rapeseed which is so poisonous that even insects wont eat it. Canola oil agglutinates red blood cells Rape oil causes blindness

27 Attack on Canola Oil cont. No.1 Canola oil causes emphysema, anemia, constipation, irritability and blindness in animals Rape oil fed to animals in England caused Mad Cow Disease Rape oil is the source of chemical warfare agent mustard gas Canola oil contains cyanide

28 Attack on canola Oil cont.No.2 Canola glycosides depress the immune system Alcohol in canola oil shuts down the immune system Academia and Government continue to bamboozle the public with stories of “safe” science and cheap food through the use of poisons. Used in Gulf War (Athalie Russell)

29 Athalie Russell apologises Dear Dr Albrecht I am appalled that the canola letter, which I wrote with such stupid innocence, is doing the rounds again TEN YEARS LATER. And with a fake job description and contact details for me! Who would do this? Why??? I am trying to get myself off Google because people are finding me there and I am being endlessly harassed (as I am sure you are). I just want you to know that I have no connection with this fraud, am dismayed by it, and very much regret that someone malicious has resurrected it. My sincere apologies. Athalie

30 Conclusion 1 Canola oil is an excellent and healthy product that the public can use with confidence. CANSA endorses Canola oil because it has a good omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 2 to 1 and a significant concentration (11-12%) of omega-3 fatty acid which is known to counteract inflammation which is now known to be associated with carcinogenesis (cancer forming process).

31 Conclusion 2 The attack(s) on Canola oil since 2000 are devoid of any facts and border on insanity especially where it is claimed that deadly Mustard gas was made from Canola oil which also causes Mad Cow disease. There is absolutely no scientific evidence anywhere that Canola oil is in any way poisonous. It is not unreasonable to assume that these attacks are a form of industrial sabotage and the public is urged to delete these s and not perpetuate them by sending them further. This nonsense must now come to and end.

32 What to do with anti-Canola s
