    Canola apparently isn't sold very widely in the UK. I don't know if this is just because the US market was thought to be too sensitive to buy a product with "rape" in the name, if it's made using a different process, or if the rape plants used in the US and Canada are different due to selective breeding or genetic modification.

    true, canola was a US/Canadian brand of oil made from rapeseed and its now a generic term for it there; canola was never on sale in the UK so the name means nothing to us but they are the same thing -oil produced from rapeseed in an identical manner.
    When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
    27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

    From what I understand almost all the canola oil in the US and Canada is GM. Perhaps that's why it's not commonly used in the UK

    I always thought that it was because CAN-OLA is short for 'Canadian Oil'.

    But actually it's because the Canola plant is a rapeseed species bred in Canada.

Humans are omnivores, people! Why do some people deliberately not see this? If you want to compare our digestion to any wild animals it ought to be wild bears and hogs - and - SHOCKER - our GI tracts are quite similar. *face palm*

    (This same documentary says that Gerson's daughter, Charlotte, doesn't look her 80 years . . . and I'm thinking - "You know we can actually see her right? She looks every bit a spry 80 year old. She doesn't look younger than she is at all - she looks like a pretty healthy 80 year old, no more no less")
    I had a dream last night that I got into an argument with a vegetarian over this exact same issue.

    People seem to also forget that humans cook their food, to get more nutrients out of them in a quicker timeframe. Cooking food also makes it more digestible, which explains both the shorter GI tract (don't need to digest as long to get nutrients absorbed) and the teeth (cooked food is easier to chew). There was a great popular anthropology book about it recently called Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human.

    Of course, some people who argue that humans are herbivores also argue that we should be eating raw vegan diets, which often lead women to be unable to menstruate or conceive. I'm going to say that something that decrease fertility is probably not healthy.

    OK, that makes sense. I was just confused because most of the literature I've read defined rapeseed oil as inedible.

    Isn't unintentionally removing oneself from the breeding pool one qualification for for a Darwin Award?

    Canola is indeed GMO. It's Monsanto's cash cow.

    I got told that it is unhealthy that I don't eat during my 8 hour shift at work. I guess it would have been better that I had McDonalds like everyone else.

    My friend told me this the other day:

    "Granola bars are just flakes of dead hippie skin."

    Pure epicness.
