Canola oil is one of the most widely consumed vegetable oils in the world, yet surprisingly little is known about its effects on health. Now, a new study published online December 7 in the journal Scientific Reports by researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) associates the consumption of canola oil in the diet with worsened memory, worsened learning ability and weight gain in mice which model Alzheimer's disease. The study is the first to suggest that canola oil is more harmful than healthful for the brain.

First we are encourage to use canola oil, now we're finding out we shouldn't use it. Guess we'll go back to butter and lard, use in moderation.

In further research, I'm finding a lot of information on what to use for frying. I had no idea.

This article says to stay away from polyunsaturated vegetable Oils, e.g. Canola oil, Corn oil, Grapeseed oil, Soybean oil, Sunflower oil.

This article basically says the same thing but has some different information.

Oils low in polyunsaturated fat include coconut oil, butter, lard, ghee, tallow, extra virgin olive oil, .

Beef tallow now?

Can we go back to having good French fries fried in beef tallow now? Not only do the scientists want us dead we have to suffer with bad food until then.
