Corn and canola are both fine to give to your animals or use yourself.

I prefer olive oil to any other for myself, but I'll use canola oil before I'll use vegetable oil.

Corn oil isn't the best choice for anyone with an inflammatory condition--arthritis, allergies, etc. Corn oil is high in Omega 6 fatty acids which feed into the inflammatory cycle and can help to keep the cycle going.

Canola oil is a better choice because it's lower in Omega 6's and higher in Omega 3's (the good fatty acids). Olive oil is an even better choice because it is very low in Omega 6's. Just FYI ;)

Yes, corn oil is fine to give to your horses. But if you have an arthritic or allergic choice canola oil or flaxseed oil is preferrable.

Bear in mind collusions between big business & government!

$50 million paid by canola businesses to Canadian government to state that canola oil is safe for consumption & other interesting facts: Canola Oil. This article summarizes the facts nicely. I don't get my info from the Canola Council, or other interested parties. Ok, folks, draw your own conclusions, in light of a very bad track record in the USA on propaganda/cover-ups re: health. Would you like a peanut butter sandwich made with Wonder Bread, Skippy, & margarine?

Northern, I didn't get my data from the Canola Coucil (whatever the heck that is). You can find actual scientific studies done if you look, not rely on those weirdo, freak websites you cite as 'proof'.

That Karinya website is all woo-woo, holistic, way out there crap. Is that seriously what you consider a reputable source of information?

I'll bet you think cancer was caused by the medical profession and they already have the cure, just don't want to give it to us, right? Never mind that doctors, their wives, and even their children die from cancer every day. It's all a conspiracy!!!! :roll:

Anyone with a smidgen of information and common sense concerning nutrition knows what they should and shouldn't eat, so I'm not getting what you're referring to as a 'cover up' by Wonder Bread, Skippy Peanut Butter and the margarine companies. FWIW, peanut butter in reasonable quantities is good for you.

Speedracer, surely you understand what I mean by the brand Skippy peanut butter? Also, what does FWIW mean? Thanks "in advance".

I love peanut butter sandwiches, but I don't put margarine on them. Yuck.. honey yes.. And I love Canola oil. I cook with it as well as olive oil. But I Fry my chicken in good ol mix of bacon grease and left over oil. LOL Now, that's healthy! Snort

Oh, and I don't feed any of my horses cooking oil. Messy, and totally yuck in summertime...

Apparently I don't, since I'm not getting your inference.

What's so awful about the Skippy brand? I don't buy it, anyway. When I want peanut butter, I buy Jif.

Oh, and the dog gets Walmart brand peanut butter because Jif is too expensive to give to animals.

Appyt, when my horses need weight I add beet pulp pellets to their feed. Much easier to deal with than oil!

Both Skippy & Jif are hydrogenated:
That this is deleterious to health has been known for many years & I just skimmed over a statement that hydrogenated peanut butter is soon to be banned in the US, & it's already been banned elsewhere. Margarine is another product touted for years as healthful, whereas in fact it is deleterious to health, and Wonderbread is a completely denatured product that does the opposite of build bodies 12 ways.
    06-04-2010, 04:18 PM
I'm quite well aware that many products have hydrogenated oils.

I thought perhaps you were referring to the peanut butter recall, which included Peter Pan, but neither Jif nor Skippy.

Everything in moderation. Even too much organic carrot juice can be detrimental to your health.

Did you know that the overconsumption of water can cause death? Weird, but totally true.

As I said, anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of nutrition has an idea what is or isn't good for their health. Acceptable risk, and all that.

Sometimes you have to eat what tastes good, and **** the torpedoes. Life isn't worth living if we don't have rewards now and again.

Northern, I know you're all into the holistic, herbal, organic, NH stuff and that's okay by me. Just don't try to shove them down my throat as gospel truths when I can do my own research and reach different conclusions.
