Very interesting see also other info from my list sent out earlier:
The following is a must read it should be one of the most beneficial
dietary change that one should make.
ON THE EFFECTS OF COCONUT OIL ON SERUM CHOLESTEROL LEVELS AND HDLs
This begins about 1/8th down the article.
Diabetes - Canola - Hydrogenated Oils -The Silent Killers
"In addition, a recent report from the EPA (1998) states that
classified canola oil as a biopesticide which ..."has low chronic
toxicities". Further, they say that no studies have been done
regarding toxic effects on Humans. The fact that they state that
it is a pesticide and that there have been no studies, plus the
fact it is a GM food, says to us it is something to stay away from!
It is like so many other things "they" say are good for
us like fluoride, canola oil and fluoride both accumulate and build
up in the Human systems."
How Do Trans Fatty Acids Cause Non-Insulin Diabetes?
The body makes protein from normal amino acids. Normal meaning
which the body is genetically used to. Properly structured protein
is needed for insulin to be effective in reducing sugar in the blood.
Protein is also derived from fats. By consuming abnormally changed
molecular essential fatty acids, abnormal proteins are produced
by the body. The abnormal proteins cannot properly synthesize the
insulin in its' metabolic state. The insulin eventually becomes
ineffective in reducing sugar in the blood stream. Hyperinsuliemia
is the end result. The body then starts producing more and more
insulin to control sugar while at the same time becoming more ineffective
in controlling blood sugar. This has been directly linked concerning
prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are made from essential fatty acids.
Research by researchers at the Division of Science,
Northeast Missouri State University have shown that the central
for pancreatic insulin production is mediated by prostaglandins.
It is not an autonomic response as once thought. Autonomic means
that which a normal
body responds to or makes. These findings have been confirmed by
research studies in Germany, the Massachusetts General Hospital,
by about half a dozen other researchers. Included in some of this
are in-depth studies of the roles of properly naturally occurring
structured essential fatty acids and how they inter-relate in making
not only the correct amount of insulin, but most importantly its'
effectiveness in the bloodstream in reducing blood sugar. Dr. Holman
and his colleagues at the Hormel Institute at the University of
Minnesota have shown that trans- fatty acids disrupt cellular function.
They affect many enzymes such as the delta-6 desaturase and consequently
interfere with the necessary conversions of both the omega-6 and
the omega-3 essential fatty acids to their elongated forms. They
consequently escalate the adverse effects of essential fatty acid
deficiency. Dr. Lenore Kohlmeier in Finland completed a study on
700 women, (300 of them had breast cancer). The study included the
analysis of the tissue fat cells of the women. Dr. Kohlmeier issued
this statement, "women who have higher stores of trans fatty
acids have a 1.4 times, ( approximately 55%) higher risk of developing
Additional work by several researchers have also shown that trans
acids produced in the hydrogenation of oils process are the culprits.
is why in the 1940's when non insulin type II diabetes started to

Subject: SARS and Canola?
As this severe acute respiratory syndrome has spread, I've noticed
certain countries it seems to hit like wildfire and other countries
it seems to poof!--disappear. It is especially deadly in China,
Hong Kong, and Canada but I was surprised that San Francisco and
other US cities with large Chinese communities haven't had many
I read before that China and Canada have the highest consumption
of rapeseed/canola oil, and have been trying to get current statistics.
It turns out that China's canola/rapeseed production is "roughly
midway between Beijing and Guangzhou" and Guangzhou is where
the SARS outbreak began. (from http://atn-riae.agr.ca/info/asia/e3282.htm
The hospital staff in Vietnam quickly got sick, there were a couple
of deaths, and then poof, no spread! The hospital was apparently
foreign and I read a comment about the staff being close-knit. Vietnam
and Thailand use a lot of coconut, and its high lauric acid is known
to destroy viruses and bacteria with lipid membranes. Canada's deaths
and infections due to SARS is the third highest, after China and
Hong Kong. As I said, it shares with those areas high canola oil
consumption. Maybe a connection.
Kind of interesting, isn't it?
