What statistics?
The only ones that could prove you right would be utterly unethical to collect since you would have to force people to change their diets.
So, go on- show me the statistics.


"What does Dr Oz say about the oil"
He includes it in recipes on his "longevity shopping list"
http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/dr-ozs-longevity-grocery-list?page=4#copy

"what does Dr Blaylock say about the oil? " I don't know but he sure talks a lot of cobblers about other things.
For example, according to WIKI, "He also states that the widely used artificial sweetener aspartame is toxic[14][15] and may be the cause of multiple sclerosis."
which is obvious nonsense. Multiple sclerosis was around before aspartame.
Did it travel back in time to cause those cases?

And glutamate is (as I probably pointed out before) still a normal component of plenty of foods.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glutamic_acid_(flavor)#Concentration_in_foods
Like water (and everything else), it is bad for you if you ingest too much of it.

"How about studies on Aspartame that supposedly its cancerous? "
Still drinking diet cola. Still not dead.

The answer to "WTF" is probably something along the lines that people who want to sell books often realise that telling scary stories sells better- even if they have to make the stories up.

Dr. Oz recommends not to fry in high temperatures...you missed that part... obviously if you cant fry in high temperature its because it causes health problems.  The only reason you approve of Canola Oil GMO oil its because you are behind all these GMO ingredients that are destroying our health. GMO are causing numerous health issues in humanity.  Tell me no, really?

Take an Apple that sells in the supermarket and grow your own apple...which lasts more?  ...the commercially grown apple...why...? because its full of genetically modified ingredients that will prevent it from rottening.  Profit makes money.  However, these preservative have cause many cancerous cells in peoples body to cause death.

Are you posting from a mobile phone or something?
You seem to be a bit disjointed and lacking in punctuation.
Anyway to answer the last question we had apple trees at home when I was a kid. We thought we were doing badly if we didn't still have apples in the store when the new blossom came out on the trees. Just cool, dark, dry storage.
So home grown-apples last a few months if you look after them. I don't know about the store bought ones.

What point were you trying to make?

You won nothing. This is supposed to be a forum for discussion, you appear to have another agenda. But principally, I just want to say that you're really uneducated, your English is close to illiterate and you clearly can't follow an argument. The bored chemist was trying to be polite and informative while contradicting your clearly aberated views and your 'facts' gathered from a collecction of stupid websites which have no means of correction were nonsense, yet you claim Wikipedia is not to be trusted since anyone can write anything on it - just try, try editing something on Wikipedia that's clearly wrong, shouldn't be too difficult since everything you write is, and see how long it stays there. The secret is there are a lot of people with a lot of specialist, academic, educated knowledge who contribute to Wikipedia, and they don't allow falsehoods, so, far from being unreliable, it is totally reliable. You might learn a lot by looking there for answers to your stupid obsessions. In the academic world it's called peer review, but since you obviously never made it past junior school you might not have heard about that.
You are obviously out of your depth on this site, where much more intelligent people with far more advanced educational achievements to you post sensibly. Your posts read more like some retard American boho with a grudge against 'edicated folks' rambling on about the 'governmints out to poison us all' nonsense. Perhaps you should just stick with the conspiracy theorist sites where the stupids hang out and leave sites like this to those with understanding. Even when anyone could see you were outclassed, you couldn't see it, and continued to respond, digging a yet deeper hole for yourself. Embarrassing or what?

'genetically modified ingredients that will prevent it from rottening' [sic]

Cold stores and carbon dioxide are the secret to fruit ripening. With commercial apples though you should clean the outside thoroughly, as they are sprayed with fungicides. That's why people polish an apple on thier clothing before sinking teeth into same - iconic image?

Don't think Monsanto have GM'd any apple varieties yet. Not that I don't think they would if they thought they could make money from it, but mostly GM crops are seed crops like wheat which use heavy doses of insecticides, the seeds being made able to withstand the poisons which 'weeds' cannot. No benefit except to the GM company of course, though they try to have us believe that it's to increase yield and 'feed he world'. Now THAT'S a conspiracy quite a few have bought into, but Canola is just a marketing name for rapeseed oil, expertly bred rapeseed as bored chemist has told you [LISTEN!] but not genetically engineered. Who would buy GM apples, and why?

Are you paranoid?

Sir Walter Raleigh I believe brought it from the American colony, he got it from the 'natives' or Native Americans as they are now called since they became human in white Americans' eyes. So I guess you could blame them, although they smoked tobacco, and other plants [wink wink] in a pipe. Someone somewhere [probably Britain] though it might be a good idea to put it in a paper tube for those who didn't like pipes, thus the cigar. Then ladies wanted something more petite for their little mouths, so their version the cigar-ette was invented.

Today, billions are dead because of living. In fact, trillions. Billions are dead because of wars - millions just from America's wars - so how about ranting about war? Just do it somewhere else huh?

GM is not a health risk to humans, this is what GM is all about newbielink:http://planetark.org/wen/68655 [nonactive]. I'll let you into a little secret, as somone who has been involved in green issues for decades - since the seventies. When GM first appeared as a technology, the scientists doing the work were gung-ho about it, as is usually the case, while ignoring [being totally unaware of] the implications and likely risks to the environment. Campaigning, writing letters and signing petitions [no internet forums the, no internet] and it wasn't getting anywhere as the general public were unconcerned about the environment and couldn't be energised by it. Campaigners pulled up GM maize plants at night, and dreamed up stunts to gain attention, but still it continued. Then some campaigners thought that perhaps more support might be got by suggesting there was a possibility human health even could be affected. The media were suddenly interested - Frankenstein Foods was a favourite headline - and it started to gain ground with the public at last. Since then, as these things go, harm to humans has become the prime concern and many are now convinced of it despite there being no scientific evidence.

The real concern of greens all along is the release of GM pollen into the environment from the labs where biohazard precautions exist, and the stupidity of those who thought fields trials could be limited to the fields chosen. Pollen flies everywhere however, and is now in the upper atmosphere travelling round the planet and dispersed everywhere; what we feared most. The danger is cross fertilizing between plants - our agricultural plants have millions of wild native cousins - and this is an ongoing problem even for humans since a food crop being resistant tp a particular pesticide is one thing, wild plants, or weeds as they're called gaining that resistance is bad news for farmers, though GM firms will just say 'we'll make another one' I'm sure.

So there you have it, a ploy by greens to get the public worried has resulted in many thinking GM is poisonous. Greens won't touch GM food because it encourages the polluting of the environment with novel organism that have never existed on the planet, so are going against evolution, which is balance; something chemists particularly don't seem to understand.

You have been mislead. Albeit for a worthy cause. You can relax about health issues, but the news on the environment is all bad.

Note in the article linked to above -  'The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday that an Indiana farmer violated agribusiness company Monsanto Co.'s patent for a type of soybean.' It's all about patents and profit.

What does Dr Oz say about the oil, what does Dr Blaylock say about the oil?

Oh, a TV 'doctor' talking about weight loss among other vital issues! Yes, he looks a reliable science source! LOL

Dr Blaylock, I have discovered, peddles pseudoscience via websites and books - there's always a book to sell with these quacks. He is criticised by a lot of people, not least by newbielink:http://www.skepdic.com/blaylock.html [nonactive], he even 'exposes' what he terms 'Obama's Nazi Healthcare System' which says to me that this is a rightwingnut who is against the poor of America getting free healthcare like all the actual civilised countries of the world like the UK, Germany, France, Holland, Canada, Sweden. Norway, Iceland, Cuba ... I could list many more, few come close to Cuba, the UK does quite well. In America though, a president has to fight tooth and nail to get minimal free healthcare, and is called a nazi by this creep who is much closer to being one than Obama; pot-kettle. Bet he can afford private medical insurance from selling all those books to dupes like you, so he doesn't have to worry about getting sick. And you actually think these charlatans are to be trusted because they pamper to your prejudices and conspiracy theories.

As I've already intimated, you're out of your depth here, can't understand science replies, appear to live in a bubble of rural ignorance. You'd be much happier at the youtube 'dark end' where all the conspiracists gather to fuel each others fantasies; perhaps it's all down to UFOs, have you thought of that? I understand that aliens are among us and doubtless poisoning American bodily fluids... perhaps you should be worried.

'Canola was developed through conventional plant breeding from rapeseed, an oilseed plant already used in ancient civilization as a fuel. The word “rape” in rapeseed comes from the Latin word “rapum,” meaning turnip. Turnip, rutabaga, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, mustard, and many other vegetables are related to the two natural canola varieties commonly grown, which are cultivars of Brassica napus and Brassica rapa. The change in name serves to distinguish it from natural rapeseed oil, which has much higher erucic acid content.' Which parts of that don't you understand? It's related to brassicas, do you worry cabbage or brussels sprouts might poison you?

No, less than 1 billion, though that still makes it a significant problem. (This quote is originally from miriam0920)

Raleigh might have brought the habit to Britain, but as far as Europe was concerned it was brought back much earlier by two of Columbus' crew.

Actually the cigar is probably a Caribbean invention, and the tube is made of tobacco leaf, not paper.

Quote

This is almost certainly not a fact. The number of humans who have ever been alive is estimated at somewhere between 10 and 20 billion. Certainly the present Earth's population is around 7 billion, and it is probably true that "more than half the humans who have ever lived are alive today".

However, having corrected these small points, my sympathy is very much with Peter in this debate.
