Are you eating pesticides? Canola oil, soybean oil used as key ingredients
in pesticide products
June 29, 2011
(NaturalNews) In a shocking new video, Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) reveals
that common cooking oils such as canola oil and soybean oil are used as key
active ingredients in pesticide products because they work so effectively to
kill bugs. The video shows how one pesticide product that kills insects is made
with 96% canola oil and is so dangerous that the label says, "Hazards to
humans and domestic animals."
The label of the product, made almost entirely with canola oil, goes on to
explain "CAUTION: Avoid contact with skin or
clothing." If you get
it on yourself, you are directed to take off all your contaminated clothing,
take a 15-20 minute shower to rinse the
canola oil off your
skin, and then "Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice."

Again, this is a for an insecticide that's made of 96%
canola oil -- an oil that's
found throughout the food
supply and especially in
products such as salad dressings and snack chips. Canola

The chemical company Bayer also makes a "natural"
insect killing product called Natria. It's most prominent active ingredient?
Soybean oil (most of which is almost certainly genetically modified).
Much like canola oil,
soybean oil is nearly ubiquitous in the U.S.
food supply, being found in
countless manufactured food items sold at grocery stores everywhere. In his
video, Adams asks the
obvious question: If these oils kill
insects so effectively,
and if they are harmful to pets,
skin and the environment, why are we
eating them as part of our
Adams also suggests that if you want a low-cost but highly-effective natural
pesticide, just buy canola oil from your grocery
store and spray that on
bugs. "We've tested it and it really works to kill bugs," Adams says. Plus, it's
less than half the cost of
the natural pesticide products made almost entirely with canola oil.
