Western Canada's Canola Boom

• arclein
A plant that didn’t even exist a few decades ago is now King Canola, a supercrop that generates a high-protein cattle meal and a vegetable oil that’s highly coveted for its health benefits. In 2010, the plant was the most valuable cash crop in Canada, with $5.6-billion in farm sales. It bypassed wheat – with $3.5-billion – which, although enjoying a price surge recently, has often languished from low prices and shifting markets.

That stuff is just Rapeseed. It's not new, it's an undesirable product that was renamed to make it seem desirable. It's NOT good for you. It's long-term effects are counter to health. This bad article with spurious reporting is what I have come to expect from Robert Klein's pseudo-science.
