Defend Canola Oil

Dr. David L. Katz, the founding director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center, stands up for canola oil and plant biotechnology in U.S. News & World Report. “For those who disagree about canola, it’s not because they know something I don’t know; I have Google, too. It’s because they believe something I don’t believe,” he said, noting that genetic modification is their principal concern. “Information is not knowledge; information must be interpreted to be knowledge. Expertise facilitates interpretation.” To this end, Katz uses canola oil himself because of its healthy fats and high smoke point.
