(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 oil is also in ingredient often used in so-called "vegetable oil" shown on the ingredients label.
This canola oil-based pesticide also says on the label: "Environmental Hazards: Do not apply directly to water. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment..."
Soybean oil also an active pesticide ingredient
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 daily diet?
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.
In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
