(NaturalNews) Hexane is a colorless and odorless hydrocarbon vapor that comes from crude oil and is used to make most grape seed oil. Hexanes in general are significant constituents of gasoline and are also widely used as cheap solvents. Red "health" flags should go up right away. You may have heard of hexanes used for the glue in shoes, for leather products and for roofing. The FDA allows U.S. food oils to be prepared using hexane as an extraction method, and this is quite common for canola oil and grape seed oil. I may have just "ruined" about 30 of your regular "meals." Health enthusiasts will be disappointed to learn this, because the latest, greatest "word" about grape seed oil is that it withstands high heat well, unlike olive oil. (http://scienceornot.net)

If you've been frying foods, like mushrooms and artichokes, at high heat with grape seed oil, you may have thought that you were choosing the right oil. Oops. You were wrong. You should be using coconut oil. Ask your naturopath about this soon and find out yourself. Ask your nutritionist and use internet search engines for research. It's all there in black and white.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, hexane serves as a degreaser and a cleaning agent, but still, somehow, it's sold as edible oil. So what if it tolerates high heat if it's your health that's "under fire!"

"Sheeple" are people who fall for health fads

Barely a month goes by without some new "health food" fad getting written up and promoted in the mainstream media. They love to "close by choice" and offer two or three toxic foods for the "sheeple" to choose from, limiting the sheeple people to the lesser of evils. Have you ever heard about eating less red meat? That's just a ploy to keep people eating GMO-fed chicken, turkey and pig. In many cases, research and "studies" done by leading universities are under the guise of Big Food and corporate greed, meant to mislead consumers down a destructive health path. If you think that you may be one of the "sheeple," take the sheeple quiz now and find out (http://www.naturalnews.com). That wreck is going down. Get out before you "drown."

Since organic food has literally taken off in the past decade, we are seeing about a $15 billion per year industry get mobbed by corporate infiltration. Companies like Horizon and Kashi have sold out to GMO backers, and it's hard to know who to trust these days. Are you buying organic grape seed oil, or can you even find it? Trader Joe's says they do not use hexane in their grape seed oil production, but since there are no checks and balances for their inspections, that may require further looking into.

Separating Fact from Fiction

In February of 2010, reports surfaced that an employee of Wintek Corporation, an Apple contractor in China, died due to hexane poisoning. Wintek manufactures iPhone touchscreen components, and the hexane was being used as a replacement for alcohol for cleaning the screens. Over 100 employees also required treatment for hexane poisoning around that same time. Since then, Apple ceased using hexane. Go figure.

Grape seed oil is actually processed from the seeds of grapes and is formed as a byproduct of wine making. This is actually a brilliant idea from a business perspective; however, extracting oil from seeds simply was not an available "process" 100 years ago. The downside of course is that industrial processing involves high heat and various chemicals, often the toxic solvent hexane. How do you think rapeseed oil becomes canola?

Nifty names like "cold-pressed" and "expeller-pressed" refer to natural ways to extract oil from seeds, but if your oil doesn't explicitly state how it is processed, assume that they used hexane! Plus, grape seed oil is typically low in nutrients, so make that switch to coconut oil, and be safe. Check out the fatty acid composition of typical grape seed oil:

• Saturated: 10%
• Monounsaturated: 16%
Polyunsaturated: 70%

Your Health is Under Fire!

Bottom line: Hexane is carcinogenic for ALL animals. Also, don't be fooled by the term "organic solvents." Organic solvents are poisonous if swallowed or inhaled in sufficient quantity. Long-term exposure (or consumption) of solvents can cause brain damage. In particular, chlorinated hydrocarbons are implicated. Hexane, one of the most volatile petroleum distillates, can cause peripheral neuropathy, nerve inflammation and possible paralysis of arms and legs. Permanent damage to the central nervous system can result.

The EPA doesn't care and won't classify hexane as a cancer-causing product. They just warn you about inhaling it. Oh, really? Okay, so then I won't inhale any gasoline fumes either, but I guess it's okay for cleaning food? This next "hunk of garbage" comes to you straight from the EPA website: "No information is available on the carcinogenic effects of hexane in humans or animals. EPA has classified hexane as a Group D, not classifiable as to human carcinogenicity."


Yet they warn you that neurotoxic effects have been exhibited in rats. Last time I checked, rats were animals! How stupid do they think we all are?
