I discovered an allergy to Canola oil (Rapeseed) from of the Brassicaceae family. i don't get sick but my allergy makes my skin itch in different areas particularly starting on my ear. I believe sunflower oil also does this but it is so hard to narrow down. nearly everything has canola in it and its more rare to find items with soybean oil which i don't seem to have a reaction to. Part of the brassicaceae family includes broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards, turnips and radish....i am hoping i'm not allergic to these other vegetables because i love them but i'm starting to narrow things down. one day i had eaten some radish and it seemed to cause pain in my gallbladder area which is organ that is known to be an indicator for allergies to a food... hope this helps some people

Tree pollen is in many 'natural' 'healthy' foods - eg Kiwi and I cannot eat it without severe burning to the mouth and throat. Additives containing Soya / E471, polyoils etc. may be causing gut problems in the population and now I discover sunflower oil is also causing me big problems. Food manufacturers don't seem to care.

In 2014 industries started using sunflower oil in almost everything. My face has been numb since sept 2014. It took me till this year to figure out the cause.  Sunflower oil is in almost all processed food. Im hoping that as more and more people have issues they switch to a new oil but hey cooking our own food is healthier...
