"There are many toxic substances in some oils, even canola contains erucic acid. This acid can effect many organs. During the 1960's canola oil was marketed containing 40% erucic acid. Now with improved government standards, canola oil contains only 5%. This oil is a good choice with the new standard.

"Peanut oil may contain carcinogenic substances because peanuts are grown in damp places and contaminated by fungus . . . Cottonseed oil contains up to 1/2% of a cyclopropene fatty acid that has a toxic effect on the liver and gallbladder. It also interferes with the functioning of the needed essential fatty acids . . .

"One must be very careful not to use rancid oils. Heating oils to high temperatures produces free radical which damage the body. All oils should be refrigerated. Oils should be marketed in dark containers to protect them from light and heat."

From Prescription for Cooking & Dietary Wellness by James & Phyliss Balch.

I've been using expeller pressed canola oil for over ten years with no problems, I also use olive oil and grapeseed oil. I believe grapeseed oil has a higher temperature tolerance.

As for margarine, I use earth balance, possible it is made with canola oil but as I said the information you read is undoubtedly referring to the days when canola oil contained high amounts of erucic acid, which is no longer the case.

You can try rice milk, I don't care for it much, you can also try almond milk, the only brand I like is Almond Breeze, it's light and tasty.

You should be able to make bread using any kind of oil, I don't know why it would fall apart, my recipe calls for soy milk powder but I imagine you could use rice milk powder if you can find it. Or maybe just try using rice milk in place of the water.
