Rancid oils won't make you sick, they just have an off flavor and smell.
Rancid oils are toxic, as with any "bad" food. They may not make you sick per se, but can cause damage at the cellular level. Sun doesn't make you sick either, but it can and does damage cells if you're out in it on a consistent basis. Just using that as a comparison. Do some research on it.
