When your popcorn is killing you

Popcorn is a great snack cooked up in some organic grapeseed oil, slathered with melted organic butter and dusted with sea salt. Yum! But, bags of nuked popcorn; you know, the 2 minute variety, is a whole different story. First off, the butter flavoring in microwave popcorn uses a nasty chemical called diacetyl – which is linked to lung disease. And that’s just the first problem… The bags it is popped in are made with the non-stick Teflon PFOA and can cause cancer, thyroid disease, child development problems, birth defects and increases infertility by 154%. Nuking the microwave popcorn sends the Teflon chemicals into the popcorn and eventually into the blood. Most of the cancers from PFOA manifests in the liver, pancreas, testicles, prostate and mammary glands. And movie popcorn… don’t even get me started on how bad that one is. When we go to the movies, we take our own organic popped popcorn with us. No one has turned us away from the theater yet.

This is so wrong on many levels...
