Ditch the Microwave Popcorn!

Microwave Popcorn causes cancer

If you’re like me and trying to avoid putting unnecessary chemicals in your body, then ditch your microwave popcorn! FDA reports indicate that the chemical coating used in microwave popcorn bags becomes a “likely carcinogen” when it’s heated. Yikes!  Also, Diacetyl, the substance used to give it that delicious buttery taste can potentially give you “popcorn lung” ( i.e. bronchiolitis obliterans—a severe respiratory disease).

So, what’s your popcorn-loving family to do???  Choose a healthier alternative, like air-popped corn.  Right now Walmart has the Presto PopLite Hot Air Popcorn Popper for just $19.88.  Plus, keep in mind a bag of popcorn kernels will only cost you about $2 and will give 20x the amount of servings as one box of microwave popcorn.
