Toxic Popcorn...Again?!?

How hard can it be to make popcorn....seriously, folks?!?

Click for the full article, though if you are snacking on popcorn, you'd be best off finishing it first.

"Two years ago, Orville Redenbacher soared from the graveyard and announced in weeks of TV ads that his popcorn was now free of diacetyl. That's the chemical in artificial butter flavoring that has been blamed for sickening hundreds of workers, killing a handful and destroying the lungs of at least three microwave popcorn addicts.

Almost every other popcorn maker followed suit.

But now, government health investigators are reporting that the "new, safer, butter substitutes" used in popcorn and others foods are, in some cases, at least as toxic as what they replaced."

Thanks for reading - I heart comments! Please keep them at least vaguely on topic and respectful, thanks!
