3. Microwave Popcorn
The expert: Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group,
The problem: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from UCLA. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize—and migrate into your popcorn. "They stay in your body for years and accumulate there," says Naidenko, which is why researchers worry that levels in humans could approach the amounts causing cancers in laboratory animals. DuPont and other manufacturers have promised to phase out PFOA by 2015 under a voluntary EPA plan, but millions of bags of popcorn will be sold between now and then.
The solution: Pop natural kernels the old-fashioned way: in a skillet. For flavorings, you can add real butter or dried seasonings, such as dillweed, vegetable flakes, or soup mix

This is just an email my wife sent me, I dont know the rest of it, but makes sense since she went thru that and so is her sister and they ate tons of it. Luckily I grew up poor and if we didnt hunt or fish it, or part of a regular meal we didnt have it
Do you know you're being watched?

You forgot about the Lung cancer too.

Its a huge problem for those working in the popcorn industry.
Sounds silly, but its true..mesothelioma, from the chemicals in the
steam of freshly popped corn.

So when you first get a bag out of the microwave..
RESIST AT ALL COSTS
..the urge to get that first big whiff..

Its very dangerous.
