Popcorn Lung

apg_popcorn_070906_ms.jpg  — A flavoring agent in microwave butter-flavored popcorn, diacetyl, has been known to cause a rare lung condition, popcorn lung, in workers at factories producing the product.  Now there’s the first known consumer case in a guy who consumed two bags daily for a long time…he sure got his fiber…and guess who he’s suing? — The store that sold him the popcorn!

–Is this a great country, or what?–Popcorn without diacetyl is still a safe, rather healthy snack, and I’m gonna eat it!
