Popcorn, Hold the Carcinogens


This story has been around for a while apparently but I had missed it until I saw a CNN video piece on yesterday (it’s gone now, so no link).

Here’s the gist:

Results of a study by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published in October reveal that compounds known to break down into the suspected carcinogen PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) may be served up to millions of unwitting consumers in bags of microwave popcorn. The family treat could account for more than 20% of the average PFOA levels now measured in the blood of U.S. residents.

Thanks Jangel
