    Default Goodbye, Delicious Friend!

    That's it, i've had my last bag ever today It's time for me to finally say goodbye to...


    Microwave popcorn! , recent reports have said that it is extremely bad for you, containing ingredients that can cause cancer and give you a disease that will destroy lung tissue (Even though the FDA said it was safe, i'd rather not take the chance ) (Just the pre-bagged and microwave ready stuff though not the airblown or stove cooked )

    I will miss you dearly!

    At least I can still put the kernals in a brown paper bag and microwave them

    Anyone else have any food's their kicking because of certain health hazards? or just because?

    heart honestly think about it...everything gives you cancer these days...
    breathing = lung cancer
    being outside = skin cancer
    making love = HPV = cervical cancer

    not to mention heart disease from some artificial sweetners, fatty foods, etc etc etc

    i really wouldn't worry about it if i were you because if you did you'd be sitting in a corner wrapped in bubble wrap eating raw carrots all your life ( but then your skin would turn orange).....lol

    I agree with you. The other day I saw a report on the news saying that there have been proofs that fish grilled in too high temperatures may give you cancer.

    I'm not sure raw carrots are a good option. With all the weird stuff they put on the food, you'll get some other sort of diseases.
    McDonalds' burgers are the way to go - they claim it to be 100% cow meat, anyway.

    It's a pity tho, about the popcorn. Lately I eat alot of microwave popcorn because it's quicker to do, and there's not much mess to clean. The stove one requires me to wash the pan, and the airblown isn't as sweet.

    I realize that but somethings are riskier than others and are best to be avoided See for yourself by typing in "Is microwave popcorn bad for you" in google I've read enough when I got to "Popcorn worker's lung" disease

    When I saw this thread up on the Index I thought we were saying goodbye to a member who was leaving. Was wondering who I met on here that would be described "delicious" ? Quit eating the buttery varieties long ago. Still like the lite and low salt ones. I could live without it completely - good luck in not missing it too much.

    However the peanut scare has me very upset. I cannot go without my peanut butter but so far they say it is still safe. Better stay that way.
