    I never really paid attention to what the doctors and specialists said about anything! But, I know how much you're gonna miss popcorn because I love it too!

    Well, I have an ambiguous feeling about reports of "dangerous" food.
    On one hand, I of course don't want to eat unhealthy (or even almost poisonous) food.
    On the other hand, if you look around, you find shocking reports on all kind of food, they even claim that our "modern" flour and salt are mixed with stuff that are dangerous. The same is true for all kinds of dye for cloths, for washing powder, for cosmetics, furniture etc.
    There are lots of arguments going on about organic food here - some scientific reports claim that they are healthier than normal food, whereas other reports say they are not different, but cost a lot more due to the "organic" label.
    Certainly I try to feed my family healthy (which of course doesn't mean never to eat french fries or sweets), but if I was living completely according all those reports, my family would starve

    And,
    You have been eating the microwave popcorn already, so if it really was dangerous than you are already in danger right? :']
    I'm on a diet so no popcorn for me either way

    Well, just want to let you know, that I work at a law firm, and that "popcorn lung disease" had to do with the way they CREATE the microwave popcorn and it's packaging, that the fumes within the factory were toxic, causing this problem with its employees - not the people who eat it. We have had many discussions with a law firm in Missouri, USA where one of the lawsuits is being handled (because there is a processing plant for microwave popcorn there). Just to put your mind at ease a little. But I COMPLETELY agree/understand your worry about it.

    But I agree - I doubt with all it's artificial ingredients that it's all that healthy. But, as everyone else has also noted, pretty much everything is giving us cancer these days. Not a good thing. I'd think to let yourself have a bag of it once in a great while would be okay. But, it's a healthy choice you're making!

    Since I moved where I live now, I live right across from an organic store. Everything they sell is organic, from foods to baby clothing! But, due to convenience, I've been buying a lot more from this store because it's literally across the street from me. I love knowing it's organic, because where I live, everyone is talking about "organic" and we're a pretty health conscious community... (though -as you say, with money issues, that's really hard to do...So I am not as health conscious as I'd like to be.) Luckily, studies have shown that it doesn't seem to always make a difference for some things if it's organic or not. They're equally healthy. Anyway, guess this was a big tangent. Sorry!

    I'm trying to cut out some of my sweets and carbs. Need to get healthy and lose weight. This is NOT an easy task. Goodbye my delicious friends!

    I knew about the workers get it because of the "workers" part in the name but I thought, hey if they can get it can't I? Thanks for clearing that up

    Not really a healthy choice I'm just moving the way it's made Although I bet airblown will be healthier

    Oh geeze I don't think I could live without some sweets like chocolate If you want to not cut it out completely but be healthier try some organic dark chocolate It's sooooo good and Dark is better for you than milk right? Plus it's got the organic label on it

    Edit: Lol! That would be funny if this thread was about a "Delicious" member

    I think the key to everything is moderation. There are many foods that are bad for you if you consume them in mass quantities and on a regular basis, but as an occassional treat I doubt there are many foods out there that will do permanant harm to your body. I prefer not to worry too much about such things anymore. Perhaps all these studies declaring certain foods unhealthy have caused me to have a "Boy That Cried Wolf" response to them, as it seems there are too many out there these days for me to pay them any mind any more.

    Today into the pot went a head of cabbage, two potatoes and some leftover chicken pieces. Simmered it up and immediately responders from the fast celphone IMing Facebook MySpace text fast food society came running in "whats that smell whats that smell"

    Eat what you want, somebody will complain.

    And if i may say so, there are many situations where studies used to say that something was not good to our health and nowadays some other studies say the complete opposite. i can name you an example - sardines.
    Here in my country we have this a lot, and till some years ago doctors used to say we should avoid sardines. Now they say it helps to control the bad colestherol.
    So what is good today maybe in the future they will find out that after all it wasnt so good like they used to say. and vice versa.
    I think we shouldnt overcomplicate and completely aggree with jack, moderation is the key.
