The Popcorn Problem

The Pump Handle has a scathing and rather startling rundown on the risk of microwave popcorn, specifically a butter-flavoring chemical called diacetyl, and federal regulators' failure to act to protect consumer health. The anecdotes in the comments are especially disconcerting. Makes me glad we've never owned a microwave (until last month). A great testament to the power of informed blogging.
