    I've always loathed the stench of microwave popcorn. Now, it seems there's proof positive that the shit is poison:

    Microwave popcorn was good at first ... before it got too buttery.

    Early microwave popcorn had that metallic aftertaste. I could never get past that.

    And the smell is horrific.

    Should have saved my old ass oil popper.

    This is bullshit.

    "We cannot be sure that this patient's exposure to butter flavored microwave popcorn from daily heavy preparation has caused his lung disease," cautioned Dr. Cecile Rose. "However, we have no other plausible explanation."


    it was a "consumer who developed lung disease from the fumes of microwaving popcorn several times a day for years."

    Reminds me of Carlin's joke that saliva causes stomach cancer, but only when swallowed in small portions over a long period of time.

    I'm with Yawn. Bullshit on all of this. Every time something comes along I like, the food/drink police want to ban it. First it was movie popcorn. Now they're going after microwave, which is pretty damn good.
    Screw the whole Mother Hubbard/Nanny State/It Takes A Village Bunch of Assholes. F--ing busybodies.

    There's a girl in our office who pops a white cheese popcorn in the microwave. I swear it makes the office smell like old socks! It can't be good for her.

    Does anyone remember that mystery-colored popcorn? You'd put a nondescript bag in the microwave, nuke it, and open it to find out if you got red, purple, green, etc. Cree-pee.

    You are right, hondo. Lung cancer is but a small price to pay for artificially-flavored butter-like coatings.

    Let them eat popcorn in an iron lung!
