Is Popcorn Giving You Heart Disease?





Quote:
Oh, great. Just when you were starting to get a handle on your BPA exposure, scientists uncover a new one you should worry about. It’s called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)—a chemical found in things like nonstick cookware, food wrappers, furniture, and even raincoats—and it’s been linked to cardiovascular disease, according to a new study. The kicker? A full 98% of us have PFOA in our bloodstreams.

Re: Is Popcorn Giving You Heart Disease?

I never buy PTFE (Telfon) cookware, nor do I use aluminium. I don't really understand anyone does.

PTFE never stays stuck to your pots, I never fancied consuming it so I won't buy it.

Anyone who has properly cleaned bare aluminium pots will have seen the discoloured water: aluminium oxide deposits, clearly not good for you.

Every time I see aluminium and/or telfon cookware, I just think back to the Victorian era with their lead plumbing, mercury hat polishes and arsenic medicines. Some day, people will learn.

Re: Is Popcorn Giving You Heart Disease?

BTW, is the popcorn feature of this story referencing those glossy coated grey cardboard inserts that you find in microwave popcorn and other microwave foods?

I'm not a fan of such things either but I hadn't ever thought about what they're made from.

Stainless Steel. That is all.

Popcorn popped on the stovetop is delicious and keeps my bowels moving.
