Carcinogenic Chemicals Cause Concern for Popcorn Lovers

Recent studies have shown that the microwave popcorn you’re family regularly eats can be harmful to your health. FDA and EPA studies are being conducted, but what is being done to ensure your family is safe? The studies show that the chemicals used to in all popcorn bags, Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) also known as C8 (a Teflon Chemical),can cause cancer in animals but more research needs to be done to find out what the affects are in humans.

Recent studies have shown that the microwave popcorn you’re family regularly eats can be harmful to your health. The FDA and the EPA are conducting studies, but what is being done to ensure your family is safe?

The studies show that the chemicals used in all popcorn bags, known as Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) also known as C8 (a Teflon Chemical), can cause cancer in animals but more research needs to be done to find out what the affects of these chemicals are in humans.

According to Daily News Central “In a study published last month, Food and Drug Administration researchers said microwave popcorn bags alone could expose the public to 'hundreds of times' more C8 than normal use of nonstick cookware.” The C8 is then ingested by the people eating the popcorn.

Maureen McFadden of WDNU reported on 5/3/06: “Recent tests found PFOA, which can be extracted from Fluorotelomer, does cause cancer in animals.” Scientist Glen Evers explains, “Even before we cook the popcorn, the butter is already contaminated with a paper flurochemical that will be absorbed into your blood and stay in your blood for a long, long time.”

“In particular, microwave popcorn bags have the most fluorotelomers of any food wrapper, and the high cooking temperatures increase the migration of these chemicals into the popcorn oil. It is estimated that microwave popcorn may account for more than 20% of the average PFOA levels measured in American residents.” See Wikipedia for more details.

Just opening a bag of microwave popcorn can be hazardous to your health but nothing is set to be done until the year 2015, when the companies who manufacture the harmful Teflon chemical have stated they will eliminate it.

NDTV reported the following: “The Environmental Protection Agency is studying the chemicals released into the air when a bag of microwave popcorn is popped or opened. Exposure to vapors from butter flavoring in microwave popcorn has been linked to a rare lung disease contracted by factory workers in Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska.”

So what can you do to protect your family? Popcorn is a staple and an affordable luxury for families around the world. A new company headed by Jaci Rae has come up with an affordable, practical and convenient solution that will help ensure you and your family isn’t being exposed to toxic chemicals when eating this delectable treat.

There are no additives, preservatives and/or chemicals that are now being found in the microwave-popcorn you're used to. You and your family deserve to know you are safe before 2015.
