Ask the Diva: Is Microwave Popcorn Bad for You?
Q. I just read an article that says microwave popcorn bags contain a dangerous chemical that ends up in the popcorn we eat. Is this true and, if so, is it true for all microwave popcorn, including organic brands?
A. Yeah, I am not a big fan of microwave popcorn products. Chemicals in the bags are one concern. They’re also sky-high in sodium and the artificial flavorings and colorings are a real turnoff, too. Plus, the cheapskate in me can’t get over the fact that for what you spend for three little over-salted bags, you can buy enough popcorn to fill a small room.
