DESCRIPTION: The artificial butter flavoring diacetyl has been linked not only to deaths of workers handling the chemical, but also to serious lung disease in consumers of microwave popcorn.
My previous video on the topic is Is Artificial Butter Flavor Harmful (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-artificial-butter-flavor-harmful/)?
What about food dyes? Are Artificial Colors Bad for You (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/are-artificial-colors-bad-for-you/)? The next video I have coming out is Artificial Food Colors and ADHD (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/artificial-food-colors-and-adhd).
What else can we do to protect our lungs?
• Treating COPD With Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/treating-copd-with-diet/)
• Preventing COPD With Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-copd-with-diet/)
• Lung Cancer Metastases and Broccoli (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/lung-cancer-metastases-and-broccoli/)
• Meat Fumes: Dietary Secondhand Smoke (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/meat-fumes-dietary-secondhand-smoke/)
Meat safety is another example of regulatory breakdown. See, for example, Drug Residues in Meat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/drug-residues-in-meat/), Deadly But Not Illegal (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/salmonella-in-chicken-turkey-deadly-but-not-illegal/) and Past the Age of Miracles (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/past-the-age-of-miracles-facing-a-post-antibiotic-age).
Anyone have any good recipes for making air-popped popcorn delicious? I spritz with some Bragg’s and sprinkle on chlorella and nutritional yeast.
