popcorn lung disease

"Microvable popcorn fumes may cause lung cancer".. yes, i have actually read that line from google headline news just last week.. and upon reading the news title, i really cant figure it out how a popcorn can cause a serious and dangerous disease, the commonly called big C, or simply cancer.. but anyway, according to my readings, one pulmonary specialist believed that his certain patient developed lung disease from the fumes of microwavable popcorn that he consumed almost everyday for one year.. there i realized the disease was not actually developed because of too much eating of popcorn but a too much exposure to the chemical fumes.. though a doctor said that they cant really confirm that the patient's exposure to butter flavored popcorn from daily preparation has really caused his lung cancer, the doctor also explained they dont have any plausible reasons how the disease was developed in the patient's system..

as quoted from the google news, the doctors are just alerting the people with this:
"exposure to food flavor chemicals is not just killing workers, but may also be causing disease in people exposed to food flavor chemicals in their kitchens"..

chemicals can really be harmful so be careful in exposing too much to the chemicals around you, this goes especially to workers exposed to chemicals used in foods..

WOW thats crazy thought, We could ge cancer from over exposure to the microwave Geesh.

Thanx for the info

  • i really don't know how to describe myself. i might think i am like this and that but i don't know if what i think i am is the same as how i appear to the people. i'm simply complicated as if my life is a mere bluff -- a really BIG BLUFF! i always carry my pessimism with me but i'm trying not to be consumed by my own negativity. see? i'm really complicated! LoL! i always love to think of myself understanding things logically. i like puzzling things out. i want to dissect every premises and formulate my own understanding and eventually a conclusion on a certain matter. that's how i make things complicated! haha.. i don't have lots of experiences, my life is boring, it only have shades of white and black all through the journey but i learn from my few experiences and from others' experiences as well. so even if i still don't have broad experiences as many people do, i want to believe that i'm still able to learn what life really is and now i'm still learning and forever be growing! thanks to the people around me! anyway, welcome to my blog! you may think this is just another nonsense blog -- yeah even i, myself, think that way! but that's ok, after all, this is my page!
