It has been known for a long time that popcorn is considered one of the healthiest snacks, if it’s prepared at home, the old, traditional and healthy way. We recommend that when you are at the supermarket, you never buy popcorn packets that are intended for cooking in a microwave oven because they are very harmful to the body and of course health.
Instead, select packets that contain whole grains of wheat, which you yourselves can prepare at home and make healthy popcorn.
What do you need to know about popcorn that is made using a microwave oven?
The packaging in which the popcorn grains are packed contains perfluorochemicals – an ingredient which is very harmful and causes various diseases of the reproductive system and it’s a scientifically proven cause of various types of cancer.
When this harmful ingredient is melted under heat from the microwave oven, it sticks to the popcorn that is inside the bag. Then it is ingested into the body through the popcorn and remains there for a long time. It is believed that this harmful ingredient belongs to the plastic group and therefore can quickly and easily be processed and released from the body.
Also, the artificial buttery flavor that lures buyers is caused by another harmful chemical ingredient that is placed in the interior of the packaging. It is known under the name diacetyl, which is directly related to damaging of the lungs.
Consumption of this harmful popcorn causes various health disorders, digestive disorders, allergies to certain types of food, pulmonary diseases, impairs normal function and operation of the thyroid gland, causing a variety of tumors and cancers.
The next time you decide to watch a movie, make your own popcorn and don’t run the risk of getting one of the above mentioned diseases.
The time needed to prepare popcorn this way is longer, but the popcorn will be much healthier and nutritious because it is seasoned with natural spices and has no artificial chemicals added.
