Killer Popcorn

Doctor Links a Man’s Illness to a Microwave Popcorn Habit
New York Times, Sept. 5, 2007

If you actually read the story, you see that the man’s doctor says that there “is not a definitive causal link” between popcorn and the man’s health problems.

You’ve gotta love the total overreaction to one case where popcorn may have caused a lung problem.

The Bush administration had better crack down on this pronto!!!

Frankly, I’d rather get a lung disease and die than live in a country where the government tells me I can’t eat popcorn! You can take my popcorn when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands!

I’m going to go pop up a batch right now in protest!

Have a nice day . . .

    Hi HW –

    For once I have to agree with you…

    For a country founded on freedom, we are really pathetic sometimes. Granted, some people may use their freedom to do things that are not exactly good for them, like eat two bags of microwave popcorn with extra butter every day until they get sick, but why does this require massive government intervention?

    Let people enjoy their harmful pleasures, even if it kills them…
