OMAHA, Neb.–ConAgra Foods Inc., the largest microwave popcorn maker in the United States, will change the recipe for its Orville Redenbacher and Act II brands over the next year to remove a flavouring chemical linked to a lung ailment in popcorn plant workers, the company said yesterday.
The announcement comes a day after a doctor at a leading lung research hospital warned in a letter to federal regulators that consumers, not just factory workers, may be in danger from fumes from buttery flavouring in microwave popcorn.
ConAgra spokesperson Stephanie Childs said the company decided in recent months to remove the butter flavouring diacetyl from its popcorn because of the risk to workers who handle large quantities.
The chemical diacetyl has been linked to cases of bronchiolitis obliterans, a rare life-threatening disease often called popcorn lung.
Yet another reason to avoid gm products like corn and not using the microwave. You could, however, make your popcorn the old fashioned way in a pot, and use coconut oil
to pop it in and to flavor it, and seasalt, it contains no aluminum like table salt does. Beware!
Industrial Sources of Dioxin Poisoning in Mossville, Louisiana:
Mossville residents are surrounded by 14 toxic industrial facilities, several of which routinely release dioxins into the air, water, and land. Residents have long complained about health problems that a university health study has linked to industrial pollution. However, governmental agencies continue to issue permits which allow the industrial facilities to increase the amount of toxic pollution, including dioxins, that they release into the Mossville community...
Against great odds, Mossville residents continue to struggle to protect their health and future generations from toxic exposures that threaten their very survival. This report provides recommendations for corrective governmental action that would protect the human right to a healthy environment which is being violated in Mossville and numerous communities across the United States that are severely burdened with toxic pollution.

a few reminders about the ubiquitous microwave
Two researchers, Blanc and Hertel, confirmed that microwave cooking significantly changes food nutrients. Hertel previously worked as a food scientist for several years with one of the major Swiss food companies. He was fired from his job for questioning procedures in processing food because they denatured it. He got together with Blanc of the Swiss Federal Institute of Biochemistry and the University Institute for Biochemistry.
They studied the effect that microwaved food had on eight individuals, by taking blood samples immediately after eating. They found that after eating microwaved food, haemoglobin levels decreased. "These results show anaemic tendencies. The situation became even more pronounced during the second month of the study".
Who knows what results they would have found if they had studied people who ate microwaved food for a year or more?
The violent change that microwaving causes to the food molecules forms new life forms called radiolytic compounds. These are mutations that are unknown in the natural world. Ordinary cooking also causes the formation of some radiolytic compounds (which is no doubt one reason why it is better to eat plenty of raw food), but microwaving cooking causes a much greater number. This then causes deterioration in your blood and immune system.
Now of course I have a terrific hankering for some yummy microwaved popcorn....
The CellPower™ has given me the power boost towards great health. It properly adjusts the body pH, fights viruses,bacteria, and fungi,helps lower blood pressure, adds enzymes to the body lost from cooking foods. It can help with:Allergies pH imbalances Emphysema Indigestion Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Kidney infections Chronic fatigue syndrome Skin disorders Bronchial asthma Arthritis and joint pain Short-term memory loss Fibromyalgia Viral, fungal, and bacterial infections Muscle pain Candidiasis, and for me it HAS! If you must eat all that popcorn with diacetyl then the added benefit of cell infusion with oxygen in CellPower™ will help you combat that popcorn lung!
Currrently I'm holding my weight and my afternoon blood sugar readings are under a hundred but then I'm skipping lunch because I really don't need to eat so much, an apple is quite enough.
Some of the things I've learned while doing this journal:

I've also learned not to eat ANY MSG it puts weight on, seriously! Or any /high Fructose Corn syrup, it also makes the extra poundage gather at the waist.

~~~Yesterday I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for Hershey the
wonder dog at Wal-Mart and was about to check out.
A woman behind me asked if I had a dog. On impulse, I told her that no, I
didn't have a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet again.
Although I probably shouldn't, because I'd ended up in the hospital last time,
but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes
coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it
works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or
two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I
was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically
everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story.)
Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog
food poisoned me. I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish
Setter and a car hit us both.
I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was
laughing so hard! Walmart won't let me shop there anymore!!!
Have a Blessed day!
