5. Microwaving Popcorn
Did you know that the majority of pouches that microwavable popcorn is sold in are made with harmful ingredients? These little things contain diacetyl. This is a synthetic element that can easily evaporate when you heat the food. Whenever you breathe this type of synthetic oil in, you do harm to your lungs and respiratory system. To make your popcorn less dangerous, let the food cool after you take it out of the oven. Besides the pouches, you should keep in mind that microwavable food is not the best option in general.
