While people are getting worried about the "chemicals" in their popcorn, they fail to look at the rest of the picture.  You can find all the alternative ways to pop that popcorn in the microwave, but you are still using a microwave.  A MICROWAVE.  The chances that that popcorn will affect your health are so damn low compared to the effects of using a damned microwave and yet you worry about some chemicals without even knowing how chemistry works, while continuing to use A FRICKEN MICROWAVE!?!? Does no one see the problem with this mindset? Look at the numbers of how much micowave popcorn is being bought by US consumers.  Consider just how often microwaves are used to pop that popcorn.  How many microwaves.  That is a lot of fricken radiation going on while people are worried about what is in their popcorn.  It is unbelievable.     

  4. I've been using a popcorn air popper for years. Once popped spay some buttered flavored oil (no calories or fat) or sprinkle on Butter Buds.  Shake up the popcorn and then add your favorite spices or sprinkle on some grated parmesan cheese (from a container).  Yes, even the parmesan cheese has some fat and calories but you can monitor it.  Air popped popcorn takes getting used to but I haven’t had micro waved popcorn for many years now.
