6. Microwaving Popcorn
It’s not that popcorn is bad for you, or that microwaves are evil or anything like that. It’s more about the ingredients in those microwavable popcorn pouches. A lot of the time they include diacetyl, which is a synthetic oil that when heated evaporates, you breathe it in and it damages your lungs. So next time you microwave yourself some popcorn for movie night – wait a little and let your popcorn cool before taking it out of the microwave. It’ll take just a couple of minutes, but your lungs will thank you.
