8. Microwave Popcorn
Ah – movies and popcorn on your own best couch. What could be better? There’s nothing wrong with popcorn (as long as you go easy on the salt and butter) and there’s nothing wrong with microwaving food. So what’s the issue with microwave popcorn?
It’s the bag. Perfluoroalkyls are just one class of chemical found in microwave popcorn bags. Studies have linked perfluoroalkyls with health problems as diverse as kidney disease and poor semen quality – something you’re going to regret at some point of your life if you’re most guys.
