Popcorn Lung?

ShowHype: hype it up!
Oh man. I am concerned for my life now. I found this article this morning on popcorn lung. Having worked at a movie theatre, I think that I've more than inhaled my fair share of popcorn fumes, and I continue to get them every day I come to work! Hopefully this only applies to the microwave popped corn, I don't THINK we have the same chemicals in our popcorn. I know that I've been eating it more lately, and it's actually been tasting better to me. Maybe its because its been so long since I've really eaten it. Back to the article, I don't know how this guy could really eat microwaved popcorn twice a day for the past 20 years.

I'm actually feeling a little sick now, but this is a cold, not popcorn lung. At least I hope not. I want to get over it before my birthday. Thanks for all the early birthday wishes by the way! Glad to know that there are people who read my ramblings out there. :-P.

Anyway, just thought I'd keep you updated on some of the other reasons why you should go to the movies! If you let us pop your popcorn, you won' t have to worry about popcorn lung! C'mon.. that's a good reason right? Anyway, I'm off to get some rest.. gotta work tomorrow night. Later, folks!

They actually had this guy on the news this morning. I don't really like popcorn that much so I don't see how anyone could eat two bags a day! If I eat it at all it must be loaded with butter and salt...I'd be suffering from more than popcorn lung then. :o)

Happy birthday! Did I miss it? If I'm late, then happy belated birthday!

I LOVE microwave popcorn, and that story bummed me out. I eat at least one bag a week. But I certainly can't imagine eating two bags a day for decades! That's overkill. How did he have the appetite to eat anything else if he was always stuffing his face with popcorn?
