    Just a heads-up guys... be careful!

    According to the reports, you have to breathe a lot of the stuff to develop "popcorn lung". Doctors advise against savoring the aroma of the popcorn before eating it.

    I don't know if any of our local popcorn (or Holy Kettle Corn) use the flavoring agent (it's an artificial butter flavoring, so chances are HKC doesn't have it), but it's best to read the package and be careful. ;)

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Yikes! Thanks for the heads up! Microwave popcorn's a standard fare when I'm on my weekend DVD marathons.
