A few months ago I read a truly brilliant and terrifying article in Best Life by author Susan Casey called Plastic Ocean (If you can, stop what you are doing and go read it now). Among the startling discoveries the story reveals (like that there is a “garbage patch” in the Pacific Ocean twice the size of Texas) is that microwave popcorn is one of the worst things you can eat. Each bite of it adds a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid to your system. Not a good thing. With this new Safe-like phobia in mind, I was particularly delighted (no pun!) when Lynda from delight.com pointed out this story at Instructables to me. How to make home made popcorn, cheap and easy. While the simple how-to’s main goal is to save you money, nothing’s more valuable that your health. So stop eating that pre-packaged crap and try this!
