Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans.

The healthiest way is to air pop the corn. Add butter and salt and enjoy. We like ours with

Nutritional Yeast Flakes , really don't go freaking out until you try it. My kids wipe the sides of the bowl and lick this stuff off their fingers. It's really savory and yummy.

Organic Popcorn is best. It will not have the pesticide residues or other toxic residues commonly found on conventionally grown corn, and it will not have been genetically engineered.
