Eating Healthy, Microwave Popcorn And PFAs

It probably won’t surprise too many people that the food choices we make can greatly affect our health. Researchers are looking into the subject of PFAs (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances).

There are thousands of these synthetic chemicals and they take a very long time to break down in the environment. They also take years for your body to break them down.

People who eat more home-cooked meals have much lower levels of these hormone-disrupting chemicals in their blood. Meanwhile, microwave popcorn is one of the worst offenders when it comes to PFAs.
