Dr. O’s Tips: Pop popcorn from scratch instead of buying microwave brands

Microwave popcorn bags are lined with PFOA, which is part of a group of chemicals known to disrupt the body’s hormonal balance. It is the same toxin used in teflon pots and pans and the EPA lists this substance as a carcinogen.

Next time, try popping your popcorn in a pot with coconut oil and Himalayan salt for a healthy snack. It only takes two more minutes than the microwave varieties and doesn’t contain any of the harmful additives.

Here is a recipe for popping your popcorn in coconut oil with some fun and unique flavoring ideas: Eat Well: Popcorn in Coconut Oil
