is popcorn unhealthy?

ok, we're talking about popcorn made with very little oil here. popcorn swimming in oil and butter is obviously unhealthy.

i keep hearing people saying different things, so i might as well ask here.

?

I dunno but there's this guy I work with who makes a bag of microwave butter popcorn at 10am every single day and eats it every single day.

microwave popcorn are definitely unhealthy. the fat used is extremely dangerous.

I think air popped popcorn or popcorn made with just a bit of oil is considered fairly healthy. Of course if you eat scads of it, it isn't so healthy.

My oldest brother is a total health nut but every now and then he will eat popcorn that way

Know the buttery kind is bad for you but it still tastes so good

I would definitely stay away from the microwave stuff!

I remember CNN or 60 Minutes interviewing a former employee at 3M (I think) about the packaging and the amount of chemicals that went into them.

Air-popped with a touch of salt on the other hand...

I have an air popper so that's what I use if I want popcorn, that way I control what goes on top of it.
