This article I spotted at TreeHugger .com makes a good case for why artificial foods are bad news. It seems that the workers who create the artificial flavoring in buttered popcorn are coming down with "bronchiolitis obliterans, a disease that causes the smaller bronchi to be filled up with masses of fibrous tissue." [TreeHugger.com]. Many people are blaming the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for not doing anything. Apparently this is the kind of disease that can kill quickly. But if this is what is happening to the people that make buttered popcorn, what is happening to the people who eat it?
