#1 Postby wannalift » Fri Feb 24, 2006 12:02 pm

is too much popcorn bad for you? my roomate has a movie theater popcorn machine and i tend to eat popcorn 5 or more days a week. its cooked in canola oil and sometimes canola with some coconut oil. no seasoning, just a little salt. what could happen from eating too much popcorn?

I hear that it can actually be tough on the digestive system. I know of someone who was "opened up" and they found a bunch of kernels stuck somewhere. Another person I know who's colon burst open can't eat them anymore.

I think they should be an occasional treat and not a diet staple. But maybe some people are OK with them.

Just a personal anecdote:
Back in the 70's, I tried a lot of different things. One was a fast using enemas. I hadn't had popcorn for at least 2 weeks prior, but hulls were coming out when I used the enemas!
