Outrage: Fake Butter Flavoring May Cause Alzheimer's Disease
"Diacetyl, a flavoring used to produce the buttery flavor and aroma in some processed food may be linked to Alzheimer`s disease, U.S. researchers say.
The study, published in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology, found diacetyl increased the level of beta-amyloid clumping. In addition, the study found at real-world occupational exposure levels, diacetyl also enhanced beta-amyloid`s toxic effects on nerve cells growing in the laboratory."
These killjoy scientists should focus on doing something useful, like discovering how to open a CD case in under five minutes.
Nothing tops of a good meal of a hamburger and fries, quite like a bag of microwave popcorn.
I love fake butter flavoring and I`m not going to stop eating microwave popcorn and other snacks that contain the heavenly ingredient.
I don`t mind if I get Alzheimer`s disease, as long as I remember where I put my bag of popcorn.
