Orville Redenbacher’s Secret: Popcorn Will Kill You

A review of movie theater concession food has revealed that while unsalted, plain popcorn is a mostly healthy snack, movie theater popcorn is really quite terrible for you. (Surprise!) A tub of regal cinemas popcorn, which, like most theaters, cooks its popcorn in vegetable oil, has 60 grams of saturated fat, or three times more than you should consume in an entire day.

As an alternative, Healthcare Outsider recommends opting for the jumbo soda and box of junior mints next time you head to a film. That can’t be all that bad for you… can it? [NYT]
