Can a microwaveable popcorn cause cancer? How true? I am a popcorn lover, maybe because, I am already eating it while I'm still in my mom's tummy. She said when she was pregnant, after a long day at work she will just throw a bag of popcorn in the microwave and finish the whole bag with a can of coke and that will make her day. One day she gave me this terrible news (how true im still finding the answer) she said that her friend told her that microwaveable popcorn can cause cancer, according to some reseach, the preservative on the bag of popcorn contain some chemicals that can cause cancer.
How true is this?
