Is "Kettle Corn Kidney" some sort of new diabetes related disease out of the Midwest USA?

Popcorn Barbara, Popcorn Dave
Ate a lot of popcorn in his man-cave
With extra butter
Made their hearts flutter

And he retched and he coughed and he hacked up
Called in their lawyers for backup
Recall that song America sung?
Looks like Popcorn lung

a douche bag lawyer neighbor of mine years ago won 6 figures from a golf course. he liked to suck on his golf tees as he made his way around the golf course. he got sick and won his case arguing the golf course didn't list the pesticides it used as a warning to him not to suck golf tees.

This golf course, did it have a gopher problem and a scruffy-looking assistant groudskeeper who had some story about caddying for the Dalai Lama?

"In August 2011, the couple sued defendants Bush Boake Allen, Inc. and International Flavors & Fragrances, claiming that David Stults developed "popcorn lung" after eating microwave popcorn daily for nearly 20 years."

I think I found your problem you morans...

My cousin lost his ability to have children after coming down with a case of pickle pecker.  Let me tell you, you've never seen the kinds of evil corporate America gets away with until you've crossed big pickle.

Wait. I thought it took chronic exposure to high concentrations of aerosolized Diactyl for a long period of time to develop "Popcorn Worker's Lung"

The more likely answer is this guy had a devastating infection or autoimmune response. Sadly, the only thing that will save someone with BPO is a lung transplant.

Got a package of pistachios the other day. The warning on the back (in addition to "contains tree nuts") said "Caution: remove shells before eating". I chuckled until I realized that was probably only on there because someone had sued.

The sad part is there is no better butter flavor ingredient than diacetyl. Acetyl methyl carbinol and acetyl propionyl really don't come close.

Technically, it's a seed, not a nut.

He huffed microwave popcorn for twenty years. How can he expect no repercussions? If I burned my finger every time I made popcorn, could I sue for the corn that grows there? Nowhere on the package does it say to snort the fumes, yet he did it anyway. The maker of the popcorn should sue for the trauma caused to the popcorn.

up until the late 1990s the stovetop packages of Jiffy Pop Popcorn contained chemicals that when released, if you tore the foil open before popping the popcorn and cooking off the gas, would give you amnesia.
