Symptoms of popcorn lung disease
Popcorn lung, or bronchiolitis obliterans, results from exposure to Diacetyl, the chemical used in butter flavoring in microwave popcorn and other food products. People affected by the toxicity of this chemical have developed shortness of breath, hardening of the lung tissue, and other serious respiratory symptoms. The damage cannot be reversed by eliminating the exposure to Diacetyl. The most serious cases of popcorn lung are life threatening and require individuals to undergo a lung transplant.
