Is Burnt Popcorn Bad for You?

According to the National Cancer Institute, foods that have been heated past 248 degrees Fahrenheit, such as burned popcorn, may pose a health concern due to the production of acrylamide, which may be carcinogenic. Inhaling charred popcorn smoke may also represent a health danger.

Despite the fact that human studies are incomplete as of 2014, the World Health Organization has categorised acrylamide in food as a major concern and stresses the need for additional study on the dangers of acrylamide in the diet. Smoke is classified as fine particles by the EPA, which are more likely to aggravate asthma or cause other respiratory ailments.
