Is popcorn the new health food?

A new study shows popcorn can provide protection from cancer and heart disease. 

Seems the hulls from the popcorn seeds – the annoying part that sticks in your teeth/gums contain high levels of antioxidants, namely polyphenols.  These chemicals are great at disease fighting.  It is also a good source of fiber but remember limit the salt and avoid the greasy butter.

Happy New Year to all my popcorn-loving friends.
