You have probably heard of popcorn lung? Bronchiolitis, also popularly known as popcorn lung, is a common lung infection in young children and infants. It causes inflammation and congestion in the small airways (bronchioles) of the lung. It is almost always caused by a virus. It was however made more famous as popcorn lung after workers who had worked in a popcorn factory contracted bronchiolitis after inhaling high amounts of diacetyl for a long period of time. In that instance, diacetyl was used to achieve the buttery flavour we reach to microwave popcorn for.
Although numerous tests have been made which have revealed that even vapers that vape daily or even constantly, will not be exposed to nearly the same amount of diacetyl as the workers in the popcorn factory, it is still a harmful substance. In any case, our advice is to avoid diacetyl and be conscious of the potential health implications associated with it.
