Popcorn Machine Smoking at the Zoo

I spent years popping 2 grocery bags full of popcorn (no oil) for the SB Zoo elephants each week, when Suzie was still alive. They were able to pick each piece up individually (amazing), and it helped them keep their weight down while still being active. They loved it. The elephant keepers approved. Eventually, the local birds caught on, and we had to do it inside. Children and guests enjoyed it while it was outside. Popcorn is a good snack, although a surgeon friend calls it the tiny scissors of the intestines. Roughage.

Popcorn Machine Smoking at the Zoo

Popcorn has come up online again and again, in recent years, as a food to avoid. Mainly because people tend to eat it slathered butter or else it has been prepared to contain a ton of nasty chemicals. "And the popcorn’s hull is a rich source of the antioxidant polyphenols, known to prevent damage to cells. But popcorn consumption does have a few inherent risks, such as: Serious allergic reactions that some people experience A choking hazard, especially to children age three or younger, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics The risk of gastrointestinal problems for those with health conditions that require them to follow a low-residue or low-fiber diet But the two most common popcorn health risks are both related to the way that most popcorn today is prepared: Slathered after cooking in unhealthy toppings Cooked in store-bought microwavable popcorn bags"

Popcorn Machine Smoking at the Zoo

Popcorn is one of the leading causes of mortality in zoo animals. It is indigestible for many creatures, never a part of their natural diet, and the fat-sugar-salt is as irresistible to them as it seems to be to humans. It clogs them up. Since some people insist on throwing it over the moats and into cages to get a reaction from the animals, many zoos have discontinued selling it.
