    Danger in Eating Same Foods Every Day (Oatmeal, Egg Whites)

    Hey guys and gals,

    I have been eating pasteurized egg whites and oatmeal every day for the past decade. It has allowed me to keep a significant amount of muscle mass with only maintenance workouts.

    I read a story in the newspaper about a guy who ate popcorn every day and now he has this disease "popcorn lung". Is there any danger in eating egg whites and oatmeal every day?

    Thanks,
    Fitnessman

    If I remembered right, the popcorn has something called diacetyl (SP?) that are found in microwave butter-popcorn. This caused the "popcorn lungs."

    From what I know, eating eggs and oatmeals everyday will not do the body harm. I haven't heard of a case where something like that happened. If you feel you must, read the ingredients and do research on each of the ingredients. Let it be known though, that anything in excess is bad for you. This dude ate bags of popcorn twice daily. Something that I hope you don’t do with oatmeal and eggs. I think if you just keep moderation in mind with your eggs and oatmeal, you should be fine.

    and it wasn't that he ate that much diacetyl, it was that he made and inhaled at least 3 bags worth every day. he's the only known case of popcorn lung who didn't work in a popcorn factory.

    oddly enough, diacetyl is also formed in beer, if the beer gets a little too warm. however the yeast will remove this diacetyl if you don't rush the beer making process.
    its considered a nuisance to home brewers.
