We talked about this in the morning show. I saw stuff beginning to move on our wires yesterday, but when I saw the Today Show landed the interview with the man who got this "popcorn lung".. it made perfect sense to do more with the story.
I mean, pretty much everyone eats microwave popcorn, right??
So-- here is the skinny on the story.
First, for those of us who don't have a medical degree. This is a great Associated Press writeup that details how the doctor made the connection..
And this has more on the techical side:
Okay.. have you heard of the Seattle treesweater gal? ((http://erika.fisherking.org/?page_id=271))
WE NOW HAVE ONE OF OUR OWN!!
Angie in Albany knitted this treesweater and frankly, I think this is one of the cutest, most fun ideas I've heard of since those little plastic horses that get hitched to the old horse rings in downtown ((http://www.horseproject.net/)).
I love it here. I really do.
