Popcorn causes Alzheimer’s disease?

Alzheimer, News from the web:

Diacetyl, used to produce that buttery flavor in, among other foods, microwavable popcorn, may be a cause for Alzheimer’s disease.

University of Minnesota drug-design expert Robert Vince, PhD, and colleagues found that diacetyl causes brain proteins to misfold into the Alzheimer’s-linked form called beta amyloid. Vince’s team also found that diacetyl has an architecture similar to a substance that makes beta-amyloid proteins clump together in the brain — clumping being a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.

Although other experts claim that popcorn itself can be considered a healthy food, putting the butter on it and shaking your salt pot to heavily will cancel out any nutritional benefits.
