The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Wayne Watson and people who suffer from Diacetyl Side Effects. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
As CBS News published on September 20th, 2012, jurors awarded Colorado man Wayne Watson $7 million in damages as he developed "popcorn lung" after eating two bags daily for 10 years, being exposed to Diacetyl (case no. 1:2008cv00091, Colorado District Court). Diacetyl is a chemical found in a variety of foods and beverages like beer, wine, and butterscotch flavoring and, most commonly, used for the butter flavoring in microwave popcorn. In the lawsuit, Watson claims he suffered a rare lung disease caused by inhaling Diacetyl vapors from microwave popcorn bags.
According to a new study, published on June 25th, 2012 in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology, chronic exposure to Diacetyl may contribute to protein clumping in the brain, which has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, as reported by the National Safety Council.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe adverse events from Diacetyl, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Diacetyl remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
In August 2010, a jury in Cook County Ill Circuit Court awarded $30.4 million to a chemical-flavoring plant worker disabled by exposure to Diacetyl (case no. 2006-L-012105).
