I've noticed, for years, that the kids I knew who ate huge quantities of mac n cheese ALL had learning disabilities. :? So, I didn't let DD even try it till recently. (she loves it now, btw)

I thought - it's completely illogicl to think the two related, but I'll just play it safe.

Then, today, I found this story. I usually don't pay attention to these sorts of stories, but this one strikes a chord

Yeah, it's called the "carrot theory". :mrgreen: But WEIRD! Of course we should've all known that cheese powder isn't "healthy" anyway!! And i could swear that my lungs have been compromised by microwave popcorn. It does seem near impossible to get to the bottom of causes and your theory (aka "superstition") is as good as any. We lived on the stuff and i never noticed any learning disabilities but we may just have good genes. :ugeek:

"we eat it all the time and we're fine!" ;)

Maybe without it you would have been the next einstein!

It's hard to know how good our brains MIGHT have been :ugeek: :ugeek:

SIS, there IS a thing called "pocorn" lung and it can be fatal! We had my ds checked because he ate popcorn every single night for the longest time.

As for that powder cheese.. Its nasty!

We've never eaten it in huge quantities, but this is good to know. We already have more than our share of learning disabilities in this family. My kids we already at a disadvantage from conception.
