Oddly enough-pcb's (polychlorinated biphenols) are rated as carcinogens. There are 238 kinds. Only a few were linked to cancer but EPA classes them all as carcinogens. The PCB's dumped by GE are among the most harmless, though the news makes them sound like the end of the planet. People from Love Canal and the GE plant in Waterford NY exposed to large amounts of PCB's actually have a lower rate of various cancers than the surrounding community. Some PCB's may likewise be a cancer preventative or cure.

The problem isn't the popcorn fumes..... it was from the artificial butter flavoring that was being used.
