Do you know what the easiest way to make 7 million dollars is? It's to spend years shoveling fistfuls of microwaveable popcorn down your throat, develop a lung condition and sue the company that makes the popcorn for not putting a warning label on their bags.

In the future I'm just going to be sucking protein chains and amino acid sludge through an IV I have attached to my beer helmet. Though I'm sure the plastic in it will cause Cancer. So now that microwaveable popcorn is no longer safe to eat, shall we add it to our list of most dangerous foods?

Here are five of the most dangerous foods in the world.
