Case in point: The ultimate healthy snack may be your go-to movie-watching munchie: popcorn.

Turns out popcorn kernels contain more of the healthy antioxidant substances called polyphenols than fruits and vegetables, according to new research presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society.
