Read this about Ramen noodles and find out what your kids are eating. Would you continue giving them these noodles after going through this?
Noodle fans will have a hard time accepting the truth about these noodles. They are quite harmful to everyone’s health. Noodles have been connected to the risk of developing metabolic changes associated with heart disease and stroke.
Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ) is commonly found in cheap processed noodles. It is a by-product which is used in food and petroleum industries.
TBHQ is a chemical that offers nothing beneficial, but only harmful to your body. It is also not digestible. According to research published in the Journal of Nutrition, consumption of the chemical Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone for extended period of time can cause metabolic syndrome. This damage is claimed to be permanent and no amount of exercise or changes in diet or consumption of healthy food can reverse this damage. This kind of diet is common among South Korean women.
Those who have metabolic syndrome usually become more vulnerable, with enhanced risk of various diseases including:
– Heart disease
– Increased blood glucose levels
– High blood pressure
Hyun Shin is a doctoral candidate at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. According to him, the only good thing about noodles is that they are delicious. But everything else about noodles is unhealthy:
– Glycemic loads
– High sodium content
– Unhealthy saturated fats
He conducted health based research on over 11,000 people from South Korea in the age group 19-64. During the study, he asked the subjects to list everything they regularly ate more recently. They also had to report the number of times they consumed noodles in a week.
Instant noodles are most widely consumed in South Korea (on per capita basis) compared to any other country. Americans are at the number 6 spot (World Instant Noodles Association report). The other top countries in the list are Japan, Vietnam, India and China.
