Doctors used a pill-sized camera to see what happens to ramen when it hits your gut. After 2 hours, the noodles aren’t digested.
This is a strain on your system because the longer the digestive time, the more the stomach is exposed to the noodles’ toxic preservative TBHQ. TBHQ is a petroleum by-product. It’s found in varnish, pesticides, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
The biggest risk of cheap, instant ramen? Metabolic syndrome which is a cluster of conditions of high blood pressure and sugar, excess body fat around the waist and excess cholesterol leading to heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
The 1900 mg of sodium in ramen is enough to create problems alone. The MSG is associated with nerve damage and is implicated in Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Lou Gehrig’s disease.
