Scientists Reveal Ramen Noodles Cause Heart Disease, Stroke & Metabolic Syndrome

Post by AlleyRose on Mon Sep 15, 2014 6:10 am

Will you continue to feed to your kids Ramen Noodles?
The health benefits of eating processed ramen noodles are self-evident to many people, although there will always be those who deny the dangers of eating them. How bad can they be? Well in fact they can be pretty bad! Researchers from Baylor University and Harvard have found that the noodles increase people’s risk of metabolic changes linked to heart disease and strokes. Ramen noodles contain Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), which is a by-product of the petroleum industry and food additive which is often used to preserve cheap processed foods. This chemical is neither digestible or beneficial to your body in any way. In a recent study in the Journal of Nutrition, researchers found that women in South Korea who consumed a high amount of the pre-cooked dried noodles were more likely to have “metabolic syndrome” this did not change with any amount of exercise or by other food they ate. People with metabolic syndrome generally have high blood pressure or high blood sugar levels and have an increased risk of a stroke, heart disease and diabetes. “Although instant noodle is a convenient and delicious food, there could be an increased risk for metabolic syndrome given [the food's] high sodium, unhealthy saturated fat and glycemic loads,” said study co-author Hyun Shin, a doctoral candidate at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. Shin and his researchers analyzed the health and diet of approximately 11,000 adults in South Korea aged between 19 to 64. The participants were asked to report what they ate and the researchers categorized each participant’s diet as either traditional healthy food or fast food, they also looked at how many times weekly they ate instant noodles. The study was focused on individuals in South Korea, due to the fact that the country has the highest per-capita number of instant noodle consumers in the world. It has also come to light that over recent years, health problems such as heart disease and obesity have been on the rise. Unfortunately the findings are quite relevant to consumers in the United States which is ranked 6th globally in instant noodle sales, according to the World Instant Noodles Association, which found that the United States accounted for 4,300 billion units sold in 2013 they were just behind Japan, China, India, Indonesia and Vietnam and one spot above South Korea.
Other Food Products Containing TBHQ:
• McDonalds chicken nuggets and french fries
• CHEEZ-IT Crackers made by Kellogg’s
• KFC beans and fried chicken
• Wheat Thins
• Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts
• Microwave popcorn
• Wrigley’s gum
• Little Debbies nutty bars and some M&M products
• Keebler Club crackers
• Many Kellogg’s products
• Taco bell beans and some taco shells
• Teddy Grahams
• Red Barron frozen pizza
• Keebler Cookies
• Butterfinger chocolate and Reese’s Peanut butter cups
• Nestle Crunch
• Little Debbie
• Homestyle Peanut butter cookies
• Some forms of soymilk
• Different breads cereals and crackers could contain TBHQ
• Crisco oil
• Some pet foods
• Many cosmetic products and baby products 
• Some hair dyes lipsticks and eyeshadows

Due to the amount of processed foods that contain TBHQ we are unable to list them all. People are realizing quickly that all processed food in general, have far too many problems to be considered safe. Our regulatory agencies are not acting responsibly and are side stepping the problems and instead of removing these toxins from the food supply, they claim that there are safe levels that can be consumed. Who knew that poison could be consumed in safe levels!
A gastrointestinal specialist has conducted an experiment with a time lapse video inside the stomach, comparing both fresh and preserved ramen noodles. After two hours of digestion, the results were staggering so before you chow down on your next bowl of processed Ramen Noodles you may want to watch the video below.
