It’s a common college dorm staple that no doubt, your teenagers have consumed in an attempt to make themselves dinner. It’s an addictively salty treat that’s been noted as a standard “lazy day meal.”

What many people don’t know is that, you’re not just being lazy when you count this soup as dinner, you’re also hurting yourself!

The infamous ramen noodle has been studied recently, and has been shown to make metabolic changes in both adults and young adults. These changes have been linked to heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Within the friendly looking soup containers, there is a poisonous toxin called Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), which is used to preserve cheap, processed “foods.”

The main ingredients in ramen noodles are wheat flour, palm oil, sugar and salt… yumm, healthy, and that’s just in the noodles! How about we top it off with a packet of artificial flavoring and color as well? The flavor packets contain more powdered salt, monosodium glutamate, seasoning and sugar.

You already know the horrible effects of artificial flavors and colors, so the high sodium content and processed wheat is simply the cherry on top of this delicious bowl of poison!

This translates into over 2700mg of sodium…ouch! 

They may be convenient, and they may satisfy your craving for salt, but they are an absolute no-no when it comes to maintaining a healthy, functioning body and heart!

A study conducted in South Korea (the highest per capita number of instant noodle consumers in the world) illustrated that in 11, 000 people, those who ate more instant noodles had a higher risk of metabolic syndrome, diabetes and stroke.

This doesn’t mean that the information isn’t relevant to Americans! Listen up!

These findings apply directly to the US population because believe it or not the US ranks 6th globally in instant noodle sales (4,300 Billion units sold in 2013).

Keep a close eye on the snacks your children brings home and especially the ones they are eating away at college!
