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!

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!
