A recent study links instant noodles to heart attack and diabetes. Hyun Joon Shin, one of the researchers of the study, said that:
While instant noodle intake is great in Asian communities, the association between instant noodle consumption and metabolic syndrome has not been widely studied.- Hyun Joon Shin
South Korea was also chosen as, in recent years, many South Koreans have had to deal with health issues such as obesity and heart disease.
The study involved instant ramen and instant noodles consumers in South Korea, as the country has the highest per-capita number of instant noodle consumers in the world.
A recent study published in Journal of Nutrition, found that consuming instant noodles may increase an individual’s risk of developing cardiometabolic syndrome. Cardiometabolic syndrome consequently increases the risk for severe cardiovascular disease and stroke more often in women than men.
The findings of a recent study might hurt the “instant” loving generation, as researchers and scientists are warning consumers that instant noodles may cost consumers lives.
My hope is that this study can lay a foundation for future research about the health effects of instant noodle consumption,- Hyun Joon Shin
Hyun added hoping that people become more aware of the risks involved in consuming the food they usually eat.
Some instant noodles come in styrofoam, which contains bisphenol A (BPA). BPA has been known to interfere with hormonal functions, specifically estrogen. Instant noodles are also high in saturated fat, which can lead to heart problems.
The research findings said the primary cause of the health risk is the container in which some instant noodles come in.
Nutritionists considered instant ramen as unhealthy because it is high in saturated fat and salt and, it contains monosodium glutamate (MSG) and tert-Butylhydroquinone (TBHQ). TBHQ is a petroleum byproduct and preservative.
According to research, eating instant ramen twice or more a week, can lead to cardiometabolic syndrome, but the research clarified that it’s not necessarily due to the noodles or other ingredients added.
