My Instant Noodles
August 5, 2016 12:51am CST
Instant noodles are one of the world’s most popular foods. Me and my children love to eat instant or cup noodles. I really love that new creamy cup noodles. They’re cheap, they’re easy to make, and they are delicious, with so many different flavors available. But did you know that these noodles can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke? I was surprised too when I got to read this. Harvard School of Public Health conducted a research regarding this noodles. It was found that people who eat noodles regularly have an increased risk of developing “metabolic syndrome.” This happened regardless if the person exercised or ate an otherwise balanced diet. Metabolic Syndrome includes the following health problems: High blood pressure,high blood sugar, and increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Do you love to eat noodles now?

No. When I was an elementary student, one of our teachers discourage us from eating instant noodles. She told us those are called buffer food. Food that can make us feel full but actually doesn't have any health benefits to our body.
