Whenever I’m sick or looking for a quick/cheap bite I always make myself some ramen noodles. Although the salty soup is one of my favorite things ever, after reading this article you will agree with me “No soup for you!”
Ramen is a highly processed noodle that is most popular in China and other parts of Asia. But with the recent rise in heart disease and obese adults, especially in South Korea (The largest consumer of processed noodles), many people are starting to look at things a bit differently.
Dr. Hyun Joon Shin, a clinical cardiology fellow at Baylor University Medical Center, recently investigated the matter to see if there was a link between the two.
What he found in his research is SICKENING! The study determined that eating processed noodles more than two times a week increases the chances of developing metabolic syndrome.
According to the National Institutes of Health, metabolic syndrome is a group of factors that raise your risk for cardiovascular issues, diabetes, stroke, and even death.
The big thing to note here is that metabolic syndrome may soon replace smoking as the leading risk factor for heart disease.
