People do not eat these because they taste good, they eat these because they're less than $0.20 a pack.

True, and many college students and low-income families survive on these.

Thank goodness that the authors of this BS don't write for the serious media. If they were questioned in court about their scientific knowledge of food in relation to adverse health issues then they would be laughed out of court. Their propaganda is based on quarter truths that get massaged to convey an erroneous and scare-mongering conclusion. It's true, a little knowledge is exceedingly dangerous!

I am sure whoever wrote the above has a degree in spelling as well as an opinion...That being said those noodles have no nutritional value, therefore drinking a glass of warm water does as much good. Save your 20 cents.

Wow learn how to spell to make it more believable at least!

Styrofoam is NOT an ingredient of the noodle. The container, instant noodles are served/sold in, are made of this material.

Worthy of consideration!

I cannot take an article seriously that has so many grammatical errors. It leads me to believe that it is hot air from a non-professional with little or no medical knowledge. Styrofoam is the package, not the noodles. It does have way too much sodium and they are just empty carbohydrates, but then I mix peas and carrots in mine and use low sodium broth instead of the flavor package.

I did read a legitimate article on these ramen noodles done by a British University & they are coated in a waxy substance for preservative matters. Longer shelf life.

If something that is quick to make, fills you up and kids love BUT it costs R4.00 (I'm estimating) you cant seriously believe that it has any nutritious value at all, i eat them when there is no food in the house. But when i open the packet i get ready for an instant head ache and a blotted feeling. In reality if its not expensive its not healthy!

Satyros said...

Yup! and they're not as bad as that article claims. Much better than fat loaded burgers. I add seaweed to mine and shitake mushrooms.

It wonderfully worked for me;
At first I was a bit skeptical about this Natural cure for herpes and other similar medicines. Discovering people with similar symptoms who are treated and cured by Dr Utu both on medias and in social medias on daily basis motivated me, so I contacted him for help!
At first, I was a bit curious about this possible cure, but! I don't want to be left out without giving it a trial, so I contacted him as well.
Some hours later he replied me, then he asked me some private questions, of which I honestly answered, I told him how I have lived and suffered with this disease and how much I will do anything to get rid of it. He assured me of total cure after taking his herbal medicines. It was even more easier than I expected. Also I never even imagined to get my parcels within five working days, but to my greatest surprise my parcels was brought to my doorstep by the end of the second day. I collected the parcel which I followed all the instructions as he had directed. Just as I was told "four weeks medication " my medicine finished in four weeks exactly. From week one of my medication I started noticing positive change in health. and in week two I could tell much more differences and I was so eager to even testify of life again in me.
I patiently continue medication till the last bottle which was then week four. I was the first person the next day in the clinic for lab test. Not even a particle of herpes was found in my system when I collected my result. Knowing I'm now herpes negative at this point I proceeded to inform my doctor, he doubted me, that day he gave me a month appointment to be closely monitored. It's my health so I waited more six Months and again i went for 'lab test' in a different clinical lab.
This time the result was still the same as the previous one. Also since this year I have been living my normal life and am still herpes free no symptoms and even till now no cold sore or outbreak. As a result of this herbal cure in my life and my family at large, I can boast of doctors today who through me, now uses African Traditional Roots and Herbs to TREAT AND CURE patients that are, CANCERS, HERPES, PARALYSIS, and HIV successfully today. Many are still ignorant of this I know.
Contact Dr Utu directly today on; "drutuherbalcure@gmail.com" to free yourself from emotional stress and become healthy again
