Are Instant Noodles Bad For You
Ok, if seldom eaten: Instant noodles are not good for a person who has access to other healthier foods.

A few "healthier" instant noodles have less fat, less salt, and no msg; but the "healthier" noodles are hard to find in stores. It is better to eat noodles without using the flavor packet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im worried as i eat fattis and monis instant noodles atleast once every 5 days, can it cause cancer or is very bad for me?
Instant noodles: can contain a lot of sodium and other chemicals. So, try to eat them sparingly rather than every 5 days. A regular diet of them is not good for overall health and by themselves they don't cause cancer. Stick w/fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, etc. It takes more time and work but it's worth it. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I'm addicted to instant noodles (the noodles you put in hot water and add favour and spices above).. Is it so unhealthy and dangerous as some says?
Not really addiction: Many people really like a particular food and may overindulge in it, but that doesn't make it an "addiction," which implies both loss of control and it doing far more harm than good. They have way too much salt and are pure starch, so moderation is better for your health. Over time, it can lead to obesity, diabetes and hypertension. Talk to a nutritionist about moderating it. ...Read more

Not how it works: Your diet as a whole has to be planned. There is room for a small percentage of carbohydrate calories in a daily diet.

I doubt it: In decades of looking over such issues, i have never seen any data suggenting a noodle fetish would affect fetal development.As a simple food source, it has no specific toxic element to trigger such a change.

Yes: Noodles are fine, when part of a reasonable and balanced diet. The store bought types often have a lot of salt that won't affect the baby, but could cause your legs to swell a bit for a day or so. "brown" rice/wheat/noodles are better for women with gestational diabetes because they won't increase the blood sugar as much as white flours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
