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?

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
