Will eating instant noodles twice a week cause some effects?

Will eating instant noodles twice a week cause some effects?

Yes- it depends on:: Everything we eat affects our health. Instant noodles are mostly carbs; a high-carb diet raises blood sugar, increases obesity, causes inflammation etc.Most instant noodles are wheat ; thus have gluten, which adversely affects many people (but you could have rice or buckwheat noodles without gluten). Most have msg as a flavor-enhancer which may be toxic- see http://bit.Ly/1cj9f5f

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

Are instant noodles bad for you?

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. Most instant noodles are high in fat and salt, and contain msg flavor enhancer (similar to eating potato chips with added msg). 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 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?

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

Can eating lots of dairy products like milk and yogurt give more chances of acne?

I heard that 30% of waste is excreted from your skin. So does eating bad with greasy food give you acne?

I heard that 30% of waste is excreted from your skin. So does eating bad with greasy food give you acne?

Let's talk...: The claim that 30% of waste is excreted through your skin is bunk. The one waste product that you lose through your skin is urea and this loss is significant only if you sweat; the stuff is also famously nontoxic. There's actually a consistency rare among scientific studies that diet doesn't affect acne -- i was surprised too. You're an adult and can read critically. Thanks for asking. ...Read more

Can you give me suggestions with my acne and blemishes?

Manage them: Acne cannot be cured. You must manage it until it remits on its own. It is unrelated to hygiene or lifestyle and only marginally to diet. No 'pop' cure works. Anyone telling you otherwise is lying. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add a prescription-strength rx. ...Read more

Can you give me suggestions for my acne, how is roaccutane?

Watch 4 side effects: Isotretinoin decreases the size and activity of the sebaceous glands in the skin, which reduces the amount of sebum that is produced. This stops the glands becoming blocked, and means bacteria are less likely to thrive. It also reduces the inflammation in the skin.
Isotretinoin can have serious side effects and its use must be supervised by a dermatologist. ...Read more

Scientific Rx: All acne can be managed. Start with topical benzoyl peroxide, if this fails after two weeks your physician may add topical Clindamycin and/or a topical retinoic acid derivative. If this is not enough, a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day clears most guys. Deratologists have the big guns. Good luck. ...Read more

Could radiation therapy be giving me acne?

Could radiation therapy be giving me acne?

Yes: We do see an acne type rash in the treatment area at times. More commonly its just a sunburn effect. However check to see if you are on Erbitux which is known to cause a acne rash all over. Sometimes this is severe and needs antibiotics. If its just radiation, we have creams that help and washing with an antibacterial cleanser is very useful. After the radiation these skin changes should clear. ...Read more
