A common dinner, or on the go- lunch, a pack of ramen noodles is a life-saver for people with a lot of obligations and no time for cooking. Noodles are most certainly not nutritional or healthy, but you definitely don’t consider them dangerous for your health.
Nonetheless, Dr. Braden Kuo conducted a try out and after you get familiar with the facts, you might not enjoy noodles you used to before.
With the assistance of a small camera, he watched what was going on in the digestive tract and stomach after eating ramen noodles, also known as instant noodles. What takes place will shock you!
Ramen Noodles Didn’t Dissolve Even After Hours of Digestion
In the footage you can watch what happens with the ramen noodles in the stomach. After a couple of hours, the noodles stay intact, which is a reason for concern for numerous reasons.
For starters, the digestive system is forced to make an unusually big attempt and to work for hours to dissolve the noodles.
The nutrient absorption is also impacted when the food is stuck in the digestive tract for a prolonged time period. But, ramen noodles not even slightly nutritious, still they are packed with additives, toxic preservative (TBHQ) tertiary butyl hydroquinone being one of them.
This additive stays in the stomach along with the noodles, and the manner it impacts your health is unknown yet.
Five Grams of TBHQ are Fatal
TBHQ is normally considered antioxidant, but it is a synthetic chemical that has antioxidant powers. This chemical prolongs the shelf life of processed foods by stopping the oxidation of oils and fats. It is an ingredient which is generally used in most of the processed foods.
Moreover, it can also be found in pesticide products, perfumes, cosmetics, varnishes and, lacquers.
Exposure to 1 gram of TBHQ can cause:
- Vomiting and nausea
- Sense of suffocation
The body is able to remove TBHQ, since it is not a persistent toxin, but in case of eating instant noodles, the human body is exposed to this substance for an extensive time period. Health conditions connected to THHQ exposure, based on animal studies are:
- Affect the liver
- Positive mutation results
- Causes biochemical changes
- Affect the reproductive system
Conclusively, eating processed foods causes chronic inflammation and insulin resistance, that are found to be the culprits for most severe of diseases.
