All we Asians love it. We tend to eat too much of it. We know we shouldn’t eat it. But we all still do. We just can’t help it.
I love ramen noodles, but after watching this video of an experiment done comparing how the human stomach processes ramen noodles vs. Gatorade, it makes you think twice about grabbing those ramen noodles from the cupboard. Think twice folks. Ramen noodles are just oh so bad.
Most of the time, we hear about avoiding processed foods because they’ll make us fat. But a new video of what happens in your body when you eat Top Ramen and Gatorade vs. homemade noodles and drinks gives us a whole new reason to avoid it: We can’t even digest it properly.
TEDxManhattan 2011 Fellow Stefani Bardin’s video, below, shows what happens in your body when you eat processed foods vs. homemade versions of similar foods, using a tiny “M2A” (that stands for Mouth to Anus, and it’s trademarked, mind you) LED/camera capsule. The project looks at two subjects eating two similar meals: one composed of processed foods (gatorade, ramen, and gummi bears); the other of homemade versions (hibiscus drink, homemade broth with noodles and gummi bears made of juice). What happens to the foods is drastically different; possibly because, as Bardin puts it, Top Ramen is made to survive armageddon, while homemade noodles are made to be eaten. Source: Huffington Post
