A first-of-its-kind experiment made use of a pill-sized camera and some willing subjects to see the results of consuming the popular instant noodle meal. Dr. Branden Kuo of Massachusetts General Hospital found that even after two hours, ramen noodles stay relatively intact inside the stomach. In comparison, fresh homemade ramen noodles break down much quickly.
From putting a strain on your digestive system, to exposing your body to the scary additives (including the toxic preservative tertiary-butyl hydroquinone) that are present in instant noodles, this video unleashes a host of health concerns.
Although nothing conclusive has come out of this small-scale study yet, what we see is enough to convince us to eat instant noodle at a much, much lower frequency than we do now.
