This is what happens inside the gut after eating processed ramen.

Children and adults love to snack on noodles.  However, not all noodles are created the same.

Dr. Braden Kuo of Massachusetts General Hospital’s experiment suggests a big difference between eating processed and fresh ramen noodles.

To show what happens inside the digestive tract after eating processed ramen, Dr. Kuo used a capsule-size camera.  Click the video.

Food that stays for a long time inside the stomach affects nutrient absorption and because the noodles contain no nutrients but additives (msg, etc.) and the toxic preservative known as tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ),  it is easy to assume that eating processed ramen may have an adverse effect on health over time.

According to the the FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives, TBHQ is safe for human consumption within 0-0.5 mg/kg. of body weight.
