10 Processed Foods to Avoid Like the Plague

Processed foods are a big no no


3. Instant Ramen Noodles

It’s said that university and college students are constructed of magic and rubber – they’re almost impervious to harm. Give them a cup of instant coffee, the off power drink and instant ramen and they’re good to go. That may be so – but continue eating instant ramen as part of your daily diet once you move into the real world and life is suddenly going to get a lot more interesting – and not in a good way.

A packet of ramen can contain nearly 2,000 milligrams (mg) of sodium, which is 500 mg more than the American Heart Association’s daily recommended intake. That boosts blood pressure, which could lead to stroke and heart disease. Additionally, with carbohydrates making up most of the other ingredients, ramen provides almost no nutritional support.
