Yes, you know that instant ramen isn't good for you, but studies have confirmed just how harmful the prepackaged food can really be.

You can make these right in your kitchen 4 the same cheap cost but without all the junk in them. They're alluring to so many coz of the cost+convenience. thx Freya

OHH? I have been using the noodle but not the packet that comes with the package. Guess I'll have to stop altogether.

Article is telling people how awful it is to eat them while at the same time giving a hyperlink to get recipes for them.

Well this is a mainstay for the college kids as well as those on a limited income bracket. It takes money to eat well today and not all families can do that. It takes a better income to avoid sugar, fats, so on so forth and eat fresh veggies and fresh fruits.

One can buy a case of these noodles to fill stomachs vs buying a few oranges unfortunately. There are so many poor children in my county that they just had to open an after school place to feed children. Some of the schools had food pantries and slipping food into children's backpacks to carry them over the weekend.

90% of our children are on free or reduced breakfast and lunches. Food budgets were cut back so that the lunches became smaller and look more like gruel today. A salad that isn't a tea cup deep consists of one slice of cucumber and a couple leafs of lettuce. But is eaten as that is the only meal many children will get.

We've also a summer program that feeds children two meals a day, 5 days a week, while school is out. All I read about is the Corporate tools in DC wanting to cut out or back the food stamp program which these already hungry children most likely are trying to survive on. Ramon noodles becomes a meal, perhaps the only thing the child and some elders can afford to eat and then it's crap.

More American exceptionalism.........

Sadly, these Ramen noodles/soups are staple food for the poor in America...good for us or not.

those noodles are a chemical feast. it is easier and simpler to cook pasta. pasta comes in budget priced four pound bags. pasta can be broken in half, then half again to fit into small pots. some college kids try pasta with no sauce, and drop the chemical feast.
