Will eating too much instant noodles leads to cancer?

Postby grigor94 » Mon Aug 27, 2012 2:33 pm

My younger brother has been eating ALOT of instants noodles. An average of 5 packet/wk. Sometimes, he eat 2 packets in one go. I heard from somewhere that eating too much instant noodles may cause cancer. I wonder if it is true. He is FAT, probably 70+kg at the age of 15 and has some symptoms of having hair loss.

it could be possible they would cause cancer. but many things we do and consume put you at risk. i would be more concerned with the sodium content and the nutritional content. i think if you eat them once in a while for a quick meal, then that would be ok. but 5 or more packs a week just isnt healthy and he should consider other alternatives. he needs healthy carbs and protein to help with the weight issue. the hair loss is not normal for a 15 year old and maybe should see a doc. he could have other health issues like type 2 diabetes or thyroid problems among other things.

Certain chemicals and high concentrations of chemicals in instant noodles can cause cancer such as; dioxin, plasticizers... It's the wax that coats the noodles to stop them from sticking to each other that does the most damage.
His chances of getting cancer are multiplied by the fact that he appears overweight although it's hard to determine since you haven't said his height.

Hair loss is not a symptom of cancer itself, it's caused by the treatment. Chemotherapy, which literally means "chemical therapy" works by making chemicals attack cells that divide fast (rapid division is a universal propriety of malignant/cancerous cells) and tragically these chemical agents can't tell non-malignant rapid dividing cells from malignant ones so hair follicles, stomach lining,etc Are also attacked causing hair loss (not in all cases though) and nausea, constipation,etc.

Instant noodles have a lot of E-numbers which are known to cause cancer. They are also filled with a lot of other chemicals which overall are not going to lead to good health. He's not getting any nutrition from it, and he probably feels hungry a lot due to that, which might explain why he's overweight. Just overall a BAD idea to eat the many instant noodles so i'd get him to stop.

1. Chronic & severe constipation [+ heavy quantum of accumulated feces in the rectum & the large intestine] with a displaced solar plexus. Bad diet with McDonald’s pizzas, burgers, KFC-deep freeze and deep fried chicken, pork, hot dogs, high rich calorie diets-obesity, etc. As a result, most of the Americans/Europeans are cancer victims due to chronic constipation issues.
