MSG the Deadly

Like ramen noodles? It tastes so good right? Exactly. But Ramen noodles aren't good for you, and I'm sure you've heard this from a lot of people. But listen to what I have to say.

The seasoning pack that comes with the Ramen noodles contains MSG. These are the side effects of consuming MSG too regularly:

  • Headache, sometimes called MSG headache
  • Flushing
  • Sweating
  • Sense of facial pressure or tightness
  • Numbness, tingling or burning in or around the mouth
  • Rapid, fluttering heartbeats (heart palpitations)
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Weakness

So putting MSG in seasoning packs should be illegal, I agree. But until that law passes, here is what you can do to make Ramen noodles and cinch healthier.

1. Add vegetables, like peas, broccoli, and bell peppers. 
2. Don't just eat Ramen noodles, but have other things with it, like chicken, shrimp, or vegetables.
3. Don't consume Ramen noodles on a regular bases, with out without adding the MSG seasoning pack. Ramen noodles doesn't have any nutrition for your body, and it's not healthy to eat a lot. 
4. Add a dash of pepper or some slices of onion

Hope this helps! :)
