WE LOVE RAMEN: Eat Ramen Without Guilt! [Infographic]

All over the world -– whether Ramen itself or some other brand – university students are intimately familiar with the cheap, tasty, and wonderfully filling wonder that is instant noodles.

However, we’re constantly told how bad it is for you: it’s processed, it’ll make you fat, it’ll make your liver shrivel. I’ve even been told it’ll make your hair fall out (I don’t believe it…I refuse to).

  3. first off, the word "advertisement" is clearly stated at the top of the article.
    also, a lot of people are talking about the issue of sodium. i'd like to see something on the amount of protien in these meals.
