I read recently that eating instant ramen and other forms of instant noodles (not frozen or refrigerated) are bad for you. It can create toxins in your brain causing brain death :(

Everything we do can (and, eventually, will) kill us.

Instant Noodle products aren't quite as nutricious as inner tubes or old knotty shoelaces. Gah, I would never willingly consume a Mr. Noodles. Toxiicity and brain-death aside, it's too much prep for a guy like me. If I can't eat it it out of the box, the bag, the wrapper or the rind, I may not eat it at all.

Perhaps there is a printed post on this pot noodle peril that has panicked the populace?

There are scores of things that could happen to you that would be worse than death by noodle. Besides, you said these noodles kill the brain. Most things done by people seem to have the deliberate aim to kill brain cells, while these noodles only do it by accident!

I need proof! I have a co-worker who pretty much eats ramen noodles every day! I have not seen any decline in her intellect.

Besides there are no guarantees in life & everyone dies eventually. Might as well enjoy one's life while it lasts!

nope it is a fact. It happens with all food if not preserved properly. This is not overtime it is only after eating a few packages. It happens with steak, chicken, etc. If food is left out in a heated environment it will go rancid. Instant noodles go rancid since there is fat in them (to make the soup).
