Hi, I need help with this dilemma...
The effects of eating too many noodles are well documented, and I know what they do to our bodies health-wise. Because of this, I am cutting down.
However I'm really worried: for the past maybe 3-4 years I have had A LOT of noodles in my diet. Generally 2-3 times a week, sometimes even 4-5 depending. Mostly as an afternoon snack. I realise that this is VERY unhealthy, that is why I'm stopping! I'm just scared that I'll get cancer or another serious illness because of my past noodle eating habits. I've heard that eating noodles can cause cancer, ulcers, heart problems etc,,,
Of course during this time I would have healthy dinners and fairly healthy lunches, as well as doing regular excersize.
Is it possible that I can develop cancer etc,,, from my past habits, even if I stop now? I plan on adding more fruit and veg to my lunches as well as replacing Maggi with some unflavoured vermicelli/rice noodles and soy. Will cutting down now and making my diet healthier prevent years of frequently eating unhealthy noodles from taking a toll on me? And is there a chance I could get a serious illness from them?
