Instant Noodles can cause Cancer

Dear instant noodle lovers,
Make sure you break for at least 3 days after one session of instant noodles before you eat your next packet! Please read the info shared to me by a doctor. My family stopped eating instant noodles more than 5 years ago after hearing about the wax coating the noodles - the wax is not just in the Styrofoam containers but it coats the noodles. This is why the instant noodles do not stick to each other when cooking.

If one were to examine the ordinary Chinese yellow noodles in the market, one will notice that, in their uncooked state the noodles are oily. This layer of oil prevents the noodles from sticking together.

Wanton noodles in their uncooked state have been dusted with flour to prevent them sticking together. When the hawker cooks the noodles, notice he cooks them in hot water and then rinses them in cold water before cooking them in hot water again. This process is repeated several times before the noodles are ready to be served. The cooking and rinsing process prevents noodles from sticking together.

The hawker then "lowers the noodles in oil and sauce to prevent the noodles from sticking if they are to be served dry. Cooking instructions for spaghetti require oil or butter to be added in the water when boiling the spaghetti to prevent the pasta from sticking together. Otherwise, one gets a big clump of spaghetti!

There was an SBC (now TCS) actor some years ago, who at a busy time of his career had no time to cook, resorted to eating instant noodles everyday. He got cancer later on. His doctor told him about the wax in instant noodles. The doctor told him that our body will need up to 2 days to clear the wax. There was also an SIA steward who after moving out from his mother's house into his own house, did not cook but ate instant noodles almost every meal. He had cancer, and has since died from it.

Nowadays the instant noodles are referred as " cancer noodles ".

STOP the misinformation!
1. Please name the doctor or origin of source.
2. Please name the poor soul who died so we can ascertain the cause of death.
3. If these crabs are true, how come not one health agency from various gov. post any warning / banning their citizens from importing/consuming?

Yes, I agree tell me who is spreading this misinformation about wax in instant noodles. The most harmful thing about the packages of instant noodles is the flavoring packet which has a ton of MSG.

Pretty funny... OMG, wax causes cancer!

MSG isn't exactly much to worry about either for the vast majority of people.

Have you guys ever heard of salt and fat? Duh!

look, for all those people who think noodles are toxic, grow up some of us can't afford fancy food and most of this is bullshit. It affects 1 in 100000 people who even eat noodles and even less. People who say crap about instant noodles are the real cancer in society.
