Reactions in Asia to instant noodle study

In this Aug. 19. 2014 photo, Han Seung-youn, 36, eats "ramyeon" instant noodle at a Ramyeon restaurant in Seoul, South Korea. Instant noodles are an essential, even passionate, part of life for many in South Korea and other Asian countries. Hence the emotional heartburn caused by a Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital study in the United States that found excessive consumption of instant noodles by South Koreans was associated with risks for diabetes, heart disease or stroke. The study has provoked feelings of wounded pride, mild guilt, stubborn resistance, even nationalism among South Koreans, who eat more instant noodles per capita than anyone in the world.
