    I love ramen its my fav i think japenese have some of the best foods in the world i mean its very good for you and really good what could be better.
    Assuming most of the ramen you eat is of the instant variety: you couldn't possibly be more wrong. Check out the sodium content on the back of your next ramen purchase. Instant ramen consumption (along with a diet high in instant soups, soy sauce and salt-cured/treated meats) is one of the reasons that the Japanese have the highest rate of stomach cancer in the world. (stomach cancer is one of the leading causes of death in Japanese).

    Instant ramen is about as junky as junk food gets.

    While some instant ramen companies claim that the acids in their soups are good for your health and actually PREVENT cancer, they're overlooking the face that a cup of instant ramen is like swallowing a giant block of chemically-processed salt.

    Re whoever said something about liking okonomiyaki.

    Kinda subjective, really, because it's always made a different way each time (hence its name, okonomi-yaki - "whatever you like, cooked" is its direct translation; "konomi" means "interest" or "liking", and is written using the character for "suki"). My host mom used to throw pieces of bittergourd into hers - some people find that absolutely foul, but I love it.

    no more subjective than saying "I like pizza" or "I like dumplings".

    And while a few of the contents may change, the "way" it's prepared is always more or less the same.
