Don’t Eat Too Much Ramen Says Down Under Doc

My colleague at work “Wild” Bill McCollom sent me this story, but apparently if you eat too much ramen and not enough other stuff, you can get sick.

“There seems to be an acceptance out there that getting by on less nutritious food is a typical part of being a uni student,” she said. “But a diet of baked beans and instant noodles is not good enough when health and academic results are at stake.
