Since 2003, a list of "Top 10 junk food published by the world health organization" has been widely circulated in China. On the list, convenient and tasty convenience foods are also listed as junk food. In fact, the list is completely bogus! "The world health organization has never published a list of junk food products," it said.
Why does the world health organization label instant noodles as junk food when they are so portable, easy to preserve and come in so many flavors? As for instant noodles, who says they are not classified as junk food! In fact, there are two definitions of "junk food". The second is food that provides more nutrients than the body needs, making them redundant. There is no such thing as "junk food" in scientific nutrition circles.
