DALLAS, Texas (PIX11) -- This may be the worst news for college students since the invention of Sally Mae.

A new study found that instant noodles are bad for your heart. Diets that revolve around Ramen noodles could lead to metabolic syndrome, which includes symptoms like heart disease, diabetes and abdominal obesity.

"This research is significant since many people are consuming instant noodles without knowing possible health risks," Dr. Hyun Joon Shin, who led the study on behalf of the Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital, said in a Newswise report.

"My hope is that this study can lay a foundation for future research about the health effects of instant noodle consumption," Shin said.
