This is something I've heard people say quite a while ago when I was younger. Raw noodle don't give you worms. Or do they? I really do not think this is true. Heck, I've eaten raw noodle quite a few times before and I've never got 'em

This goes back to the old spontaneous generation stories. No, eating raw noodles does not give you worms. Unless of course your raw noodles are infected with some worm eggs. LOL. Most food borne worms that infect people come from eating undercooked infected meat. Case in point, tapeworms, they infect cows and pigs then you if you eat the infected cow or pig.

I always nibble a raw Macaroni noodle or two when I'm making mac-n-cheese... no Alien creatures have clawed their way out of me yet though.

the alien creature already came out seeingevil, but it took the form of another member. To bad for Peter Parker , he had to eat one of those 99cent cup of noodles which ended up havin' me inside. On a serious note whoever believes in gettin' worms from eatin' raw noodles must still think Santa Claus exists( don't bash me for that comment, I'm just sayin' it in my opinion).

One time I opened a generic brand of Mac and Cheese box, a worm was inching it's way out! Must have been a larvel weevil? The day prior I ate Mac and Cheese of the same brand without notice of worm/s. There was no floater, so hopfully that was just a fluke the 2nd time. Way to loose your appetite for a while! That worm, if it was a weevil, didn't seem like it'd use me as a host, however the suspition of the outcome was creepy!

Just to be on the safe side, please cook your noodles well. The ones that I cook are dry and right out of the box or plastic bag. Plus, it's better enjoyed when served warm!

I agree with the post that mention the 'visual aspect' of most pasta itself.

Through the ages the different looks of pasta has generated a number of unique names and as they got thinner, different cultures would associate 'names' that matched the visual aspect of what they were eating, case in point the following earliest terms refer to length and thinness, for example: Arabic itrija and sev or seviyan (from Hindi sevika 'thread'), Italian vermicelli ('small worms', originally, finger-length), and later, Italian spaghetti (from spago 'string'). Other terms refer to the dough and to shaping techniques that involve cutting (Italian tagliatelle, from tagliare 'to cut'), rolling, or stamping.

So I can see how a "Urban Legend" or "Old Wives Tale" evolved to what some of us have heard. But as has been quoted in above posts, it's probably best to inspect 'any product' before consuming.
