Grandmothers around the world tout their chicken soupas being good for what ails you. Chicken soup has been hailed as a cure for the common cold and an antihistamine (and even nicknamed “Jewish penicillin” – a nod to moms who have served it up to their sick kids.) Grandma may be on to something - the fabled healing properties of old-fashioned chicken soup has garnered a growing body of scientific evidence:

•    Pulmonary specialist and professor at the UCLA School for Medicine, Irwin Ziment, M.D.,  has shown an amino acid released from chicken during cooking chemically resembles the drug acetylcysteine, prescribed for bronchitis and other respiratory problems and found in some cold medications.

•    Spices such as garlic and pepper - ancient treatments for respiratory diseases - work by thinning mucus and make breathing easier.

•    The steam itself may be the real benefit - sipping the hot soup and breathing in the steam helps to temporarily clear congestion.  

While there is no conclusive evidence of a cure-all, it does seem probable that chicken soup helps alleviate annoying symptoms. At the very least, chicken soup provides a hot comforting meal and re-hydration. So as Grandma told you  -  slurp up when you're feeling under the weather.

  5. First of all I would like to say superb blog!
    I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I've had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

  14. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

  18. Just be sure to maintain client privacy and security information. These can be lucrative but they often come
    with large start up costs and require going out
    and selling, having parties, or calling on clients. Thus they are all set to cheat people with their fake work
    deals and projects.
