Interesting Rhinovirus Study + Bonus Chicken Soup Recipe

This 2000 paper, published in Chest, shows that chicken soup is capable of inhibiting neutrophil chemotaxis in vitro, thus providing some evidence for the soup's traditional role as a home cure for respiratory infections.

Helpfully, the soup recipe used in the study is also included. And it sounds delicious.

Highlights include Materials list ("Soup") and several amusing citations, including: "Traditional chicken soup was prepared according to a family recipe, which will be referred to as “Grandma’s soup” (C. Fleischer; personal communication; 1970)."

All praise to Jeff Brand (Twitter @djjazzyjeffmby) for the link.

  1. LOL, I may try this recipe at home. I wonder why you would add extra chicken wings to it - maybe for extra concentrated chicken broth taste? I like the recommendation that the unused cooked meat makes for great chicken parmesan.
