New Role for Chicken Soup
It Fights Colds--and May Help Lower Blood Pressure
Japanese scientists have found that chicken soup, long a popular home remedy for the common cold, may have a new role. They found that the soup helps, alongside medication and other measures, in fighting high blood pressure. Chicken parts, such as legs, often used in the soup, contain collagen, known to help decrease blood pressure.
