We have collected all the health benefits of soup (and this does not take into account the wonderful smell, which pervades the whole house during cooking).

The Health Benefits of Soup

Soup for the vitamins.

Soups (especially vegetable based soups) have a very high concentration of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B, K, C, dietary fiber, antioxidants and more. All these vitamins are concentrated in one bowl, low in calories.
  • Starting a meal with a bowl of low-calorie soup makes the amount of calories eaten at the same meal fall by about 20%. Is there a better way to maintain a healthy body weight?
  • Soup in order to prevent a feeling of swelling, Salts in the body absorb water and cause a feeling of swelling. Vegetables such as onions, celery, leeks and more are rich in potassium, which binds to salts and helps to remove excess fluid from the body.
  • Soup for calming hunger, The first pot must be worked on and prepared, but soup is kept for long days in the refrigerator (and even longer in the freezer), and it is easy to heat a serving as an afternoon snack.

  • Adding chicken, meat, legumes or fish to soup turns the soup into a full meal. The vegetables are added to the protein, and together with a carbohydrate supplement (preferably whole grains) such as noodles, rice or couscous, turn the bowl into a nutritious, satisfying and healthy meal.

Health benefits.

Already in the 12th century, doctors recommended chicken soup, also known as the "Jewish Pancillan." Since then, modern science has confirmed their intuition:
  • An amino-powerful chicken called cystine, which dilutes the phlegm and makes it easier to release.
  • Edible chicken broth is effective in removing nasal mucus.
  • The carrot in the soup is a good source of vitamin A, which helps fight infections.
  • Onion, garlic and ginger strengthen the immune system, anti-inflammatory, stimulate blood circulation and make it a natural antibiotic. It is recommended to put a generous amount into the soup pot.
  • Chicken soup with vegetables slows down the movement of cells that concentrate in the lung area, thus alleviating the symptoms of colds
  • The body is constantly fluctuating and trying to regulate itself. The hot soup immediately injects warmth into the body and helps us warm up

Researchers Identified a Virus that Attacks Cancer Cells

Researchers identified a virus that attacks human cancer cells can distinguishes Healthy cells.
Audio Version Of This Post
Viruses are usually supposed to worry us, but this is not the case with inoculate viruses. those that infect cancer cells and kill them, ignoring healthy cells. So it is no wonder that the search for such viruses attracts many researchers.

The Seneca Valley virus.This virus also known as Senecavirus affects pigs and cows. In recent years it has been found that the virus attacks human cancer cells.

The ability to identify tumors and ignore normal cells tested in two trials. The first in relapsed solid tumors in children and the second in lung carcinoma.

Experiments also found that the immune system was removing the virus from the body. Thus preventing it from completing its anticancer action.
Ongoing research to understand how the Seneca Valley virus may be used for cancer treatments.Researchers at the University of Otago in New Zealand discovered in 2017. That the vi…

New study suggests, people with better sense of smell have a better sense of direction

People with a good sense of smell also have a better sense of direction, suggesting a link between the two systems, a new study suggestsWhy do we have a sense of smell?
The smell of fruit directs us (or at least the lemurs) to the most mature fruit, and even our interpersonal relationships are affected by scents. But some researchers believe that its first use by the first animals, the advantage it gave them over the lack of sense of smell, is navigation. 

Now researchers from Canada have shown that people with a better understanding of smell also navigate better.

The olfactory bulb, the region of the brain that receives information about odors from the nose and makes the initial processing of the smell, exists in many species of animals. It has identified in mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish, and there is a similar structure, even in crabs and insects. 

For some, the bulb is tiny compared to the size of the brain, and for others, it is enormous. A study published several years ago showe…

1. Sickle cell anemia can be cured by transplantation of stem cellsSickle cell anemia is a severe and common blood disease in which more than 4 million people worldwide are infected.

In April, a pair of scientists at the National Human Genome Research Institute announced that they had completely cured a 26-year-old man with sickle cell anemia, Through the transplantation of healthy stem cells in the body, they hope and believe that similar results will also occur in the future as more patients receive similar treatment with stem cells.
