Chicken soup cures the common cold?

Feed(s): 

Cold and flu season is underway!  Experts are warning us to get our flu shots.  I already got mine, but there is something that is NOT the flu going around.  What to do when you get sick?  Of course, I'm not a doctor, but I'll follow the recommendations my mom and grandmother (and probably yours) always used.  Drink lots of fluids, get plenty of rest and stay home from work and school so you don't spread germs. And... chicken soup!

Depending on who you ask, that chicken soup can help cure the common cold... or at least make you feel better if you're sick.
