Drs. Abraham Ohry and Jenni Tsafrir of Tel Aviv University’s Sackler School of Medicine believe chicken soup meets World Health Organization criteria for classification as an “essential drug” based on 2,000 years of “evidence-based” results. Chicken soup may never undergo a randomized clinical trial, they argue, not only because it would be too difficult for scientists to settle on a definitive recipe but chiefly because “depriving the control group of chicken soup would, in our opinion, be unethical.”
Amen to that!
