Can Good Broth Resurrect the Dead? No, and It Might Be Your Last Souper!

There’s a  South American proverb that says “Good broth will resurrect the dead.”   I always thought that was a bit of stretcher but I spent more than year looking for the evidence anyway.    I’m into living forever after all.    Much to my dismay, I found that broth can kill.   Indeed a bowl of soup may be your  “Last Souper.”   It was for Julia Child, Robert E. Lee, Marie Antoinette and many others after all.   Tune into this YouTube to learn more.

    Interesting post. I agree with you that broth is a nourishing food with an interesting nutritional profile per the tests we have run on it.

    However, I would point out that bone broth is very high in glycine, which is an amino acid not otherwise found in abundance in a normal diet. Glycine, the smallest amino acid, isn’t essential in the diet, because the body makes as much glycine as it uses from always-available small molecules in the tissues. According to this research, glycine promotes cancer growth http://www.sciencemag.org/content/336/6084/1040.

    I was curious how you reconcile that with the putative anti-cancer properties of broth. Additionally, collagen, found in broth, is found to support tumour growth http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-us/cancer-news/press-release/scientists-reveal-how-collagen-scaffolding-drives-tumour-growth

    I look forward to reading your new book and your answers. Please note we consume broth regularly, but I am curious about your expert insight into these concerns.

    I have a question? I have your book. It says to be careful not to cook your broth on to high of a temperature because it will destroy some of the broth’s valuable properties. But in the the soup recipes it says to take the broth and boil it. Could you please explain this.

    Thanks,
