I thank you for this debate.

I beleive that tomato soup is so much better than chicken soup becuase it has so many tastes and combinations.

I show you the proof here:

YOU CAN USE IT IN AND ON

(1ST) MEAT LOAF

(2ND) AND WHEN YOU MAKE SPICY TACOS

(3RD) STUFF BELL PEPPERS

(4TH) MAKING PIZZA FROM HOME MADE

(5TH) SPICY BEAN DIP FOR CHIPS FOR PARTY,S

(6TH) SPICY MEATBALL AND SPAGHETTI

(7TH) SPICY VEGETABLE BEEF SOUP

(8TH) SPICY GROUND BEEF FOR OTHER DISHES LIKE

HAMBURGER'S TO GIVE THE BEEF JUST A SPICY

TOUCH AND TO KEEP THEM FROM DRYING OUT ON

THE GRILL

(9TH) SPICY SALAS DIPS FOR CHIPS

(10TH) SPICY SLOPPY JOES

These are the possible combinations from a yahoo question about all the things you can do with tomato soup.

Thank you and I await your rebuttal.

Thanks for accepting! :)

First of all, just because a certain thing has many uses, does not necessarily make it better. There are thousands of uses for paper, but that doesn't make it better than medicine.

Chicken Soup is first off yummy. It has a variety of textures, with the noodles and soup, so you don't get bored of it easily. :)

Secondly, chicken noodle soup is proven healthy for you and helps you when you are sick. It contains many herbs that are beneficial to your health including ginger, thyme, sage, and many other. This creates a wonderful heath "potion."

Hello again polka, and as this is a fun debate I will treat it as such =]

first of all, let me refute your previous argument:

First of all, just because a certain thing has many uses, does not necessarily make it better. There are thousands of uses for paper, but that doesn't make it better than medicine.

Chicken Soup is first off yummy. It has a variety of textures, with the noodles and soup, so you don't get bored of it easily. :)

Secondly, chicken noodle soup is proven healthy for you and helps you when you are sick. It contains many herbs that are beneficial to your health including ginger, thyme, sage, and many other. This creates a wonderful heath "potion."

You are right, paper is not better than medicine, but having multiple uses does lend itself to having more things that can be done with it.

I have no doubt that it is yummy, as I am a fan of both soups. It does have a variety of textures, but if you use all of the combinations I listed then you will not "get bored."

Chicken noodle soup is proven to be healthy and wonderful for medicinal purposes, but so dos tomato soup:

The tomato is known as a powerhouse of nutrition. It contains a multitude of vitamins and minerals that act to support health. However, it was not until the discovery of the carotenoid lycopene that modern science began to truly recognize the healing power of the tomato.

Lycopene has recently become the poster child of bioactive substances found in food that demonstrate health benefits. Among these benefits, the risk of prostate and breast cancer decreases due to lycopene.11 Lycopene appears to have a favorable effect in treating many other cancers such as: lung, stomach, colorectal, oral, esophageal, pancreatic, bladder and cervical cancer.11 Also, research has shown lycopene to lower the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and reduce heart disease,1,2,5,6 as well as increase the resistance to lung cancer and exercise induced asthma.7,9 There is even some evidence that lycopene in tomatoes may help to prevent cataracts,32,33 age-related macular degeneration34 and sunburns.31 More and more research appears to show that lycopene assists the immune system in protecting the body from illness.

This is just a small Excerpt from http://www.townsendletter.com..., a website talking about the medicinal values of Tomatoes, thus proving that when combined with bread and crackers and such, tomato soup comes out on top.

Thank you and I await your rebuttal.

You said that tomatoe soup, since it can be used in many different areas, will not be something you will get bored of.

But, just becuase you add it into different things doesn't mean you won't get bored of it. Actually, using the same thing day after day, would get boring. Chicken noodle soup provide much variety at once.

"The tomato is known as a powerhouse of nutrition. It contains a multitude of vitamins and minerals that act to support health. However, it was not until the discovery of the carotenoid lycopene that modern science began to truly recognize the healing power of the tomato."

Chicken noodle soup is also full of vitamins and minerals. (Well, it actually depends on the brand you get, but usually:) Also, lycopene may reduce the risk of things such as cancer, but what is known to CURE a cold? No medicine you can find on the shelves at stores is known to kill colds. Chicken noodle soup is known to CURE things and has variety. May I also add that you can get chicken noodle soup with goldfish as the noodles! :) hehe :)

Hello, polka. I will refute:

You said that "tomatoe soup, since it can be used in many different areas, will not be something you will get bored of. "

What I meant was that since it can be used with almost anything, the frequent combinations will keep you interested.

you said:
"But, just becuase you add it into different things doesn't mean you won't get bored of it. Actually, using the same thing day after day, would get boring. Chicken noodle soup provide much variety at once."

I concede that point to you, but so does Tomato Soup, when combined with other things.

"Chicken noodle soup is also full of vitamins and minerals. (Well, it actually depends on the brand you get, but usually:) Also, lycopene may reduce the risk of things such as cancer, but what is known to CURE a cold? No medicine you can find on the shelves at stores is known to kill colds. Chicken noodle soup is known to CURE things and has variety. May I also add that you can get chicken noodle soup with goldfish as the noodles! :) hehe :)"

I also agree that Chicken Noodle soup is full of vitamins and minerals. I direct the reader, however, to the severity of cancer and the severity of a common cold. Maybe in the 1800's(earlier?) it was common for people to die of the cold, but not today. We have remedies, cold swabs, cold medicine, and The soup we are debating about. The cold is nothing to worry about, while cancer is. Thus why Tomato soup is healthier.

Besides, why have goldfish shaped noodles when it tastes great to put goldfish in your tomato soup?

The reader should decide on the better debater, not who they agree with. Thank you.

Thank you for the deabte, also, Tomatoe soup contains loads of butter which is unhealthy and the chicken in chicken noodle soup contains protein which makes you strong! :) I know the debate is over, but I just wanted to add a closing statement. :) Thanks again!

You should try tomato soup with a milk base instead of a water base.
