Huh?? I read this story and tried to remember the details in class on Saturday, but could not really remember what the point was.  Here is an interesting story that was internationally published about a month ago.  The story is about a China zoo feeding chicken soup to their Pandas.  The Pandas love the soup!!  It was to help them relax and get more sleep.  I think this is because chicken soup has a chemical that makes you sleepy.  This chemical is called Tryptophan and it is found in turkey, chicken, milk, cheese, fish, eggs, tofu, soy, sesame and pumpkin seeds, nuts, peanuts, and peanut butter.  Here are links to the story in the news.
