In the early XXth century diarrhea was the cause of death for many babies in Germany and in the whole world. Professor Ernst Moro (1874 - 1951) the head of the children hospital in Heidelberg at that time found out by experiment that a simple carrot soup decreased the death rate of babies suffering from diarrhea by nearly 50%.

A German study published in 2002[1] outlines that acidic oligosaccharides formed in aqueous extracts from carrots (carrot soup) may lead to less adherence of bacterial agents to the mucosal wall of the bowel, thus being a more effective treatment for acute gastrointestinal infections of children than glucose-electrolyte-solution oral rehydration.

In 2009, experiments showed that Professor Moro's Carrot Soup can cure diarrhea caused by bacteria which are resistant to antibiotics.[2]

Even today the diarrhea is one of the main causes of death among children in developing countries, and many lives can be saved by using this simple recipe which can cure the disease almost as well as antibiotics.

How to prepare the Moro's Carrot Soup:

1. Boil 500 grams of peeled carrots for a full hour and then purée them.
2. Add boiled water to make up a liter
3. Add 3 grams of cooking salt.

Consuming several portions of Moro's Carrot Soup daily, should help people recover from diarrhea - without antibiotics!
