Chocolate can cure cough
Yes! A British study shows that chocolate is better than coughing medicine at curing cough. For a chocoholic like myself that is good news indeed. I guess I don’t have to feel bad about all the McDonald’s chocolate muffins I’m eating these days, since they started selling a small latte and a muffin for SEK 10.
It’s the theobromine in chocolate that reduces the cough three times as effectively as the codein that is the active ingredient in ordinary coughing medicine.
Also, with theobromine there are no known side effects, writes Aftonbladet.
