Chocolate for a cough
I just wanted to mention that some coughs can be helped by drinking hot chocolate. There is something in chocolate - theobromine - that is supposed to help persistent coughs.
Here is story that talked about this:
"Chocolate could provide the key to tackling a persistent cough. Researchers are carrying out the final stages of clinical trials on a drug that contains theobromine, an ingredient in cocoa and chocolate."
Hope this helps someone out there!
