Chocolate can cure your cough
Source: Daily Telegraph
Date: 05 December 2002
Many of today's papers report that a key ingredient in chocolate could be the secret to curing ticklish coughs. A trial was carried out at the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College, London, during which 10 healthy volunteers were made to cough using an extract of chilli peppers. It was found that theobromine, found in cocoa beans, could be more effective than codeine or a placebo at preventing coughing. The Telegraph points out that a person would have to eat 25 fingers of Kit Kat or 25 tubes of Rolos to obtain the required effect. The results of the trial were reported at a meeting of the British Thoracic Society yesterday.
