Here is part of an email I received this morning:
The good news is that if you’re still coughing, according to a “cough suppressant” study performed by London’s National Heart and Lung Institute,” theobromine significantly outperformed codeine to stop a cough — whether from a cold or a chronic cough.
The good news nature of this item is that theobromine is an active ingredient in — ta-dah — Chocolate! The info I picked up today goes on to say that 2 oz. of dark chocolate (for an adult) should be eaten to stop coughing. Dark is superior to milk chocolate because dark contains more of the good stuff.
I’m trying the chocolate cure!
