Move over cough syrup, there is a better cough remedy out there according to a University of Hull professor: chocolate. Professor Alyn Morice, member of the International Society for the Study of Cough, says “Chocolate can calm coughs. I know that might sound like something out of Mary Poppins, but as an independent clinician who has spent years researching the mechanism of cough, I can assure you the evidence is actually as solid a bar of Fruit and Nut.” After a large study, named ROCOCO, was done on the subject, a new medication that has cocoa in it was found to work better than regular old cough syrup with linctus. “The idea that chocolate could cure a cough might sound a bit mad, but the ROCOCO researchers believe the benefits are primarily down to the demulcent properties of cocoa,” Morice said. How do you feel about chocolate being a better remedy for a cough than cough syrup? Do you think this is good news or bad news? Why?
