Is it possible that chocolate could be a better cure for your cough? As a chocolate lover, I don’t really need to read any more. I have seen proof on the internet, and that is good enough for me!
If you don’t fall for everything you see on the internet, know that this claim is backed up by clinical research. The new claim comes in a guest post in The Daily Mail by Professor Alyn Morice.
This is not the first study to lead people to believe that chocolate is good medicine. Scientists from Imperial College London previously found that a compound in cocoa was better at suppressing a cough than codeine.
To read more of Professor Morice’s views, head over to The Daily Mail.
