Researchers say chocolate can be a cure for cough relief. A chemical in cocoa beans may be more effective then the codeine in cough syrup.

After a study in the United Kingdom, sixty percent of patients saw improvement in getting rid of their cough. Doctors say it's not an actual cure, but why not eat a bar or two of chocolate if it could help you.
