Hurray for the Common Cold!

Got a cold?  If it’s a cough that’s got you down, put away the cough syrup and suck down a piece of chocolate instead.  Researchers say sucking on a piece of chocolate long enough for it to melt can help soothe that cough faster than codeine-packed cough syrup – and it tastes SO much better!  Apparently the alkaloid in the chocolate can help suppress your cough.  Where was this research when I was a kid???
