A 'chocolate cure' for persistent cough?

A 'chocolate cure' for persistent cough?: "Here's the perfect excuse to gorge on chocolate without a sense of guilt - scientists claim it can cure a persistent cough.

At present, most medications to control the symptoms are opiate-based ones like cough syrups containing codeine, a narcotic."
