Good News! Chocolate better than Cough Syrup.

The Mirror
Chocolate is better than cough syrup for curing your cough, doctor reveals

ut it turns out you might be better of indulging in a bar of Dairy Milk, as a doctor has said chocolate is better for cough and respiratory problems than standard medicine.

According to Professor Alyn Morice, head of cardiovascular and respiratory studies at the University of Hull and founding member of the International Society for the Study of Cough says, "chocolate can calm coughs".

The doctor even added that the supporting evidence is "actually as solid as a bar of Fruit and Nut". It's the perfect excuse.

As if one needed an excuse...
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

It is chocolate butter. It is only allowed to be called chocolate in the UK and seeing that you are leaving us it does not matter so call it chocolate if you wish.

It's chocolate. The study was done in the UK. With CHOCOLATE. Please stop moaning about irrelevant stuff. I doubt there's a single person on this board who is unaware of your views on UK chocolate, even if they never wanted to know. Since you recognise it doesn't matter, you can only be yapping about this again because you like the sound of your own voice.

On the topic - I've ever been that interested in CHOCOLATE. Haven't got much of a sweet tooth. However, I think if I had the choice between CHOCOLATE and cough syrup, I would pick the CHOCOLATE, so yay, I guess.

They said Cadbury's Dairy Milk which is not recognised by the EU as chocolate but as coca butter. Just saying. Dont compare superior Belgium chocolate with the inferior mess of the UK.

No it fucking isn't.

Complete fucking bullshit. It is allowed to be called chocolate in the EU. Get your facts right. The arbitrary ban on calling it chocolate was overturned in 2003 for fucks sake.

Look at the picture Bart. Talking of inferior UK chocolate always gets a reaction from a Brit. In 76 days it will not matter.

I prefer dark chocolate - about 72% cocoa solids...

Yeah, not buying the half-arsed spin, Dutchy. Your 'leg-pulling' falls victim to Poe's law - it's indistinguishable from ill-informed trolling.

My wife goes for the 90%. I find that very bitter. Mind you it would suit some people here.

I think he needs to stop shitting on the entire forum. Have you ever seen any post from him that doesn't look like this ?

I have a magnet on my fridge that reads "I've never met a chocolate that I didn't like". Pretty sure that's still true.
