Honey for your cough

Honey for your cough

Post by Taalibah on Tue Apr 14, 2009 2:51 pm

(New York Times)

“A spoonful of honey might quiet a child’s cough more effectively and safely than the most common over-the-counter cough medicine. Researchers tested 105 children …….Using questionnaires filled out by parents, the scientists measured cough frequency and severity, and the effect on the children’s and parents’ sleep. By all measures, honey provided the greatest relief.

Honey, the authors wrote in the December 2007 issue of The Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, has well-established antioxidant and antimicrobial effects.

In October 2007, a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel recommended a ban on over-the-counter cold medicine, including some brands containing dextro-methorphan, intended for children under age 6.

Dr. Ian M. Paul, the lead author and an associate professor of pediatrics at Penn State, said that parents should consider honey “as an alternative to cough medicine for children over age 1”. In rare cases, honey can cause infantile botulism in children under 1.”
