*cough, cough, cough*

OK. This is one for all you chocaholics out there.

Doctors at London’s National Heart & Lung Institute say a compound in chocolate called theobromine suppresses sensory nerves and is more effective against coughs than codeine.

So next time you get a little tickle, why not chuck away the linctus and try hoeing into a bar of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk, huh?

But if munching choccies to stop your cough gives you a migraine, then just nip to the local greengrocer and grab some apples.

A study by The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation of Chicago found the scent of green apples reduced the severity of their subjects’ migraines.

And if that isn’t weird enough for you, when your migraine is better, strap on a pair of high heels and improve your sex life.

I kid you not. Wearing shoes with a moderate heel can improve your pelvic floor muscles. High heels “directly work the pleasure muscles which are linked to orgasm,” says urologist Dr Maria Cerruto.

Now, whether or not you also ruin your feet, posture, back and various other bits of your body? Or trip over and measure your length in the High Street? Well, you pays yer money, and you makes yer choice.

I often wondered why women tortured themselves in those damn things. There is no evidence, apparently, that men wearing high heels improves their sex life. Unless you know better?
