Honey can ease childhood cough

Children aged one to five who were suffering from throat infections coughed less often and slept better after taking 10g of honey before bedtime, researchers reported.
Honey's high levels of antioxidants could make it a better alternative to cough syrups, many of which are not proven to work and which can be dangerous if parents administer accidental overdoses, they wrote in the Pediatrics journal.
The study involved almost 300 Israeli children with throat infections. Three quarters were given a teaspoon of either eucalyptus honey, citrus honey or labiatae honey before bed, while the rest took a placebo.
