Cure for cough

  1. Feb 26, 2013 #1
    I get to know from some website that stewing a mixture of banana, crystal sugar(not a candy!)and some water can for two hours can yield a soup that cure cough if consume together with the banana stewed.

    Is there an experimental scientific proof that this method of curing cough leave no side effect and is effective???

    Thanks a lot for your concern.

    A cough is just a symptom that can be caused by just about anything, so anything that soothes the symptom can "relieve" the symptom, at least temporarily. A sip of water can relieve the urge to cough.
