A research study has determined that children who get a dose of honey cough less and sleep better than those who get cough medicine with dextromethorphan (DM), the ingredient in most over-the-counter products for coughs.
DM cough medicines, which earn about $50 million in sales each year, have previously been shown to be of little benefit to children.
Honey has long been used as a natural remedy for sore throats and coughs. A common natural cure is tea with honey and lemon.Parents are advised not to give honey to any child under the age of 1 year; infants younger than that are at risk for botulism from honey.
