Cough

Root Beer was created by pharmacist Charles E. Hires in 1876 on his honeymoon. He marketed it as an herbal tea made of various roots, berries, and herbs for cough and mouth sores.

Heroin was introduced in 1898 by Bayer as its new "sedative for coughs."

The speed of a cough is around 60mph.

Coughing can cause air to move through your windpipe faster than the speed of sound – over a thousand feet per second.

About 3,000 droplets of saliva are expelled in a single cough, and some of them fly out of the mouth at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.
