    Default Bacteria from bees possible alternative to antibiotics

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0908093741.htm

    "Summary:Thirteen lactic acid bacteria found in the honey stomach of bees have shown promising results in a series of studies. The group of bacteria counteracted antibiotic-resistant MRSA in lab experiments. The bacteria, mixed into honey, has healed horses with persistent wounds. The formula has previously been shown to protect against bee colony collapse."

    Kind of cool but I have to wonder about an article that starts:

    >Raw honey has been used against infections for millennia, before honey -- as we now know it -- was manufactured and sold in stores.

    How is honey "manufactured" as we now know it?

    It's the same store that manufactures meat. I was told one time when I was sharing pictures of a deer I harvested on facebook that I should get my meat from the store so no animals are harmed in the making of it. lol
