Here is a very interesting review of the medicinal properties of honey.
My wife works in major hospital and deals with cancer patients daily. They are really talking up the use of honey for certain issues and have been doing lots of clinical trials with good results.
Eating a little propalis daily was recently discovered to reduce the size of prostate tumors. If you stop eating the propalis the tumors come back.
I am a prostate cancer survivor. I extract propolis and take it regularly. I also eat honey daily. further, I believe there is evidence that bee venom is helpful.
And prolonging life may someday be possible thru bees. I read a study about how bees overwinter. They triple or more their expected life span during the winter season by some mechanism. If we could figure out how they do it and apply it to humans, we may live long and reverse some aging factors.
Wow! Eating honey prolongs life and per the article alcohol is the least contributing hazard. Life is good!
