Ok, so what is everyones opinion on taking local honey to help with seasonal allergies? I'm sure everyone and their mother has heard that taking honey daily will help build a tolerance to pollen. There are however no published studies on it, and many who say it's foowy.
One train of thought is that "it's these tiny pollens carried by the wind — and not carried by bees — that tend to be allergens.". While I agree with that, it's also fair to say that those tiny pollen spores contaminate everything around. Seriously.. I've looked at my truck and wondered when it's turned from blue to yellow. So my "opinion" is that there are still spores from allergen plants in the honey and pollen collected, regardless on if they are just a wind dependable plant.
So... What do YOU think?
