Gifts of Honey

Did you know that honey is an anti-microbial? And a proven cough remedy? 
These are not folk remedy tales, but randomized controlled research studies:

  1. A South African research study with mine workers demonstrated the equivalent benefit of topical honey, compared to a conventional wound healing topical, for treating shallow wounds and abrasions. (Honey cost significantly less.)
  2. An American study compared conventional cough suppressant and honey for coughing children. Honey surpassed the cough medicine on every measure, including cough frequency and severity, and sleep quality.

And it tastes good, too….
