In all honesty I do not know the answer to this and I would need to do some more research to finding out, but what did get me on the subject, was for the last couple of days I have been replacing my sugar intake with honey, as refined sugar can increase you risk of cancer.
I have to admit when I replaced the sugar with honey on my breakfast cereal after 45 years, I didn’t think I could do it, but hey its fine I just knew that the sugar on my muesli was defeating the object
So having converted so easily I wasn’t sure if it had any benefits at all, but I did know that my Uncle´s Sister used honey to finally repair a wound from a near fatal road accident, which normal medication could not.
So after a little research I also found that bee keepers suffer less from cancer and arthritis than any other occupational group worldwide, interesting no!
For more information on the health benefits of honey I suggest you read this article from Natural News now one of my favourite websites.
