I just finished reading your entire blog on honey. Lots of information.
First of all, I am not vegan, and I do understand that honey would not be in their diet.
However, for those that are not vegan, I do have to disagree with this article about the health benefits of honey. I have seen allergies and asthma wiped out with the use of honey. A case in point, me. I have suffered from asthma since I was 28 years old. I lived on medications and inhalers. Six months after taking honey with apple cider vinegar, I was free of any type of allergies. I no longer needed inhalers or medication. I had no more hayfever, no more sinus problems of any kind and no more sinus headaches. Best of all, I now have an indoor cat. This would have been an impossibility.
When I recommend honey as a health food, I always emphasize that raw honey be used. This is indeed the practice of acquiring honey from their natural habitat and only removing the surplus. I buy my honey from the local farmers. There are websites where natural honey can be bought.
I in no way recommend pure honey, which is the commercial brand. I am aware that honey is being marketed in everything you buy commercially. This and the commercial products are counterfeit. Any commercially made food has ingredients that will do you harm. There are also commercial products that are now being touted as "organic." Again, this is counterfeit. They are as organic as they were before. This is only to make money and fool the public into buying their products.
I will say I was not aware as to how commercial beekeepers treated their bees, although I am not surprised. I am also aware of the harm being done to the environment by mistreating honeybees and of their gradual disappearance by genetically altered plants. I am aware that a lot of destruction of our planet is going on and yes me must rise to stop it by educating the public.
Again, I will disagree as to classifying honey as bee vomit. The honey is regurgitated by the bees. Regurgitation is the voluntary bringing up of nutrients. Vomiting is involuntary. This may be a moot point to some but there is a difference.
Honey is a food that has been used for medicinal purposes throughout the ages going back to biblical times.
In conclusion, I have personally seen too many people brought back to health with this food, including myself, and will disagree that honey is harmful or that its benefits are marginal at best. I do agree that we must respect nature in all that we do.
