Healing with Honey

By Nicci Micco, March/April 2009

Sorting through the claims and science of the health benefits of honey.


READER'S COMMENT:
"i remember when i was lttle i had an accident and made a hole in my cheek. My grandmother put wild bee honey on the wound and it healed soon and no painful stitches! There must be something in it that makes it work. "

I am allergic to honey (and most other yummy things). I use Agave, which tastes like honey, but comes from the agave plant, the same plant used to make tequila. Would agave provide the same, or other health benefits ?
